Team preview: Louisiana-Monroe
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college football season, exclusively on Insider.
In an effort to turn around the program that has won only seven games the last four years, Weatherbie added five new coaches -- the group headlined by former Army head coach Todd Berry, the new offensive coordinator.
Weatherbie, who took over the program three months before the start of the 2003 season, also hired defensive coordinator Bob Trott, a holdover from the Mike Collins' regime.
The Indians will feature a new offense, a multiple attack installed by Berry that fully utilizes the talents of two-year starting quarterback Steven Jyles. In past years, Jyles has been used as a drop-back passer. Now, he will become more active as a runner and play-action passer.
