  1. This is old news but I had missed it. Man this guy has been some places! Anyway good luck to Coach Cosh at Richmond. It will be interesting to see how his defense fares. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND, Va. – Nick Saban, Lou Holtz, Bill Snyder, Ralph Friedgen and now Danny Rocco. Those are the head coaches that Chris Cosh, the new defensive coordinator of the University of Richmond football team has worked under during his expansive coaching career. Rocco named Cosh to his staff on Thursday afternoon, the day after locking up 15 new signees for the Spiders on National Signing Day. “We are all very excited to announce the hiring of Chris Cosh as our defensive coordinator and secondary coach,” Rocco said. “Chris has earned an outstanding reputation as a top level defensive coordinator and recruiter throughout his career. I have followed his career path and have great respect for his accomplishments and experiences. We feel fortunate to be able to welcome Chris and his family to the University of Richmond.” Cosh comes to Richmond with a wealth of knowledge, serving as a defensive coordinator for 17 of his 31 seasons in coaching, including time at South Carolina, Kansas State, Maryland, South Carolina, Michigan State and Illinois. He has served as a defensive coordinator in five of the six BCS conferences (Big Ten, SEC, ACC, Big 12 and Big East) Last season, he was the defensive coordinator at North Texas after spending the 2013 and 2014 at the University of Buffalo and 2012 at the University of South Florida. From 2009-11, Cosh was the defensive coordinator at Kansas State, where he helped rebuild the Wildcat defense culminating with a Cotton Bowl appearance in 2011. During his time in Manhattan, his defense ranked in the top-40 in the country twice, had six All-Big 12 performers, including Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year Arthur Brown and two All-Americans. Prior to his time at Kansas State, he served as the defensive coordinator at Maryland for three seasons, twice ranking in the top-40 defensively. He tutored six All-ACC performers, including Dre Moore, who was a fourth-round draft choice in the 2008 NFL Draft, and Josh Wilson, who was taken in the second round in the 2007 NFL Draft. Prior to his stint at Maryland, Cosh made his first stop at Kansas State for two seasons, 2004-05, under head coach Bill Snyder as linebackers coach. The Wildcat defense ranked 30th nationally in 2005. Junior linebacker Brandon Archer was an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection in 2005, an accolade which came a year after Cosh helped coach the newcomer to second-team honors in his first year as a starter. In the five years prior to his first stop in Manhattan, Cosh served under Lou Holtz as linebackers coach (1999-2002) and defensive coordinator (2003) at South Carolina. While at South Carolina, he helped produce some of the Southeastern Conference's top linebackers, including Kalimba Edwards (two-time first team all-league, Butkus and Lombardi Awards finalist in 2001). His resume as a position coach also includes tutoring New York Jets' first-round pick and Pro Bowler John Abraham (1999) and freshman All-American Lance Laury (2002). During his time in Columbia, S.C., the Gamecocks won back-to-back bowl games for the first time in school history. In addition to serving under coaching legends Snyder and Holtz, Cosh was the defensive coordinator at Michigan State under current Alabama head coach Nick Saban. In his lone season (1998) in East Lansing, Mich., the Spartans upset No. 1 Ohio State and knocked off Notre Dame. Cosh's unit helped spark those wins with the 10th-ranked pass defense in the nation. A former linebacker who earned his bachelor's degree in physical education from Virginia Tech in 1984, Cosh got his start coaching in Blacksburg, Va., where he was a student assistant during the 1983 season. He then made five different stops (Wisconsin-Oshkosh, Southeast Missouri State, UNLV and two tours at Minnesota) before settling in at Illinois. Cosh and his wife, Mary, have two sons, J.J., who played football at the United States Naval Academy, and Billy, who just completed his playing career as a quarterback at Houston.

