MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis assistant coaches Galen Scott, Darrell Dickey and Brad Cornelsen have received promotions.

Scott is Memphis’ new defensive coordinator and also will continue coaching the Tigers’ linebackers. Dickey has been elevated to assistant head coach, though he also will continue working as co-offensive coordinator and running backs coach. Cornelsen will assume the role of co-offensive coordinator while continuing to coach Memphis’ quarterbacks.

Tigers coach Justin Fuente announced their new responsibilities Tuesday in a university release.

Scott replaces Barry Odom, who served as Memphis’ defensive coordinator this past season before leaving for the same position at Missouri.

Memphis went 10-3 in 2014 and beat BYU in the Miami Beach Bowl. The Cougars won a share of the American Athletic Conference, their first league title since 1971.
