Wyoming Set To Hire Robin Ross As LB Coach

via seattletimes.nwsource.com

The Wyoming connections to the State of Washington are growing even larger. With the departure of Marty English the Cowboys had an opening for another coach on the defensive side. Eric Schmoldt of the Casper Tribune says the Pokes have found their man in Robin Ross and that he will coach the linebackers. Ross most recently served as the linebacker coach and recruiting coordinator for UNLV. Prior to that he coached tight ends at Oregon State.

Ross is most notably known as the final head coach of the Division 2 Western Washington Vikings. The school is located in Bellingham, WA and disbanded their football program back in 2009. Coach Christensen graduated from Western back in the 1985 and Bellingham is also the hometown of offensive line coach Pete Kalagis. Kalagis also
was an assistant coach at WWU for four years but not as the same time as Ross was there. I live in Bellingham so I am very familiar with Coach Ross and the Western program. He is a very solid guy and he was very upset when the school canceled the football program due to budget issues.

I certainly like the fact the served as the recruiting coordinator at UNLV as well. You can never have enough connections when it comes to recruiting. I think the Cowboys have Washington recruiting locked down now.

We're still a few weeks away from spring football starting. At least the coaching staff is now complete. Wyoming is still looking for one final member of the 2012 recruiting class. Perhaps Ross has connections with a player that would fill that spot.
