|Molnar joins Petrino's staff|
Veteran coach Charley Molnar has joined Paul Petrino’s staff at the University of Idaho as the Vandals’ wide receivers coach.
Petrino said Molnar’s experience as a head and assistant coach is exceptional.
“Getting Charley to join are staff was a home run for us,” Petrino said. “He has been one of the best offensive minds in college football. He is a great teacher of technique and details of his position.”
Molnar was the head coach at the University of Massachusetts in 2012 and 2013 and has been an assistant at Notre Dame (2010-11), Cincinnati (2007-09) and Central Michigan (2006) as well as Indiana State (2005), Western Michigan (2003-04), Eastern Michigan (2002), Eastern Illinois (2001), Kent State (1994-2000), Illinois State (1990-93), Western Carolina (1989) and Virginia (1987-88). His coaching career began in 1984 at his alma mater, Lock Haven.
He has helped lead teams to seven bowl games, which includes Cincinnati’s top-five ranking and Sugar Bowl appearance in the 2009 season. His career includes two as a head coach, 11 as an offensive coordinator and 17 as a quarterbacks coach. Under Molnar’s guidance, players and teams set records in the passing game everywhere he has been. Both quarterbacks and receivers have been ranked among the NCAA’s best.
