Mark Weber, who has 37 years of coaching experience, will be the Warriors’ new offensive line coach, the Star-Advertiser learned last night.
The Warriors also hired Ricky Logo as defensive line coach and Andre Allen to coach the receivers. Logo spent the past three seasons at Colorado State. Allen was the offensive coordinator at City College of San Francisco, which has won 10 JC national titles, including six since 2000.
Here’s the skinny on Weber:
> Among his coaching stops were Fresno State (2016, 2004-2005), Utah State (2013-2015), BYU (2007-2012), North Carolina (2006) and UCLA (1997-2003).
> He has success in both the running game (Fresno averaged 227.5 rushing yards per game in 2004) and pass protection (Bulldogs allowed 14 sacks in 13 games in 2005).
> The Warriors’ three-month search was pared to nine finalists, all of whom were interviewed last week.
> Weber coached Logan Mankins, a seven-time Pro Bowl player; Ryan Wendell, who played nine NFL seasons, and 1998 Outland Trophy winner Kris Farris.
> The Warriors ended the 2017 season with no coach older than 38. Since then, they added defensive coordinator Corey Batoon (48) and assistant head coach Mark Banker (61). Weber is 59.
