While seven assistant coaches are recruiting on the mainland and two others are working the local circuit, the four graduate assistant coaches are preparing for the upcoming game.
John Estes, Mikahael Waters, Marc Moody and Makana Garrigan will be calling the plays for Thursday’s Scout Bowl,which involves redshirts and development players. This assignment is in addition to scouting, evaluating videos, aiding the assistant coaches, running the scout teams and, of course, attending classes.
All four have proven to be quality coaches. It will make for a tough decision in the spring, when the NCAA is permitting FBS teams to add a 10th full-time assistant coach.
