Rasool becomes Falcons’ cornerbacks coach


Bowling Green head football coach Scot Loeffler announced the hiring of Beyah Rasool as the cornerbacks coach and special teams assistant. Rasool comes to BGSU after spending the last two seasons at Arizona as a senior defensive analyst.

Rasool replaces Chris Hedden (offensive run game coordinator and offensive line coach) on staff who left earlier this month for another opportunity. Loeffler has also shifted position coaches on the offensive side of the ball.

Co-offensive coordinator Greg Nosal will shift over to cover the offensive line and will also be the run game coordinator. Special teams coordinator Alex Bayer will continue in that role and coach the tight ends.

“Beyah Rasool is an up-and-coming talent in our industry,” said Loeffler. “Beyah will bring energy and knowledge to our program. He has experience at the “Power-5”, junior college and high school levels that will benefit our student athletes tremendously.”

Rasool added, “I couldn’t be more excited and grateful for the opportunity to serve Bowling Green State University, it’s community and student athletes.

“Bowling Green and the state of Ohio is a special place that I have followed for years. I look forward to joining a tremendous staff under the leadership of Derek van der Merwe and head coach Scot Loeffler, two people I hope to make proud as I give my very best to this football team.”

Rasool spent the 2021 and 2022 seasons at Arizona as a senior defensive analyst working assigned to the defensive backs. During his time in Tucson, he led all the national defensive recruiting efforts for the Wild Cats.

Prior to his time at Arizona Rasool spent two years at Missouri as a graduate assistant. In 2019 he spent time with the safeties and moved to the defensive line in 2020.

From 2014-2016 Rasool was the secondary coach and recruiting coordinator at Eastern Arizona College in Thatcher, Ariz. During his three season the defense ranked top-10 nationally and were the 2016 Salt Lake City Bowl Champs.

Prior to EAC, Rasool coached corners at Pima Community College in 2012. From 2008-2011 Rasool coached in the high school ranks. He started in 2008 at his alma mater Rincon High School in Tucson as head coach and defensive coordinator of the freshman team. He moved onto Sahuaro High School in Tucson as the junior varsity head coach in 2010 and was the varsity co-defensive coordinator and secondary coach at Ironwood Ridge High School in 2011.

A native of Tucson, Ariz., Rasool played football at Eastern Arizona College in 2006 and 2007. He is a 2020 graduate of Missouri with a bachelor of arts and science degree in general studies.
