Cincinnati Football: Bearcats officially announce the addition of three assistant coaches

The Bearcats officially announced the addition of offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach Brad Glenn, outside linebackers coach Nate Fuqua, and inside linebackers coach Cortney Braswell.

Glenn spent last season as the passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Virginia Tech after previously working with head coach Scott Satterfield at Appalachian State from 2005-2011.

Satterfield decided to hire Glenn to replace former offensive coordinator Tom Manning, who was entering his first year before being named the Indianapolis Colts tight ends coach last month.

Fuqua was recently brought on as the newest co-defensive coordinator and outside linebackers coach, while Braswell is expected to take over as the inside linebackers coach moving forward.

After departures of a couple of defensive assistant coaches Greg Gasparato and Derek Nicholson in February, Satterfield was able to fill out the staff with the addition of Fuqua and Braswell.

Prior to beginning their first season at Cincinnati, Nicholson was hired as the Miami Hurricanes linebackers coach and Gasparato was named the Troy Trojans defensive coordinator last month.

In a recent press release, Satterfield broke down the Bearcats decision to hire three new assistants and explained what each coach will bring to the program via Cincinnati Athletics.

“Brad Glenn could coach any position but I believe his experience coordinating passing games makes him a perfect fit to coach wide receivers for us, in addition to his coordinator duties. I’m thrilled to welcome Nate Fuqua to our coaching staff. I’ve known Nate since his days as an All-American defensive tackle at Wofford. He wouldn’t be outworked then and he won’t be outworked now. Cortney Braswell is a rising star in the coaching profession and I’m excited to welcome him to our staff. He’s had tremendous success as a full-time coach at Army and Appalachian State. His background as a high school coach makes him one of the best relationship-builders I have been around and an elite recruiter.”
