“After working with Sean at Ohio State, he was a guy who jumped out that if I ever landed a head job, I have to hire this guy,” Hafley said in a news release. “He is smart, reliable, sees things on gameday and really understands the big picture. He is well advanced beyond his years and has a chance to be a superstar in our profession.”
Duggan, who worked with Ohio State's defense last year, knew Ryan Day from his days playing linebacker at Boston College, where he saw action in 45 games for the Eagles from 2011 through 2014, when Day was the Eagles' receivers coach and later quarterbacks coach/offensive coordinator.
