TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State head football coach Jimbo Fisher has completed his coaching staff.

Fisher announced his hires of Billy Napier as the Seminoles tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator while Randy Sanders will coach running backs.

Sanders comes to Florida State from Kentucky where he served as the Wildcats' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach since 2009. Napier spent last season as Colorado State's quarterbacks coach.

Fisher, who lost five assistants after the completion of the 2012 season, also said offensive coordinator James Coley will now serve as his quarterbacks coach.

The school formally confirmed Thursday that offensive tackle Menelik Watson was leaving after his junior season to enter the NFL draft. Another junior, All American defensive end Bjoern Werner, is also giving up his final season of eligibility to turn pro.
