Prince, Cohen named coordinators at Rutgers
[dropcap]R[/dropcap]utgers head coach Kyle Flood has completed his staff.
On Monday, Flood named Ron Prince offensive coordinator and Dave Cohen defensive coordinator. Flood also announced Norries Wilson has gained the title of assistant head coach and Anthony Campanile has been promoted to a full-time offensive assistant.
Prince comes to Rutgers after spending the last three years in the NFL, while Cohen is being promoted after spending 2012 as the Scarlet Knight’s linebackers coach.
Prince replaces Dave Brock, who left after one year as offensive coordinator to become the head coach at Delaware.
Prince, who was head coach at Kansas State from 2006-08, was offensive line coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season. He held the same role with the Indianapolis Colts in 2010-11.
He last served as an offensive coordinator at Virginia from 2003-05 after working as the offensive line coach in Charlottesville for the two seasons prior.
Cohen spent last season as linebackers coach. He previously served as defensive coordinator at both Delaware and Hofstra, and replaces Robb Smith, who left earlier this month to become the linebackers coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Wilson was promoted after being hired as Rutgers’ running backs coach last season. He was as head coach at Columbia from 2006-11, and coached at Connecticut before that (1999-2005), working with the offensive line for three seasons before being promoted to offensive coordinator. As a player, Wilson was a captain and two-year starter at Minnesota.
Campanile moves up the ladder after joining the staff in the summer of 2012 as a defensive assistant. The former Scarlet Knight safety and linebacker (2001-04) previously was the offensive coordinator at Don Bosco Prep in Ramsey, N.J., leading the Ironmen to NJSIAA Group IV State Championships in 2010 and 2011.
Flood added Darrell Wilson to his staff as the secondary coach last week, filling a vacancy that was also created by Smith’s departure. Wilson spent the past 11 years as an assistant at Iowa.
