Linguist was a defensive backs coach and defensive passing game coordinator on Jeff Quinn’s UB staff in 2012 and 2013.

“For years my dream has been to play in the NBA, and it is time for me to turn those dreams into reality,” Mballa wrote in a post on his social media accounts.
The transfers follow news that several of UB’s football staff members will depart.
