RB- Kerry Dixon (RB - Montana State)
TE- Jarred Allen (WR - FAU)
WR/RC- Jeff Sims (HC - Fort Scott Junior College)
OL- Luke Meadows (South Dakota State)
DL/ST- Brett Diersen (DE - Indiana)
LB- Jovan Dewitt (DC/LB - Northern Iowa)

Just read that South Dakota State OC/Associate HC will join the Owls as OL coach.

I like that a lot of the coaches that have joined the staff have been coordinators at other places.  That that leaves WR and special teams to be filled?  I wonder if Allen stays does he go back to coaching WRs?  Wright has coached WRs in the past…perhaps he'll coach the WRs and Allen would coach QBs?

Wow - awesome get for OL, Carl has seen this guy's work up close when the Jackrabbitts put a scare on NU in Lincoln.

This is a pretty good staff shaping up.  The lightest guy is db coach moving from a GA role at NU.  But then you realize all the help he will get from Sanders - who is a terrific Secondary coach.

Kudos to Carl on the hires so far!

Special teams coach? Is CP taking that role?

Good question.

It does bother me that CP is taking on a number of guys in key positions who have limited experience at the Div.1 level but realistically we don't have high salaries to pay these guys. Furthermore, I think CP has a soft spot for these young guys who are passionate about moving up and becoming head coaches one day, especially since he waited so long for the opportunity himself. I'm also speculating that CP liked Jared Allen's optimism, ambition and history with the program and realized he could potentially torpedo Allen's career by handing him a pink slip with the rest of the guys.

Technically, FCS schools are Division I.  Some of the better FCS schools will play with or beat Sunbelt caliber schools so there isn't as much of a disparity as you would think.

Looks like a winning group to me…

I would prefer more experience at DB, since that has been an achilles heel for us at times, but have to give Ross his shot at leading the pack.

More interested in seeing if we play 10 yards off the ball in the new scheme!

;D

It's amazing to see how positive we all have become in just a few weeks.  With a list like this above, and of the recruits you can't help but to be excited about all the change!  I hope the team and the staff shares our optimism and that it carries into the Spring and Summer, then into the Fall.
