The Scoop

Thursday: Coaches Quick Hits

Let us know what you are starting to hear.

Louisiana Swashbucklers: Our sources tell us that offensive line coach Dwight Hudler has resigned.

Akron: With the Zips down a running backs coach, we hear 2 assistant coaches are working together to prepare the running backs. Our source tells us that the offensive grad assistant has not been elevated to the role of coaching the running backs. We hear that head coach JD Brookhart will move very quickly to name another assistant coach. With offensive coordinator Shane Montgomery coming from Miami (OH), one would think perhaps a former Miami (OH) coach that is familar with the offense could be in line. That doesn't seem likely as the 2008 Miami (OH) running backs coach Jay Graham is now with Spurrier at South Carolina. The wide receivers coach Brian Von Bergen is now with Montana State. The other running backs coach that worked under Montgomery at Miami (OH) is DeAndre Smith, who now serves on the staff at UNLV. It will be interesting to see if JD Brookhart lures a former Akron Zip back to the coaching staff.
