Cosh takes coordinator job at USF

By The Mercury

Chris Cosh is headed to the Univeristy of South Floida to coach its defense.

The school announced the hire Wednesday night, leaving Kansas State to find a new defensive coordinator.

Cosh coached the Wildcats’ defense the last three seasons and spent five total seasons working under coach Bill Snyder at K-State.

Cosh, who will coach the linebackers as well at South Florida, worked with USF coach Skip Holtz at South Carolina from 1999-03 as assistants.

At K-State, Cosh’s defense had their share of problems, ranking 119th nationally against the run in 2010 and 105th overall.

This past season, K-State’s defense improved some under Cosh, ranking fifth in the Big 12 and 72nd overall, as the Wildcats won 10 games — losing to Arkansas 29-16 in the Cotton Bowl.

With his move to the Big East, Cosh has now been a defensive coordinator in five of the six BCS conferences.
