William Peagler

Assistant Defensive Line


Peagler joined the Cardinals as assistant defensive line coach on 3/1/23 following 12 years coaching at the collegiate level, including last year as the tight ends coach at the University of Florida.

Peagler went to Florida after coaching running backs for two seasons (2020-21) at Michigan State and was selected as the 2021 FootballScoop Running Backs Coach of the Year for his work with MSU RB Kenneth Walker III, who was drafted by Seattle in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Walker III rushed for 1,636 yards and 18 TDs on 263 carries in 2021 and became the first Spartan to win the Doak Walker award, honoring the top running back in college football. Michigan State finished the 2021 regular season with a 10-2 record and played in the program's third New Year's Six Bowl game.
