Roger Cooper

Cooper has been with Montana for the previous two seasons. He's worked with multiple position groups - linebackers and safeties.

The former Montana State Bobcat, we'll cut him some slack for wising up to the good side. In between Bozeman and Missoula, Cooper spent 10 seasons in Pocatello at Idaho State. A wide variety of positions comes attached to the coach's resume. He has coached running backs, linebackers, safeties, and experienced life as a co-defensive coordinator and associate head coach.

Cooper is originally from Port Orchard, Washington.

Tim Hauck

The Griz lost Bradford to the NFL, but they replaced him with a former NFL coach. Hauck spent 2023 as a Defensive Analyst. The ex-Tennessee Titan has been in coaching since 2004, where he spent 4 seasons as an assistant under Coach Bobby Hauck. Since then he coached the Titans, the Cleveland Browns and the Philadelphia Eagles (where he won Super Bowl 52 over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots).

Hacuk was credited with a lot of the success of Montana's drubbing of the rivals from Bozeman last year. Of course, Hauck is the brother of Bobby Hauck.
