Tight Ends

Bryan Stork now enters his third campaign as the tight ends coach. Stork was announced to the staff on March 18, 2019, prior to the 2019 campaign.

The spring 2021 season featured a pair of tight ends for the Bucs in Nate Adkins and Noah West. Adkins, an established SoCon competitor, finished the season with 10 receptions for 101 yards. Meanwhile, West tallied 87 yards on eight receptions.

In his first season (2019) with the Bucs, Stork’s crew accounted for 30 receptions, including 25 from then-sophomore tight end Adkins. Under Stork’s direction, Adkins finished second on the team in receptions (25), receiving touchdowns (2) and fourth in receiving yards with 241. Adkins was responsible for the first receiving touchdown of the season at Appalachian State. Adkins was also named to the 2019 Coaches All-SoCon team under the guidance of Stork.

In just two seasons, Stork has coached three All-SoCon recipients.

Stork comes to Johnson City, Tenn. after having served as a graduate assistant with the Southern Miss football team, working with the Golden Eagles’ offensive line.

Stork was a standout center with the Florida State Seminoles from 2009-2013, proving to be an instrumental piece in FSU’s national title in 2013 as the starting center. Stork was recruited as a two-star tight end in 2009, eventually transforming into a top-end lineman for Florida State. Stork won the Rimington Trophy in 2013, an award that goes out to the nation’s top center.

Stork was then selected by the New England Patriots in the fourth round of the NFL Draft in 2014, winning a Super Bowl with the Patriots in his rookie season. Stork retired from playing professional football in 2017 for personal reasons.
