Rainbow Warrior football head coach Nick Rolovich had to fill in the holes in his coaching staff this offseason, and he didn’t waste any time in doing so.
Rolovich announced the hires of three new coaches: Mark Weber as offensive line coach, Ricky Logo as defensive line coach and Andre Allen as wide receivers coach, according to a press release.
Together, the trio brings 85 years of coaching experience to the Warriors program.
“We’d like to welcome our final three coaches – Mark Weber, Ricky Logo, and Andre Allen – that completes our 2018 coaching staff,” Rolovich said. “During this hiring process, what I didn’t plan on getting was this amount of experience from these five new coaches. An added bonus is they bring a familiarity of the Mountain West. But no doubt in my mind what’s most important is we’re fortunate to bring in five men who have great values; love the game of football; and have a desire to mold great men on and off the football field.”
The new additions join newly-appointed defensive coordinator Corey Batoon and assistant head coach/linebackers coach Mark Banker to Rolovich’s staff, which is now comprised of 10 assistant coaches.
Remaining on staff are associate head coach/offensive coordinator Brian Smith, passing game coordinator/quarterbacks coach Craig Stutzmann, special teams coordinator Mayur Chaudhari, cornerbacks coach Abe Elimimian and safeties coach Jacob Yoro.
Weber has 36 years of collegiate coaching experience, including four stops at Mountain West schools – Fresno State (2004-05, ’16), Utah State (2013-15), UNLV (1994-96) and Nevada (1993).
He also has Pac-12 experience with UCLA (1997-2003) and Oregon State (1987-90). He has mentored a number of All-Americans and all-conference linemen who went on to play in the NFL, including Logan Mankins at Fresno State and 1998 Outland Trophy winner and All-American Kris Farris at UCLA.
Logo spent the past three years at Colorado State as defensive line coach, helping lead the Rams to three bowl appearances. Before coaching the Rams defensive line, Logo coached a pair of NFL All-Pro linemen – Osi Umenyiora of the New York Giants and Demarcus Ware of the Dallas Cowboys – at Troy.
Allen has coached the wide receivers at City College of San Francisco since 1991 and has mentored every Top 10 receiver in the program’s history including leading receiver Easop Winston.
