Presbyterian College and Head Football Coach Tommy Spangler announced Tuesday the addition of former Blue Hose football player and 2015 graduate Tamyn Garrick as assistant coach. He will direct the quarterbacks.
“We are thrilled to have Tamyn (Garrick) back here at PC coaching our quarterbacks,” said Spangler. “No one knows Presbyterian College and this community better than him. He was an outstanding player at PC and will be an even better coach.”
Garrick comes to PC from The Citadel, where he spent the last two seasons in charge of quality control for the offense.
Garrick is a former quarterback at Presbyterian and was voted a team captain as a senior. He appeared in 19 games with 10 starts and finished his career 133-of-277 passing for 1,355 yards and five touchdowns. Off the field, he was a member of Presbyterian’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and represented PC at the 2014 Big South SAAC Leadership Conference.
Garrick finished PC sixth in the PC Division I era career record books in pass attempts (138), pass completions (70), passing yards (778) and pass TDs (2), average yards per completion (11.1), passing yards per game (77.8) and was ninth in total offensive yards (745).
“I’d like to thank Coach (Tommy) Spangler and the rest of the staff for giving me the amazing opportunity,” said Garrick. “It’s an honor to return to PC and work with this group of guys. I’m excited to get started on the 2018 season and looking forward to spring practice starting in just a couple of weeks.”
After graduating in 2015 with a degree in Mathematics, he was an assistant football and baseball coach and taught math at Barnwell High School.
