Farrington expected to become VMI's defensive coordinator

Lexington, VA (Sports Network) - VMI is expected to name Jeff Farrington as the new defensive coordinator of its football program later this month.

Farrington became Mercer University's defensive coordinator last July as it builds a program that will debut in 2013. He followed head coach Bobby Lamb to Mercer from Furman University, where he was the defensive coordinator for nine seasons from 2002-10.

During that period, Furman made the NCAA I-AA (now FCS) playoffs four times, including an appearance in the 2005 national semifinals.

A graduate of The Citadel, Farrington also was a defensive coordinator at East Tennessee State (1997-2001), West Georgia (1992-96), Presbyterian (1991) and Lenoir-Rhyne (1987-90).

VMI finished 2-9 overall and 2-4 in the Big South Conference under fourth-year head coach Sparky Woods last season.
