UMaine Promotes Two Coaches

In a story that the CMSB broke back in March, UMaine head football coach Jack Cosgrove announced changes to his coaching staff today. Joe Rossi and Kevin Cahill both received promotions.

Rossi will move up to the defensive coordinator/linebackers coach. Rossi takes over for Robb Smith, who now coaches at Rutgers. Rossi has been with Maine for the past two years, coaching the defensive backs/special teams. Before coaching in Orono, Rossi spent six years at Thiel College, in PA. He was the defensive coordinator there for four of those six seasons.

Cahill will take over special teams duties, while still overseeing the runningbacks. This will be Cahill's second year in Orono. He coached at Murray State before heading to Maine.

No word yet on who will coach the defensive backs.
