Berry just completed his seventh season with Dawson Odums and the Jaguars, where he climbed from offensive line coach to offensive coordinator and assistant head coach.

In addition to coaching 10 linemen who have earned All-SWAC recognition, Berry has also been a big part of three SWAC West Division championships and the 2013 league title.

He also produced an offense that averaged nearly 40 points per game in 2016 and landed McKinley running back Lenard Tillery at the top of the SWAC career rushing list.

The Jags are now looking for Berry’s replacement.
