The Western Michigan Broncos had a pretty successful 2015 season as they finished with an 8-5 record and a win over Middle Tennessee State in the Bahamas Bowl. They are looking to improve on that in 2016 and they are starting by hiring former Southern Mississippi assistant coach David Duggan.

Duggan spent time as linebackers coach with the Golden Eagles from 2008-2011 and then from 2013-2015. He was the special teams coordinator at North Carolina in 2012 and will now join P.J. Fleck’s staff as linebackers coach in 2016.

“Coach David Duggan was an absolute no-brainer hire,” Fleck said. “To be honest I think it was a little bit of a surprise he was available. A former NFL head coach in NFL Europe, defensive coordinator at multiple stops, he has an incredible resume and incredible energy and a passion to teach and coach along with a willingness to come take our program to a completely different level. I hope our players truly understand the resource they now have at the linebacker position. We want to welcome him, his wife Lynn and his two daughters Olivia and Grace.”

Duggan’s career as coach stretches much farther back than with Southern Miss. He has spent time with New Hampshire, Colgate, Holy Cross, and Brown, as well as serving as the head coach of NFL Europe’s Cologne Centurions from 2006-2007, posting a record of 10-9 in the two seasons.
