The new Utah State football coaching staff so far has some key pieces of the old one.
Matt Wells retained his third staff member in the last week, bringing back wide receivers coach Jovon Bouknight. With defensive line coach Frank Maile and cornerbacks coach Kendrick Shaver back in the fold, Wells is still half a dozne hires away from completing his staff.
But Bouknight will help Wells retain the offensive style that has led Utah State to winning records each of the last two years. Last season, the team set program records in single-season points, total offense and total yards on the way to a 11-2 finish. Bringing back Bouknight ensures a measure of continuity on that side of the ball.
