Brechin named new WR coach

The Grand Valley State University football team has named Bill Brechin as their new wide receivers coach. After working under Brian Kelly at Notre Dame for three seasons, Brechin will return to GVSU where he was a starting cornerback from 2005-2007. The three-year All-GLIAC performer notched 82 career tackles, 24 passes defended and eight interceptions to go with his pair of back-to-back national titles. GVSU was 40-1 during his playing career. His defensive presence was felt in the 2006 NCAA DII Championship Game, where he intercepted two passes and a recovered a fumble.
He replaces former offensive coordinator/quarterback coach Eric Koehler, who will be the new quarterbacks coach at Illinois State University.
