After the recent departure of Tom Manning, the Bearcats announced the hiring of Virginia Tech passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach Brad Glenn as the new offensive coordinator.
Glenn previously worked with head coach Scott Satterfield at Appalachian State from 2005-2011, followed by stints with Georgia State and West Carolina before joining Virginia Tech a year ago.
Satterfield decided to hire Glenn to replace Manning, who was entering his first season at Cincinnati but accepted an offer to become the Indianapolis Colts tight ends coach last month.
In addition to taking over as offensive coordinator, Glenn is expected to serve as the wide receivers coach. Josh Stepp was originally hired to coach receivers but will move to tight ends instead.
Cincinnati Football: Breaking down the Bearcats hire of offensive coordinator Brad Glenn
A pair of defensive assistant coaches Greg Gasparato and Derek Nicholson left the program last month but Satterfield filled out the staff with additions of Nate Fuqua and Cort Braswell.
Fuqua was recently brought on as the newest co-defensive coordinator and outside linebackers coach, while Braswell is set to take over as the inside linebackers coach moving forward.
Make sure to stay tuned for the most recent coaching staff news as the Bearcats continue to prepare for the inaugural Big 12 season with spring practice scheduled to start this week!
In a recent press release, Satterfield discussed the decision to hire Glenn via Cincinnati Athletics.
"“I have known Brad Glenn for nearly 30 years and he is one of the top football minds in the business. Brad 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. Brad is a relentless recruiter and a proven winner. I’m excited to welcome he and his family to Cincinnati.”"
