Former Cal quarterback Troy Taylor is the new co-offensive coordinator at Eastern Washington, he confirmed over the weekend.
The 47-year-old Taylor, who also played for one year with the New York Jets, will also serve as quarterbacks coach for the Eagles.
After working as an assistant at Colorado and Cal, Taylor moved into the high school ranks. Since 2012, he has been the co-head coach at Folsom High School in Folsom, California.
“I’m excited, ready for a new challenge, and it seems like a unique fit,” Taylor told the Sacramento Bee.
Folsom went 58-3 since 2012 with four Sac-Joaquin Section championships and the CIF State Division I title in 2014.
In 1989, Taylor led the Pac-10 with 253 passing yards. He finished his college career as Cal’s all-time leading passer with 8,126 yards, a mark that was broken last year by Jared Goff.
