Report: Former Michigan, Rutgers LB lands gig as CBs coach with FCS program
Ross Douglas, a member of Rutgers’ staff and a former player for both the Scarlet Knights and Michigan, has landed a full-time gig, according to a report.
Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports is reporting that Richmond is hiring Douglas to be the team’s cornerbacks coach. Douglas was on Rutgers’ staff for three seasons and was most recently a graduate assistant on defense under new head coach Greg Schiano.
Douglas spent two seasons at Rutgers (2016-17) and appeared in 22 career games, which included 12 starts as a senior during the 2017 campaign. He totaled 42 tackles and 4 pass break-ups in his two seasons with the Scarlet Knights.
Before his time at Rutgers, Douglas spent three seasons at Michigan (2013-15), transferring out after Jim Harbaugh’s first season in Ann Arbor. He had 10 carries for 18 yards in 6 games with the Wolverines.
Immediately after his playing career came to an end, Douglas stuck around Piscataway and joined Chris Ash’s staff. He also remained on staff when Schiano took over following the 2019 season.
