EMORY, Va. – Emory & Henry College Assistant Football Coach Timmy Chang has resigned to assume a position on the coaching staff at the University of Nevada. The Wolf Pack will officially announce later this week that Chang is joining Head Coach Jay Norvell's staff and will lead the team's interior wide receivers.

Chang served the E&H football staff during the 2016 season as its offensive coordinator, continuing the Wasps' up-tempo "spread-and-shred"offense conceived by fellow University of Hawai'i graduate Craig Stutzmann in 2014.

Emory & Henry scored over 30 points in seven of its 10 games this fall and hit the 400-yard mark in total offense on seven different occasions, going above 500 yards four times. The Wasps' offense found the end zone 42 times on the season, evenly split, 21-21, between passing and rushing.

"Although, my family and I are excited for this new opportunity, we are sad to leave such a special place with some great people," commented Chang. "I'd like to thank Curt Newsome, my brothers on staff, the players and the community for welcoming Sherry, Audri-Lee, Lion, London and myself with open arms. In such a short amount of time, this place has felt like home and will always have a special place in our hearts. We have made some great connections with a lot of people and hope to keep all of them. We are very excited about the future of Emory & Henry football and will be rooting for you all wherever we may go."

While at Emory & Henry, Chang coached the offense to an average of 33 points and 463 yards of offense per game. On the efforts of a three offensive All-ODAC honorees, the Wasps finished 2016 on a five-game winning streak for a 6-4 record and a 5-2 mark in the ODAC which tied for second place.
