Wake Forest hires 2 football assistants

WINSTON-SALEM - Wake Forest has added two assistants to its football staff.

Coach Jim Grobe said Friday that Jonathan Himebauch will coach the offensive line and Derrick Jackson will be in charge of the defensive line.

Himebauch had coached in the Canadian Football League since 2009 and was hired as the Toronto Argonauts' offensive coordinator two months ago.

Jackson spent last season coaching the defensive line at Rice.

Their hirings were announced roughly a month after the school said special teams coordinator Keith Henry and co-defensive coordinator Tim Billings would not return.

Looks like two good hires. Would have been even better if Lobo was replaced as OC.

Wake Forest Basketball tried to duplicate what Duke did years ago. Bring in a coach from a military school. If it doesn' work they can always go to Wagner and get the Hurley Brothers, NCSU and get Lutz, or to Witchita and get Greg Marshall.

Football is in good hands.

Pretty sure Wake wasn't trying to duplicate Dook. Gaudio coached at Army. What good was that? Lutz the leprechaun? Hurley bros? Good Lord. No thanks.
