    Ty Gregorak not returning as Montana State Bobcats’ defensive coordinator

    https://montanasports.com/cat-griz/m...e-coordinator/

    BOZEMAN — Ty Gregorak, who took over as the Montana State defensive coordinator in 2016, will not return to the Bobcats this fall, according to multiple sources.

    Gregorak previously coached at the University of Montana, where he was the linebacker coach from 2003-09 and the defensive coordinator from 2011-15. He joined the staff at Montana State after Jeff Choate was hired to take over the program prior to the 2016 season.

    The reason for this isn't clear yet, but it doesn't seem like he already has a job lined up.

    And Andrew Schmidt's contention that Gregorak turned MSU's defense into a "top-three" unit is a stretch to say the least.

    True, but they definitely got a lot better.
    Waiting for the Griz to become relevant again.

    True, but the bar wasn't set very high by the previous coordinator.

    Right. MSU's defense was shockingly terrible Ash's last couple years.

    Who's now coming back as the Defensive Coordinator.

    Kane Ioane, who was the DC in 2015, is returning as the Cats new Coordinator.
    Idaho * Portland State * Cal State-Fullerton * Eastern Washington * Nevada * Delaware * Southern Utah * Youngstown State * Hofstra * Montana State * North Dakota State * Western Illinois * Cal Poly * Massachusetts * Wofford * Northern Arizona * Coastal Carolina * Weber State * UC Davis *
    ...the only visiting teams to win in Washington-Grizzly Stadium

    Hmmm... I'm not sure whether Kane was ever more than co-defensive coordinator in any way other than title. Hard to tell. I've never cared for the co-coordinator thing.

    Choate is a defensive-minded coach. Kane is still fairly young. I wonder if Choate wants someone he can mold. Kane just spent 2 years as defensive quality control at Washington. Choate has good ties to Peterson, so I suppose he's satisfied that Kane can handle it. I guess we'll find out. We're going to have some young coordinators next year between Matt Miller and Kane Ioane.

    Re: Ty Gregorak not returning as Montana State Bobcats’ defensive coordinator

    1. He was fired he didnt quit. He had no choice but to "resign".
    2. Last week (Tuesday or Weds) he reached out to Messingham at NDSU and talked about KState and a possible LB coaching position.
    3. Ty is currently talking to one other school about a DC position
    4. Gregorek is a certified tool and I hope Klieman is nt stupid enough to touch this guy.
    AG1 now available in "Internet Black"

    Kane would definitely be a young coordinator Choate could mold to his own philosophy. With Miller and Ioane as the Coordinators next season, both MSU Coordinators will be under 40 years old. I'm already looking forward to following how they perform.

    Top three in FCS. Yes that would be a huge stretch.

    Top three in Big Sky. That is not a stretch.