  3. DENTON — The temperature pushed up toward 100 degrees at Apogee Stadium this spring as Chris Cosh bounced around from drill to drill, watching the members of North Texas’ defense sweat through another workout. Cosh barked instructions while laying out the basic principles of his defense, clearly in his element heading into his first season as UNT’s defensive coordinator. “Coach Cosh is a character and is tough on you, but we need it,” UNT linebacker Fred Scott said. “He pushes us and knows what he’s doing. He’s been a lot of places and knows what he’s talking about.” The journey includes stops at Kansas State, Michigan State and Maryland with several twists and turns mixed in — perhaps none more intriguing than how a degenerative neck injury ushered Cosh into coaching in 1983. Back then, Cosh didn’t go by “coach.” He was known as “Crash,” a hard-hitting linebacker for Virginia Tech. Former Hokies assistant coach Lou Tepper still remembers Cosh taking on an Alabama tackle who towered over him. “Chris knocked him to his knees,” Tepper said. Eventually, all those hits added up and forced Cosh into coaching before his senior season. “I didn’t take to it right away,” Cosh said. “I was coaching the same guys I was playing with and didn’t see myself in that role. That fall we had some young linebackers that I worked with who ended up starting by the second game of the season because some other players got hurt. I took pride in that. “It’s what really got me going.” Read more: http://www.dallasnews.com/sports/college-sports/unt-mean-green/20150828-new-unt-defensive-coordinator-brings-needed-crash-to-mean-green.ece
  4. University at Buffalo defensive line coach Chris Cosh is confident the Bulls defense is going to be all right, even though it has struggled over the first three weeks of the season. Were going to be good, Cosh said as UB prepared for Saturdays game against Norfolk State. The kids are responding. As long as we keep working together and get better at the little things, we will be right on track. The little things is a coaching platitude. Yet, in his 30-year coaching career, Cosh has seen it produce results too many times to doubt its importance. Cosh, hired this year by UB coach Jeff Quinn, counts UBs venerable defensive coordinator Lou Tepper, Kansas State legend Bill Snyder and College Football Hall-of-Famer Lou Holtz among his coaching mentors. Cosh earned the nickname Crash while playing linebacker for Tepper at Virginia Tech from 1978 to 81. (Tepper still calls him Crash on occasion.) Tepper helped talk Cosh into the coaching profession, then hired him for a five-year stint at Illinois in the 1990s, when Tepper was head coach of the Illini. Honestly, hes like a second son to me, Tepper said. So personally, its such a joy to have him here. He adds so much to our game-planning, and I dont mean there arent others that do, too. But Chris has a rich background as a coordinator. He brings a lot. Read more: http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/ub-football/ub-defensive-line-coach-cosh-puts-fun-into-fundamentals-20140918
  5. DENTON – North Texas head football coach Dan McCarney has announced the hiring of Chris Cosh as defensive coordinator. Cosh comes to North Texas with a wealth of experience having served as a defensive coordinator for 16 of his 30 seasons in coaching, including time at Kansas State, Maryland, South Carolina, Michigan State and Illinois. Cosh spent the 2014 season as the defensive line coach at the University of Buffalo. He will replace John Skladany who retired at the end of the season. “Chris has a tremendous blend of experience and success and comes highly recommended by some of the most respected football coaches at both the collegiate and professional levels,” McCarney said. “He has a proven track record as a coordinator and linebacker coach in the Big 10 Conference, the SEC and the Big 12 and his reputation as a tireless recruiter precedes him. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Chris to the Mean Green family.” Cosh, 55, was the defensive coordinator at South Florida in 2012 and in his one season in Tampa he helped produce two All-Big East defenders. From 2009-11, Cosh was the defensive coordinator at Kansas State, where he helped rebuild the Wildcat defense culminating with a Cotton Bowl appearance in 2011. The Wildcats defense was ranked 37th in the nation in 2011 and produced three All-Big 12 performers, including Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year Arthur Brown. The Wildcats finished the season with a 10-3 record. In 2010 Cosh guided the Wildcat defense and saw true freshman Ty Zimmerman earn freshman All-America honors after recording 74 tackles, three interceptions, three PBUs and two fumble recoveries. In 2009 under Cosh, K-State’s defense made tremendous strides, from 117th nationally in total defense in 2008 to No. 39 in 2009. The 2009 Wildcat defense yielded just 105.4 yards per game on the ground, which ranked 16th nationally, and surrendered 339.9 total yards per contest. As defensive coordinator at Maryland, the Terrapins (7-5) ended the 2008 regular season 35th nationally in scoring defense (21.4 ppg) and were led by All-ACC performers Alex Wujciak at linebacker and Jeremy Navarre on the defensive line. In 2007, the Terrapin defense was highlighted by first-team All-ACC performers Erin Henderson and Dre Moore. Henderson led the league in tackles from his weakside linebacker spot, while Moore, a defensive tackle, went on to become a fourth-round draft choice of Tampa Bay in the 2008 NFL Draft.. Cosh’s defense ended the year at No. 24 nationally in scoring defense (21.5 ppg) and No. 33 in pass defense. In 2006, Cosh was responsible for a unit that contributed to the school’s first nine-win season since 2003 and a victory in the Champs Sports Bowl. The Terps defense held the opposition to an average of 21.8 points per game. Under Cosh’s leadership, the defense marked breakout performances by cornerback Josh Wilson and Henderson, who each earned All-ACC honors. Wilson went on to become a second-round choice of the Seattle Seahawks in the 2007 NFL Draft. Prior to his stint at Maryland, Cosh made his first stop at Kansas State for two seasons, 2004-05, under head coach Bill Snyder as linebackers coach. The Wildcat defense ranked 30th nationally in 2005 allowing an average of 128.9 rushing yards per game. Junior linebacker Brandon Archer was an honorable mention All-Big 12 selection in 2005, an accolade which came a year after Cosh helped coach the newcomer to second-team honors in his first year as a starter. In the five years prior to his first stop in Manhattan, Cosh served under Lou Holtz as linebackers coach (1999-2002) and defensive coordinator (2003) at South Carolina. While at South Carolina, he helped produce some of the Southeastern Conference’s top linebackers, including Kalimba Edwards (two-time first team all-league, Butkus and Lombardi Awards finalist in 2001).
