On pursuit of culture change, CMU's McElwain makes moves over winter break

Since the conclusion of the fall semester, much has changed with the Central Michigan football team.

Looking past the firing of now-former coach John Bonamego and hiring of new coach Jim McElwain, two entities which occurred while school was still in session, pristine updates have emerged.

For starters, McElwain wiped nearly all of Bonamego's staff – keeping tight ends coach Tavita Thompson, defensive backs coach Cory Hall and offensive line coach Derek Frazier.

Those not returning include defensive coordinator Greg Colby, offensive coordinator Chris Ostrowsky, special teams coordinator Tony Coaxum, linebackers coach Mike Dietzel, running backs coach Jayden Everett, wide receivers coach Marcus Knight and defensive line coach George Ricumstrict.
