Gregg Brandon bolts amid Wyoming staff shuffle
[dropcap]G[/dropcap]regg Brandon is leaving Wyoming to become the offensive coordinator at New Mexico State.
The move comes two days after Cowboys head coach Dave Christensen brought in ex-Idaho coach Jason Gesser to coach Wyoming’s quarterbacks – a position Brandon held along with the offensive coordinator title.
Asked about Gesser’s hiring, Brandon told the Laramie Star-Tribue, “Coach Christensen made that decision. That’s a good question for him.”
Regardless of the answer, Brandon is gone and new Aggie head coach Doug Martin is excited.
“This is one of the top recruits we got this year,” Martin said in a release. “Gregg (Brandon) brings a wealth of experience that is hard to find at this level, while being one of only two people I trust to hand over the play calling for this offense.”
Brandon spent the past two seasons as Wyoming’s offensive coordinator.
Brandon was Bowling Green’s head coach from 2003-08, taking over when Urban Meyer left for Utah. He was fired following a disappointing 6-6 in 2008 that saw the Falcons only win one home game.
Brandon served as Al Groh’s offensive coordinator at Virginia in 2009-10.
