Taylor returns to his alma mater from Saginaw Valley State University (Mich.), where he served as wide receivers coach since 2016.  While at Saginaw Valley, he mentored freshman receiver Chad Gailliard to Honorable mention All-America, First Team All-Conference and Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Freshman-of-the-Year honors in 2017.  

Prior to joining Saginaw Valley, Taylor was the wide receivers coach at Widener University (Pa.). In 2015, the Widener offense was the conference leader in passing yards per game (316.0), while three earned all-conference recognition.

Taylor was running backs coach at Widener in 2012. That season, the Pride reached the NCAA Div. III national quarterfinals and ranked eighth in the country in the final season poll. The 2012 Widener squad was tops in its conference and fifth in the nation in total offense, while also ranking in the Top 10 in scoring and passing.   At the conclusion of the 2012 season, Taylor left Widener to become the wide receivers coach at Division II Seton Hill University (Pa.).

Taylor attended Howard High School in Wilmington, Del.  After high school he attended prep school at Hargrave Military Academy for one year. 

He then enrolled at Delaware State University (2003-2007) where he was a member of the Hornets’ 2007 MEAC Championship and first NCAA playoff team. 

Taylor graduated from Delaware State with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Management.
