Cosh named Wildcats' co-defensive coordinator

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

Maryland defensive coordinator Chris Cosh has been hired as Kansas State's co-defensive coordinator and assistant head coach.

Cosh previously worked under Bill Snyder in 2004-05 as the Wildcats' linebackers coach.

The Terrapins ended the regular season ranked 35th nationally in scoring defense (21.4 points allowed per game) and were led by All-ACC performers Alex Wujciak at linebacker and Jeremy Navarre on the defensive line.

Earlier, Cosh worked as linebackers coach and defensive coordinator at South Carolina under Lou Holtz and as defensive coordinator under Nick Saban at Michigan State.

It's a solid hire and Cosh is a respected, veteran coach. I'm still curious who will be working with him as co-coordinator.

I'm still hearing that Vic Koenning, most recently of Clemson and a former standout linebacker at Kansas State during his playing career, might be the choice. We'll see over the next few days.
