Starkville High School football coach Jamie Mitchell believes getting a pair of assistant coaches with 23 total years of experience will help his program's surge into the future.
David Boykin joins the Yellowjackets as offensive coordinator, while Kevin Farmer will work with the cornerbacks.
The hiring of Boykin and Farmer was made official by the school board at their monthly meeting Tuesday night.
Boykin came to Starkville from Louisville, where he served as offensive coordinator for M.C. Miller, but he held the same position at Noxubee County. He was the head coach at Caledonia High School and also was an assistant on the staff of Mark Hudspeth at the University of North Alabama.
"I've got to believe we're more excited to get him than he is to come," Mitchell said. "We're just tickled to death. He's a guy who has coached on the collegiate level and has been very successful on the high school level. You look at what he's done offensively and he's certainly a guy that gives me a big asset to bounce ideas off of and create new ideas. If this spring is any indication of how this is going to go, it's going to be a great partnership between he and us.
"When you talk about a guy with 15 years in the business, that's a real plus for us to get a guy with those credentials."
