Hightower to NFL

Posted by: under College football Updated: February 8, 2010 - 1:09 PM

Greetings:

 

Just a quick note to let you know that Richard Hightower, who resigned his position as wide receivers coach with the Gophers last week, was hired by the Washington Redskins as assistant special teams coach.

 

No word on Hightower's replacement on the Gophers staff.

 

 

Have a good afternoon
