Local roundup: Rod Carey announces NIU offensive coaches' staff assignments

Northern Illinois football coach Rod Carey finalized the assignments for the coaching staff on offense for the upcoming season.

Mike Uremovich, who was recently hired as the offensive coordinator, will coach the tight ends and fullbacks. Craig Harmon, who previously coached the tight ends and fullbacks, will switch over to coach the quarterbacks – Harmon is a former NIU quarterback – and work with the special teams.

Joe Tripodi will continue to coach the offensive line and will be the Huskies’ run-game coordinator, while Thad Ward (receivers) and Kelton Copeland (running backs) will stay with their respective positions.

“I’m really excited about our offensive staff and believe it’s one of the finest in the country,” Carey said.
