BG Football Coaching Change in Defensive Secondary

BG had one vacancy on the defensive staff.  LaMarcus Hicks--who coached the secondary--had left the program and is now at EMU.  Hicks was the last hold-over from the Jinks staff...and he was part of the Pelini hiring to re-tool for the last season.

The new coach is named Eric Lewis.  Yes, he coached at Boston College, but also plenty of other places over his 17 years, including 3 stops in the MAC.

2019: Boston College, Defensive Backs
2018: Colorado State, Cornerbacks
2017: Tennessee, Quality Control Assistant
2015-16: Georgia State, Secondary/Special Teams Coordinator
2014: Buffalo, Secondary
2012-13: Weber State, Defensive Coordinator
2009: Eastern Michigan, Defensive Coordinator
2008: Louisville, Cornerbacks
2006-07: Green Bay Packers, Defensive Quality Control
2003-05: Ball State, Safeties
2002: Bucknell, Defensive Backs
2001: Michigan State, Graduate Assistant

He will coach CBs.  Jacob Schoonover is coaching the safeties and special teams.

You might remember his Father, Sherman Lewis, who was the offensive coordinator for Green Bay, Minnesota and Detroit in the NFL and coached for 4 Super Bowl Champion teams.  His years at BG coincided with Brett Farve's time.

Boy of boy with that many moves, I'd buy stock in Allied Van Lines or at least leave a number of boxes unpacked.
