Gophers Announce Bowl Game Coaching Assignments


With offensive coordinator and linemen coach Matt Limegrover and quarterbacks coach Jim Zebrowski no longer with the staff, lots of people were questioning how the offensive staff would operate for the bowl game. Tracy Claeys has announced that tight end coach Rob Reeves will serve as offensive coordinator, offensive quality control Nate Griffin will coach tight ends, offensive graduate assistant Trevor Olson and special teams quality control Jay Nunez will coach the offensive line together, and offensive graduate assistant Adam Weber will coach the quarterbacks. Running backs coach Pat Poore will also begin working as co-special teams coordinator in the bowl game.

On the defensive side of the ball, defensive backs coach Jay Sawvel will serve as defensive coordinator.
