A source tells CoachingSearch that LA Tech linebackers coach Jeff Koonz is expected to join Tommy Tuberville's staff at Cincinnati.
Koonz got his under grad degree from Auburn and his Masters from Texas, and he has a pretty impressive C.V. for someone in his 20's.
- 2003 -- Auburn (Student Assistant)
- 2004 -- Auburn (Graduate Assistant)
- 2005-06 -- Texas (Graduate Assistant)
- 2007-08 -- Iowa State (Secondary)
- 2009 -- Texas (Quality Control)
- 2010-2013 -- Louisiana Tech (Linebackers)
So, in summation, he got his first break into coaching in Tuberville's Auburn program, and then went on to work for Gene Chizik, Will Muschamp and Sonny Dykes. Color me impressed with his apprenticeship. This will probably fan the flames of the Chizik crowd, though every indication is that Hank Hughes is still the only person to interview. One more spot on the coaching staff left to fill.
