Football Interlude

I posted a while back that co-DC Joe Trainer had left BGSU (after not really being here) to be the head coach at Rhode Island.

The dominoes began to fall last week.

Mike Elko has been named the new DC, according to this story. There's nothing from our end yet, so it isn't clear if he will be the DC, or share the DC duties with Shannon Morrison, as Trainer was going to do.

Elko was preparing to be the DC at Tennessee-Chattanooga, where Russ Huesman is now the Head Coach. Huesman and Elko both worked for Clawson at Richmond, and Elko also worked with Clawson at Fordham.

FWIW, Huesman is not happy about it.

“I knew the defensive coordinator at Bowling Green left for Rhode Island, so I knew the job was open, but it is surprising in a couple of ways,” Huesman said Monday from Richmond, where he spent the weekend with his family. “It’s surprising that Dave Clawson would contact him, and it’s a little surprising that Mike left.”
