Head coach Ryan Walters, who was hired from Illinois after being their defensive coordinator, is expected to hire 2 more analysts on top of the current 3 they have.
Petrilli was hired at North Texas in 2017, graduating from Boise State in 2012. He was a high school coach in Idaho and spent time at Charleston Southern, College of Idaho, Boise State and Drake before heading to North Texas.
