Villanova Football has filled out their coaching staff

Mark Ferrante has replaced his departed coaches

Happy Thursday, ‘Nova Nation! Another late night, and not of the fun sort, so I’ll just keep this quick today. Mark Ferrante quietly filled out his staff after some high-profile departures by hiring new faces and moving some existing around within the staff.

I’m planning to dig into the backgrounds of these guys a bit more early next week once my life settles down, but check out the new guys for yourselves in the meantime.

  • Brian Jones (Running Backs)
  • Ross Pennypacker (Defensive Line)
  • Sean Devine (Offensive Line)
  • Brian Tracz (Strength & Conditioning)

And now, the "news."
