Although coach Peeler may seem young he has quickly moved thru the collegiate ranks. Peeler has the resume which draws attention. The Kosciusko, Mississippi native played football at Louisiana Tech and later worked there as a graduate assistant.

Peeler also spent time coaching at Itawamba Community College and Independence Community College in Kansas. However, it was his last coaching job which really speaks volumes about Jacob Peeler and his coaching ability.

While coaching receivers at Cal, Peeler built a very impressive resume. In his four seasons at Cal coaching inside receivers, Peeler was outstanding as both a coach and recruiter.

According to OleMissSports.com, Peeler was responsible for one of the greatest wide receiving corps in the Pac12.

"Cal set or equaled nine single-season school or modern-era records on the offense side of the ball in 2014 while Peeler was working with the inside receivers as a graduate assistant, all of which were broken in 2015. Cal ranked in the top 25 nationally in a total of seven offensive categories in 2014, including passing offense (6th, 346.0 ypg), scoring offense (10th, 38.3 ppg), and total offense (13th, 495.2 ypg). ~OleMissSports.com"

It’s obvious Jacob Peeler is a great coach and recruiter and he realizes the talent he will have at his disposal in Oxford. With the fast paced Longo offense there will be a lot of receivers getting lots of looks this season. This offense will be exciting to watch and should be wide open all the time.
