Last week, Pitt co-offensive coordinator Calvin Magee, secondary coach Tony Gibson, and tight end coach Tony Dews joined Rodriguez in Tucson. This time, it's Indiana co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Rod Smith, who played for Rodriguez at Glenville and coached with him at Clemson, West Virginia, and Michigan. The gang's getting back together.
Smith will have the same job title in Arizona.
Here's Wilson on losing Smith:
We appreciate Rod's efforts with us this season," Wilson said. "We're sorry to see him leave and wish him and his family the very best. Rod has a long-standing relationship with Coach Rodriguez and we understand his decision."As we move forward, we'll take our time to find the fit for our coaching staff that will keep our program headed in a positive direction."
