Louisville head coach Steve Kragthorpe decided to elevate recently hired linebackers coach and former Utah State head coach Brent Guy to defensive coordinator. Guy will maintain his duties coaching the linebackers as well. This all after Kragthorpe replaced Ron English, who bolted after one season to coach Eastern Michigan. Kragthorpe replaced English with Bill Miller, who had previously been coaching the linebackers for the Cardinals, but in the end, decided to take a position as co-defensive coordinator for the Kansas Jayhawks. I think in the end, this is ended up pretty well for Krags, given that Guy is well respected as a defensive coordinator despite his disastrous stint as head coach at Utah State.
