Eastern Michigan continues to revamp football staff with hiring of two new assistants
The overhaul of the Eastern Michigan football staff continued on Monday with the hiring of two new assistant coaches.
The university announced the hiring of Ryan Oshnock as a special teams coach and Brad Wilson as the team's new offensive line coach. Oshncock and Wilson are the fourth and fifth new assistant coaches added to head coach Ron English's staff so far this offseason.
Wilson has spent the past three seasons as the run game coordinator/offensive line coach at Division II Fort Lewis College and prior to that was a graduate assistant under current Michigan coach Brady Hoke at San Diego State and Ball State.

Oshnock spent last season as the defensive coordinator for Division II Ferris State University and previously worked at Central Michigan and Cincinnati under current Tennessee coach Butch Jones.
English is entering the final year of his five-year contract with Eastern Michigan. The hiring of five new assistants so far this offseason -- most notably offensive coordinator Stan Parrish -- is as drastic a shakeup of his staff since after his first season with the Eagles, 2009, when the team went 0-12.
Eastern is 10-38 under English with six of those wins coming in the 2011 season when Eastern went 6-6 and English was named Mid-American Conference coach of the year. Eastern went 2-10 last season.
