Former Ole Miss and East Mississippi Community College football star Bo Wallace is heading into his first season as offensive coordinator for Coahoma Community College.

At East Mississippi in 2011, Wallace broke a NJCAA passing touchdown record when he threw for 4,604 yards and 53 touchdowns. He led the team to a perfect 12-0 season and a national championship.

In 2012, Wallace transferred to Ole Miss where he became a three-year starter, throwing for a total of 9,534 yards and 62 touchdowns in his years as a Rebel. Wallace is remembered for leading the Rebels to victory over undefeated Alabama in 2014 when Ole Miss won 23-17.

In 2017, Wallace joined EMCC staff as the quarterbacks coach, and they won the national championship that year.

Coahoma CC has struggled in recent years, but Wallace has the chance to coach former Vicksburg High quarterback Joe Johnson Jr. who has a great reputation for leading a team.

The offensive coordinator position will be the highest position Wallace has ever held on the college level and many fans are waiting to see how effective his playing experience will be to help him run an offense.
