To start offensively, the staff will include Lindsey Lamar (Howard), Arthur Ray (Howard), Mike Brown (Wisconsin), Juan Soto (Wagner College), Daryl Agpalsa (Northern Illinois), Winston DeLattiboudere (Minnesota) and former Packers Wide Receiver, Myles White (Miami of Ohio). Defensively, the coaches that will be joining include former NFL safety and coach at UNLV, Akeem Davis, Siriki Diabate (Connecticut) and Michael Hunter (Tulsa). The program will highlight four strength and conditioning coaches including Bryant Harper (Texas A&M), A.J. Blue (North Carolina), Ike Brown (LSU), Rendrick Taylor (Colorado).
