WINCHESTER, Va. - Shenandoah University Head Football Coach Scott Yoder announced a staff reorganization Monday morning.

Yoder, entering his fifth season at the helm of the SU program, is swapping on-field coaching roles with assistant head coach Brock McCullough.

McCullough, who has been the Hornets offensive line coach since Yoder came on board prior to the 2013 season, returns to the defensive coordinator role he held from 2008-12.

Yoder had served as his own defensive coordinator since being named as the program's third head coach in December 2012. He now focuses his on-field coaching responsibilites with the offensive line.

Additionally, full-time assistants Kalvin Oliver '04 and Drake Woodard will coordinate the run and pass games, respectively, on the defensive side of the ball under McCullough's direction.

"In assessing our staff and our program the past couple of years, I decided we needed to have a little different look defensively," Yoder said.

"Brock did an excellent job running the defense before I got here, so I thought it was natural to turn the defense over to him.

"Kalvin and Drake have been excellent assistants for me and this is also an opportunity to give them more responsibility. I will shift over to the offensive line and work with (offensive coordinator) Stan Hodgin on that side of the ball. 

"Stan has a great offensive mind, anybody who has seen us play in the past couple of years would say that, and its going to be exciting to work with him on a day-to-day basis with offensive game-planning."

Hodgin will continue to be the primary play caller for the offense.

Yoder also announced that former SU standout Garrett Rohrbaugh '16 has been added to the staff as an assistant coach. Rohrbaugh will work with the tight ends and assist Yoder with the offensive line.

Shenandoah opens its season on September 2 with a 7 p.m. non-league game versus Gallaudet.
