Former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jarrett Boykin has taken the position of wide receivers coach with Texas A&M according to Chris Hummer of 24/7 Sports. Boykin, who spent three seasons with the Packers from 2012-2014, has turned to coaching after his football playing career ended in 2017.
Jarrett Boykin with the Green Bay Packers
The Jacksonville Jaguars originally signed Boykin as an undrafted free agent in 2012. However, he did not survive their early spring mini camps and was cut in May of that year. However, the Green Bay Packers signed him and he was retained on their practice squad. Boykin appeared in 10 games for the Packers in 2012, catching five passes on six targets.
2013, Boykin’s second with the Packers, was by far his best NFL season. He played in all 16 games for the Packers, starting eight of them. Boykin caught 49 passes for 681 yards and three touchdowns. The Packers went 8-7-1 that year, a season in which Aaron Rodgers was limited to nine games due to injury. Boykin finished third on the team in receiving yards behind Jordy Nelson and James Jones. Wide receiver Randall Cobb and tight end JerMichael Finley were both limited to just six games due to injuries.
Boykin’s final season with the Packers was in 2014. That season, he saw his role diminish in the offense as the team got healthier. Both Nelson (1,519) and Cobb (1,287) had over 1,000 yard receiving and the Packers had rookie Davante Adams take over as the team’s number three receiver. Boykin had just three receptions for 23 yards that year.
Jarrett Boykin After the Packers
Following his three seasons with the Packers, Boykin spent time with the practice squads of the Carolina Panthers and Buffalo Bills. He also spent 2016-2017 playing for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League.
In 2019, Boykin joined the coaching staff of the University of North Carolina in Charlotte as their quality control coach. The next season, Boykin was hired to be the wide receivers coach at Wingate University, a Division II program in North Carolina. He remained there for two seasons before spending the 2022 season as the wide receivers coach at Murray State.
