USC Football: Ted Gilmore Will Become USC's Next Wide Receiver Coach

Ted Gilmore, formerly the wide receivers and assistant coach at Nebraska University, will now work in Los Angeles as he has been tabbed as the wide receiver coach at USC, according to Tom Dienhart of Rivals.com.

Gilmore will replace John Morton, who left the coaching spot vacant after accepting the wide receivers coaching spot on the 49ers by new coach Jim Harbaugh.   Morton had previously spent the last four years coaching at the position at USC.

Gilmore spent the last six years with Nebraska after being hired by then coach Bill Callahan in 2005.  He was essential in the passing game after being hired as Nebraska's wide receivers coach as the passing game was ranked 23rd in 2006, 7th in 2007, and 15th in 2008 in yards per game.

After Bo Polini was hired in 2008 to replace Callahan, Gilmore retained his spot and kept his position as wide receivers coach and also adding promoted roles as the recruiting coordinator for the Huskers as well as an assistant coach.

Gilmore is a Wisconsin alum where he played wide receiver in 1988 for two years after transferring from Butler Community College.
