Purdue announces 4 new assistants to Jeff Brohm's staff
Jeff Brohm announced additions to his coaching staff on Tuesday
David Elson (linebackers), Garrick McGee (wide receivers), Ryan Wallace (tight ends/assistant offensive line) and Ashton Youboty (cornerbacks) were all named as the Boilermakers’ newest assistant coaches.
Elson was promoted after he joined the program last August. Elson, a former head coach at Western Kentucky and a defensive coordinator at several stops, spent the 2021 campaign with Purdue as a defensive quality control coach. Meanwhile, Wallace completed his fifth season on Brohm’s staff, serving as an offensive and special teams assistant. The duo helped Purdue to one of the best seasons in program history, as the Boilermakers went 9-4, knocked off two top-five teams and won the Music City Bowl.
