 PITTSBURG — Pittsburg State University head football coach Tim Beck announced the recent hiring of Derrick Sherman as an assistant coach for the Gorillas.

 
Sherman, who will coach the Pitt State wide receivers, joins the Gorillas staff from Georgia Southern University where he served as an offensive graduate assistant coach in 2014.
 
He replaces former assistant Neal Philpot, who left the Pitt State staff to become the offensive coordinator at Ottawa University earlier this summer.
 
"We are fortunate to have Derrick Sherman join the Pitt State coaching staff," Beck said. "We reached out to several friends in the coaching profession to fill our open position, and Coach (Willie) Fritz and Coach (Doug) Ruse both spoke very highly of Derrick. What became obvious from their recommendations and interviewing Derrick is that he is very professional, knowledgable, respectful and energetic. We think he's a great addition to our staff."
 
Sherman spent the 2014 season coaching wide receivers at Georgia Southern, helping the Eagles to a 9-3 record.
 
Prior to his time at Georgia Southern, Sherman served as wide receivers coach at Southwest Baptist University in 2012 and West Virginia State University in 2013.
 
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Sherman played two seasons at Purdue University (2007-08), before finishing his collegiate career at Morgan State University (2009-11). He served as a team captain at MSU during his senior season.
 
Sherman earned a bachelor's degree in communications from Morgan State in May 2012 and he's completing a master's degree in higher education/administration from Georgia Southern.
