Nick Monroe and Larry McDaniel have been retained on the Bowling Green State University football staff by new head coach Dino Babers.
Monroe has been BG’s secondary coach for the last five seasons helping develop all-conference performers Jerry ‘BooBoo’ Gates and Cameron Truss.
A graduate of St. Cloud State University, Monroe coached as Allegheny College and Colgate University before coming to Bowling Green.
McDaniel has coached BG’s defensive line for the last four years. In that time he has helped develop All-American Chris Jones, now with the New England Patriots, and all-conference performer Ted Ouellet.
A graduate of Indiana University, McDaniel has been an assistant coach for 15 years at Mid-American Conference schools, including Kent State and Ball State.

The 2-3 zone defense has been used by the Bowling Green Falcon men's basketball team to frustrate opponents on numerous occasions during Louis Orr's tenure as head coach.
On Wednesday night, Eastern Michigan threw its version of the 2-3 zone at the Falcons, and it wasn't pretty for Bowling Green.
In the Mid-American Conference opener for both teams, the Falcons struggled to score and the Eagles were able to carve out a 56-51 victory.  PHOTO GALLERY
''The zone was tough. They have such a small, athletic team with a 7-footer to protect the paint, and it's hard to get easy looks,'' BG's Richaun Holmes said. ''At the same time, I feel like we had a few shots that we just didn't convert on.
''They play really good half-court defense. I'll give them credit for their zone, but most of it is on us for not knocking down the shots we had.''

Bowling Green sophomore defenseman Ralfs Freibergs has been selected to play for Latvia in next month’s Winter Olympics.
The 5-foot-11, 191-pounder learned of his selection Sunday after returning from the Falcons’ Western Collegiate Hockey Association series at Alabama-Huntsville.
Freibergs, an offensive defenseman who skates well, is the Falcons’ third-leading scorer with 16 points on one goal and 15 assists. He also has an on-ice rating of plus-3.
Freibergs, who is from Riga, Latvia, played for his native country in the World Championships in 2013.
“It’s a great honor,” said Freibergs, who is 24. “It’s something you always dream about, but you never expect it to happen. I’m very, very excited to be playing in the Olympics and to be a part of the entire Olympic experience.”
“It’s a great honor for him,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said. “We’re really, really excited for him.”

BG hopes Carpenter plays this weekend (01-08-14) PDF Print E-mail

Bowling Green remains hopeful  Ryan Carpenter will play this weekend.
The Falcon hockey forward has been out with a broken foot since Nov. 13.
The junior captain hasn’t played in a game this season after breaking his finger in BG’s exhibition Oct. 5 and then his foot, two days before he was scheduled to return against Ferris State.
Carpenter, one of the WCHA’s best players, is practicing with the team and is close to a return.
“I expect him to be in the conversation for this weekend, but it’s still too early to tell,” BG coach Chris Bergeron said Tuesday.
BG hosts Alaska Friday and Saturday in a Western Collegiate Hockey Association series at the Ice Arena.

Former BG coach has Indiana women ranked for first time in 21 years PDF Print E-mail

Former Bowling Green Falcon head coach Curt Miller figured it was going to be a long rebuilding project when he took over Indiana last season. Maybe it won’t take as long as the veteran coach thought.
The undefeated Hoosiers earned their first Top 25 ranking in nearly 21 years Monday when they entered the poll at No. 22.
“We’re ahead of schedule,” Miller said in a phone interview. “Last year we think we overachieved at 11-19. Coming into this year we were predicted to finish 12th in the conference because we graduated our three leading scorers. To do what we’ve done already in year two is great, but our long journey is far from being over.”
There wasn’t much celebration of the ranking on campus as Indiana (14-0) was closed for the storm that was blasting the Midwest. Being in the Top 25 is something expected in the basketball crazed state — on the men’s side that is. The men’s program has been ranked for a total of 175 weeks since the women’s only previous appearance in the poll.
Earning the first ranking since more than half his players were born is a great accomplishment for Miller’s team.
“We’re really excited now,” he said. “We are just in the baby steps of rebuilding this program where it needs to be. We’re off to a good start and there is great chemistry in the locker room.”
