University of Montana head football coach Mick Delaney has filled one of three assistant coaching vacancies.

Jake Cookus has been coaching at Weber State University for the past seven years, where he has worked with special teams, safeties and cornerbacks and was co-defensive coordinator from 2009 to 2011.

Coach Delaney says he will be announcing the hiring of two more assistant coaches, wide receivers and tight ends, later this week.
