When 2014 DC Dick Bumpas decided to retire, Gary Patterson was left with a tough decision. On Wednesday the team announced that safeties coach Chad Glasgow and linebackers coach DeMontie Cross were promoted to co-defensive coordinators. Dan Sharp, the special teams coordinator was moved to defensive line coach, as Bumpas also coached that unit.
