This is also the first year they'll be able to have 10 coaches on field. I'll be curious to see how he uses that role.

It's unknown what his role will be. Side note: Smith worked under Venables at OU. I'm still hoping Chad can snag Venables to head up the D.

Morris has reportedly also filled two off-field positions. Mark Smith will be the recruiting coordinator and Randy Ross will presumably be the director of football operations, a title he held under Morris at SMU.

What are the duties of "Director of Football Operations"?  Never really understood that role?

Randy Ross is in his 11th year at SMU, where he serves as the Sr. Associate Director of Football Operations. In that role, Ross wears a number of hats. He coordinates team travel, office management and administration, handles gameday responsibilities and serves as a liaison with athletics and university departments.

Ross came to SMU after spending 17 seasons at Alabama, the last four as Director of Football Operations. He was an assistant coach from 1993-96 as well as Alabama's recruiting coordinator from 1990-98. He then spent one season in UA's development office before moving back to the football office in 2000 as the Director of High School Relations. He began his coaching career at Gaston (Ala.) High School before moving to Gadsden's Southside High School in 1976. He then served as Southside's head coach for nine seasons before moving on to coach at Scottsboro High from 1985-86. He moved on to Vanderbilt to tutor the quarterbacks as an assistant coach for three seasons before being lured to Alabama by Gene Stallings.

A graduate of St. Bernard, Ross is married to the former Ann Lowe.

He also has a TE coach on his staff at SMU.  Would assume he has one here as well and it is assumed Lunney is in the running for that spot.

There also will be a 10th assistant added after the first of the year.  In the 247 article he said he would either use that for someone on defense that will also have special teams duties or hire someone that focuses solely on special teams.

My understanding is that they coordinate everything that has to do with practices, games, recruiting, film... they basically run all the logistics of what it takes for football to operate.

 Of all the things you can say about "Smiley" he knew how to make special teams special...
