Missouri assistant football coach Josh Henson in talks with Southern Miss

Missouri's co-offensive line coach has spoken with Southern Miss about possibly joining as a coordinator, despite being a candidate for the Tigers' coordinator position.

The Missouri Tigers' John Henson has spoken with new Southern Miss coach Todd Monken about possibly joining his staff as a coordinator. The co-offensive line coach is also a candidate for Missouri's vacant coordinator position after David Yost stepped down, and will wait on the situation to resolve before deciding to leave.

Like Henson, receivers coach Andy Hill is another candidate that could be promoted internally to coordinator, or both coaches could share the duties. Yost's departure also leaves a vacancy at quarterbacks coach.

Henson and Monken both served as coaches under Les Miles for three years at Oklahoma State and two years at LSU. Monken left LSU after 2006 and went to the NFL, coaching with the Jacksonville Jaguars for four years before returning to Oklahoma State in 2011 to run the Cowboys offense.

This season, Missouri went 5-7 overall and 2-6 in the SEC, with its offense scoring 25.8 points per game, ranking the Tigers 83rd in the FBS.
