ORONO – Former head coach Joe Harasymiak was not the only departure from the Black Bear coaching staff Thursday, as the man in his former position is leaving as well.
Defensive coordinator Corey Hetherman is departing for the same position at James Madison.
This comes as a part of a restructuring of the coaching staff at JMU after hiring former Elon head coach Curt Cignetti.
The Dukes also hired Cignetti’s running backs coach at Elon, Matt Merritt.
Hetherman was named the FBS/FCS assistant coach of the year last month by the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston.
Under his watch, Maine racked up six defensive all-conference players and an AP All-American in Sterling Sheffield, as well as leading the conference in total defense this season.
