SMU hires veteran offensive line coach

SMU announced Monday it has hired veteran Bob Palcic as offensive line coach.

Palcic, who broke into coaching in the 1970s, spent the previous four seasons as UCLA's associate head coach for offense and offensive line coach.

Palcic has held multiple college and NFL coaching positions. Three players won the Outland Trophy while being coached by Palcic: Wisconsin's Joe Thomas and Gabe Carimi and UCLA's Jonathan Ogden.

SMU coach June Jones and Palcic have worked together before. Palcic was offensive line coach under Jones for the Atlanta Falcons in 1994-96.
