Like former Mississippi State running back Nick Griffin, it seems that former Mississippi State offensive lineman Rufus Warren is now an assistant coach for high school football. Warren is now an assistant coach at New Hope High School in Columbus, Mississippi.

Warren played was at Mississippi State from 2011 to 2015, redshirting during the 2011 season. He initially came to Starkville at 6’7” and 250 pounds set to be a tight end for the Bulldogs. However, as time wore on, he and the coaching staff decided that it was best that he bulk up and move to offensive line, where he wound up becoming a starter and that’s where he played his entire senior season.
Hat tip to Robby Donoho who revealed this wonderful nugget of information while he was preparing for the high school football season in a couple of weeks. Good luck with your endeavors, Rufus!
