Ogden, UT (Sports Network) - Weber State football coach Jody Sears announced
the hiring of former University of Montana football coach Robin Pflugrad as
offensive coordinator and promoted two assistant coaches on Thursday.
Pflugrad was the head coach at Montana for two seasons before he was fired
last March in the wake of alleged sexual assaults involving football players.
The national FCS power Grizzlies had an 18-7 record under Pflugrad, including
a national semifinal finish in 2011, when he was named the Big Sky coach of
Sears also named Steve Morton as the associate head coach and Eric Lewis as
defensive coordinator. Morton was the offensive line coach and Lewis guided
the defensive backs on Weber State's 2-9 squad this past season.
"I'm very excited for these coaching staff announcements and the direction our
football program is headed," Sears said.
