OGDEN, Utah – Weber State head football coach Jay Hill announced on Monday afternoon that he has promoted three members of his coaching staff.

Jay Hill has named Grant Duff and Joe Dale as co-Defensive Coordinators and Skyler Ridley is the Special Teams Coordinator.

โ€œIโ€™m really excited for these changes and promotions to our staff,โ€ Hill said. โ€œGrant and Joe have been here a long time and they understand the defense very well. I have full confidence in our defensive staff so that freed me up to focus on all three phases of the game. Skyler is very sharp and heโ€™ll be an aggressive coach that will do a great job on special teams. I love what this does to our staff and these coaches all deserve these promotions.โ€
