William and Mary football head coach Jimmye Laycock announced the hiring of Chris Barclay as an offensive assistant this afternoon. Barclay’s primary responsibilities will be to work with the running backs. He takes over the position immediately and has started to work with the team during spring drills. "Chris is an outstanding young coach," Laycock said. "He played and worked under [Wake Forest Head] coach (Jim) Grobe, whom I respect a great deal. I think he’ll be a great fit for our staff and program."
