#StaffTracker: A one stop page where you can keep track of how the new head coaches are filling their staffs. NFL – FBS – FCS – D-II

Texas: Tom Herman is electing to sign a handful of his assistants to one-year deals…for a rather interesting reason.

Villanova (FCS – PA): Defensive backs coach Ola Adams has been promoted to defensive coordinator, per source.

Michigan Tech (D-II): Per source, co-defensive coordinator / special teams coach / defensive line coach Bryan Thomas has been promoted to defensive coordinator and will now coach the linebackers.

Ohio: Source tells FootballScoop that Ohio has hired Allen Rudolph, formerly of Arkansas State, as their new offensive line coach.

Practice Timing: Created by coaches for coaches, Practice Timing helps you create, store and time your practices. Practices are timed on coaches phones in our app with push notifications to remind coaches of transitions with notes and messaging. User interface is easy to use with a drag and drop feature, copies practices, stores all previous activities and practices. Never use paper or any other expensive, bulky, hard to see timers again! Check out Practice Timing via this link.

Northern Michigan (D-II): Source tells FootballScoop that Saginaw Valley State (D-II – MI) running backs coach Dan Fodrocy has accepted the offensive coordinator job at Northern Michigan.

Toledo: Kevin Beard, who previously coached the wide receivers at Tennessee  before joining the Toledo staff as director of player personnel and assistant recruiting coordinator last season, has been promoted to wide receivers coach and director of player development Nate Cole will now coach the running backs, per a tweet from Jordan Strack.

Princeton (FCS): Brian Flinn, who spent more than a decade at Villanova working with the receivers, has joined the staff as receivers coach and Mark Rosenbaum will transition to quarterbacks coach.
