Paganetti.

Defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon will be joined by defensive line coach Tracy Rocker, linebackers coach Nick Rallis, defensive backs coach Dennard Wilson, assistant defensive backs coach Jay Valai, and defensive quality control coach Joe Kasper. Jeremiah Washburn remains on hand with the title of director of player personnel/senior defensive assistant.

Special teams coordinator Michael Clay, assistant special teams coach Joe Pannunzio, special teams quality control coach Tyler Brown, coaches assistant Tyler Scudder, vice president of player performance Ted Rath, and head strength and conditioning coach Fernando Noriega round out the day’s announcements.
