Cincinnati Football: Bearcats introduce new defensive coordinator Tyson Veidt
Cincinnati decided to hire Veidt because former defensive coordinator Bryan Brown accepted a job at his alma mater Ole Miss in recent weeks.
Iowa State was just the third team in conference history to be atop the Big 12 in passing, rushing, scoring and total defense in the 2022 campaign.
The Bearcats new defensive coordinator is set to return to his old stomping grounds during a matchup at Iowa State set for November 16.
Veidt is expected to run a 3-3-5 defense that will include three safeties and should put more of an emphasis on the secondary moving forward!
