Reggie McElroy, who was a volunteer assistant last year, will fill the open spot and will coach the defensive line

Eric Kruppe will move to coaching defensive backs and linebackers and serve as coordinator.
Joe Schuchardt will move to offense and coach quarterbacks and running backs, while continuing with special teams.
