Temple hires former Hawaii assistant Wiesehan as offensive line coach


Temple University announced this morning the hiring of Chris Wiesehan as the football team’s new offensive line coach.


A veteran of 20 years coaching, Wiesehan spent the last two seasons at the University of Hawaii.  Last season he coached the running backs. The season before that he coached the offensive line. Wiesehan replaces Allen Mogridge as the offensive line coach.


Wiesehan and Temple coach Matt Rhule were both members of the staff at the University of Buffalo in 1999-2000.


“Chris is a very intense coach,” Rhule said.  “He brings a great football mind to Temple. I’ve known him a long time and have always paid attention to the teams where he has coached and how tough he is to recruit against. He knows how to develop tough players.”


The Owls also announced the hiring of Brandon Washington as assistant strength and conditioning coach for football, and Matthew Delgado as director of video operations.


Wiesehan has spent his entire collegiate career coaching multiple offensive positions.  He broke into coaching as the receivers coach at Fort Hays State in 1994. Before joining the Buffalo staff, where he coached both receivers and tight ends, he coached tight ends and receivers at Notre Dame. He’s also coached at James Madison, UCLA and Syracuse in his career.
