2009 Football Coaches: Meet Chris Cosh

MANHATTAN, Kan. Be the first to take an inside look at the 2009 Kansas State football coaching staff as k-statesports.com continues an in-depth look at each member of head coach Bill Snyder's staff.

Each day, a new staff member will be profiled with in-depth video interviews and features, along with a biographical sketch, continuing today with Assistant Head Coach and Co-Defensive Coordinator CHRIS COSH.

Cosh, who has spent the last three seasons at Maryland leading the Terrapin defense, enters his first season as Assistant Head Coach and Co-Defensive Coordinator for the Wildcats.

Cosh, who will have now served as a defensive coordinator in four of the six BCS conferences, will also oversee the linebacker position at K-State, a position he held under Snyder in 2004 and 2005.

This past season, the Terrapins (7-5) ended the regular season 35th nationally in scoring defense (21.4 points per game) and were led by All-ACC performers Alex Wujciak at linebacker and Jeremy Navarre on the defensive line.

In 2007, the Terrapin defense was highlighted by first-team All-ACC performers Erin Henderson and Dre Moore. Henderson led the league in tackles from his weakside linebacker spot, while Moore, a defensive tackle, went on to become a fourth-round draft choice of Tampa Bay in the 2008 NFL Draft.
