News on CMU Assistants
Butch Jones is working to put together his staff at Cincinnati and sources close to Jones and the Central Michigan program have confirmed that many of the current CMU assistants are expected to head to Cincinnati following the GMAC Bowl on Wednesday.
Both coordinators, Mike Bajakian and Tim Banks will be going to Cincinnati, as will interim head coach, Steve Stripling.
Offensive line coach Don Mahonay, linebackers coach Tim Elder, and strength and conditioning coach Dave Lawson will also be joining Jones in Cincinnati, as will many of the graduate assistants, including Tony Pape and Ryan Oshnock.
Those not heading to Cincinnati include running backs coach Jeff Beckles, tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator Max Glowacki, special teams coordinator and defensive tackles coach Paul Volero, and director of football operations Plas Presnell. It is unknown at this time if these coaches will be part of the new coaching staff, but will likely at least get interviews with the new coach.
