Mel Tucker and the Michigan State coaching staff have officially filled its final vacant assistant coach position. On Saturday, MSU announced that Brandon T. Jordan has been added to the defensive staff as “pass rush specialist.”

The move was expected, as news broke of Tucker’s plan to hire Jordan earlier in the week. Jordan is expected to coach Michigan State’s defensive ends and pass rushers, while defensive line coach Ron Burton is expected to shift his sole focus to the defensive tackles.

This is a unique addition to the coaching staff, as Jordan doesn’t necessarily come to East Lansing from the traditional coaching route. While he does have college coaching experience, he has most recently focused on training athletes.

Jordan has spent the past few years working as CEO of his company, Brandon Jordan Trench Performance, as a defensive line and offensive line specialist. He has trained 195 players who are currently on active NFL rosters. He has also trained high school and college athletes.
