Nick Rolovich has brought in a couple of new staff members this past week that you may have not heard about.

First off, he hired Jessi Seumalo away from Utah to be the Director of On-Campus Recruiting for the Cougars. Seumalo started her career at Oregon State as a recruiting assistant before heading to Salt Lake City to be the Ute’s Football Recruiting Operations Coordinator. Rolovich had talked to Theo Lawson of the Spokesman about doubling the program’s recruiting staff and this appears to be the first step.

Veteran west coast coach Dan Ferrigno announced on his twitter account that he will also be joining the WSU program in an unspecified role. The long-time Wide Receivers, Tight Ends and Special Teams coach has been an assistant at numerous Power 5 programs. He was Tony Gonzalez’s position coach at Cal and served as wide receivers coach at Oregon and Cal during some very successful seasons in the early aughts coaching talents like Keenen Howry and DeSean Jackson. Ferrigno’s most recent Power 5 gig was with Michigan as special teams and tight ends coach. He was most recently at Cal Poly. Always good to have another experienced coach on the staff.
