FOOTBALL: A former NFL linebacker and a strength and conditioning coach with 16 seasons of experience on the collegiate level complete the coaching staff of University at Buffalo football coach Jim Hofher.
Antonio Goss, an eight-year veteran who was part of two San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl teams, will coach the linebackers. He served as captain of the Niners' special teams. Goss played one season with the St. Louis Rams as well. He comes to UB from North Carolina Central University in Durham, N.C., where he coached linebackers and special teams. Goss's first coaching positions were at East Chapel Hill, N.C., High for two years.
Also joining Hofher's staff is Jim Peal, who was the head strength coach at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C., for 12 years. Prior to that he worked at Evansville, Tennessee and Kansas State as a graduate assistant or assistant strength coach. Peal, a native of Shadyside, Ohio, is a graduate of Miami University and earned a masters degree at Tennessee.
