TOWSON, Md. — Justin Harper is moving up in college football and in responsibility as an assistant coach at Towson State.
The school has announced Harper — a former wide receiver at Bandys High who starred at Virginia Tech and played in the NFL with the Baltimore Ravens — will now coordinate the passing game at Towson State.
Harper was a seventh round draft pick by the Ravens in the 2008 NFL Draft. He spent nearly three seasons on Baltimore’s practice team and earned a spot on the active roster and played in two NFL games.
He also played for two teams in the Canadian Football League (CFL) and later coached as an assistant at Lenoir-Rhyne University and at Virginia State (was interim head coach at one point).
Towson State went 7-5 in 2019.
