South Alabama hires Kenny Edenfield as offensive coordinator

MOBILE, Ala. -- South Alabama has hired Kenny Edenfield from rival Troy as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Jaguars coach Steve Campbell announced the hiring on Monday. Edenfield had spent the past 10 years at Troy, serving as offensive coordinator since 2010. Campbell and Edenfield were teammates on Troy's 1987 team that won the Division II national title.

Edenfield helped Troy to bowl wins in each to the past two years and the Trojans won at least a share of four Sun Belt Conference titles during his tenure.

Troy offenses finished among the top 20 nationally four times. Edenfield was Division II North Alabama's offensive coordinator from 2002-07, with previous stops as an assistant at Tulsa and Nicholls State.

He spent two seasons as head coach as Southwest Mississippi Community College.
