Dino Babers is bringing assistant coaches to Bowling Green with whom he feels comfortable with for the 2014 season.
Babers, hired last month to replace Dave Clawson the Falcons’ head coach for the last five years, has retained secondary coach Nick Monroe from the previous Bowling Green staff.
The remainder of the staff announced Monday afternoon was with Babers at Eastern Illinois.
Babers has one assistant coaching opening to fill after Larry McDaniel left last week to join the staff at Indiana.
Sterlin Gilbert, quarterbacks, and Matt Mattox, offensive line, are the co-offensive coordinators. Gilbert spent two seasons as offensive coordinator at EIU. Mattox, who played for Art Briles at Houston, was the offensive line coach at EIU a season ago.
Kim McCloud is the defensive coordinator, after serving in the same position at EIU under Babers the past two seasons.
Tom Kaufman, linebackers, will serve as special teams coordinator for the Falcons.
Mike Lynch, running backs, Sean Lewis, inside receivers, and Tom Freeman, defensive line, will also join Babers’ staff. All three were assistant coaches at EIU last season.
Sean Edinger, director of strength and conditioning, and Roy Wittke, director of football operations, will be members of the support staff at Bowling Green. Both of them served in the same capacity at EIU.

The defense did its job.
And the offense was efficient when it counted.
Those two elements combined to propel the Bowling Green State University women’s basketball team past Northern Illinois, 57-44 Sunday afternoon in the Stroh Center.
‘‘There were a lot of things that we were able to do successfully, against a talented team in Northern Illinois,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘I thought we did a good job of forcing them into some shots they didn’t want to take. And shooting late in the shot clock was a big key for us down the stretch.’’

Turnovers and missed shots led to the demise of the Bowling Green State University men’s basketball team Saturday.
Miami took advantage of BG’s problems and posted a 70-65 win to end Bowling Green’s three-game winning streak.
‘‘We didn’t come out with the same enthusiasm as the previous games during the streak,’’ BG junior Jehvon Clarke said. ‘‘That was the biggest hindsight during the game. We came out flat and we were content. We were content at where we were at; we didn’t focus on the game at hand.
‘‘We didn’t come to play tonight.’’
Bowling Green, 9-10 overall and 3-3 in the Mid-American Conference, turned the ball over 14 times, resulting in 18 points for Miami, 8-9, 4-2.
The Falcons were 13-of-33 from the field (39.4 percent) in the second half, and 23-of-55 (41.8 percent) for the game.
‘‘The grind part of the game, the stops, the defense ... That’s how Miami plays, they grind,’’ BG head coach Louis Orr said. ‘‘If the game is not flowing offensively, easy, you have to be willing and able to grind too.’’

Babers may throw movie quiz at Falcons (1-24-14) PDF Print E-mail

Dino Babers is a big-time movie buff.
And the new Bowling Green State University football coach might just test the movie knowledge of his team next season.
During his two years at Eastern Illinois, Babers would select three movies for the team to watch on the long bus trips to away games. Two of the movies would be old-time films from the era in which Babers grew up, and the third would be a more modern film.
When the team arrived at its destination, Babers would quiz the players on how the movies were relevant to the upcoming game.
It usually worked, but one major flop was the comedy ‘Airplane.’
The team was too young to understand why it was funny that Barbara Billingsley, who played June Cleaver on Leave it to Beaver a comedy which aired from 1957-1963, would be able to talk ‘jive.’
