Maurice Linguist's football coaching staff at the University at Buffalo continues to come together.
UB is expected to hire Jeremy Cole as its strength and conditioning coach, which was originally reported by Yahoo! Sports, and confirmed by The News. Cole has been the assistant strength and conditioning coach at Minnesota since 2017. Linguist, the head coach at UB, was a defensive backs coach at Minnesota in 2017.
Cole would replace Matt Gildersleeve, who was UB's strength and conditioning coach for the last two seasons under former football coach Lance Leipold.
Linguist is piecing together his coaching staff in his first week as the Bulls' coach. He is also planning to hire Joe Cauthen as UB's defensive coordinator, and four UB assistants from Leipold's staff are currently listed in UB's athletic directory: tight ends coach/recruiting coordinator Rob Ianello, running backs coach Isaac Reed, defensive tackles coach George Ricumstrict and cornerbacks coach Jeff Burrow.
