Source: Clarence McKinney elevated
A week after making his debut as a playcaller in Texas A&M's 41-13 rout of Oklahoma in the AT&T Cotton Bowl, assistant coach Clarence McKinney has been given the chance to call plays for Heisman-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel next season.
McKinney, the Aggies' running backs coach, has been elevated to co-offensive coordinator and will be the team's primary playcaller moving forward, a source with knowledge of the hire told ESPN.com Friday. McKinney will help fill the void left by former offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury, who was named as Texas Tech's new coach in December.
