“We are excited to be retaining our coaching staff,” Campbell said in a statement. “They are good teachers and even better people. The continuity allows us to grow and improve as a coaching staff and as a football team.”
Those returning include: offensive coordinator Jordan Maksymic, defensive coordinator Ryan Phillips, special teams coordinator Don Yanowsky, receivers coach Jason Tucker, offensive line coach Kelly Bates, running backs coach Trysten Dyce, linebackers coach Travis Brown, defensive line coach John Bowman and defensive assistant Tanya Henderson and video coordinator/special teams assistant Derek Oswalt.
