Wiegand to coach UCD’s offensive line

From page B1 | January 22, 2013 |

While The Enterprise has reported seven names out of what is expected to be a nine-man coaching staff for the UC Davis football team next fall, the program and new head coach Ron Gould have shed more light on the responsibilities of one of the new mentors.

Matt Wiegand — one of five new coaches who will join returners Kevin Daft, Jeff Kopp, Will Kofe and Damaro Wheeler on staff — will oversee the Aggies’ offensive line. The other new coaches who have been announced are Ben Steele, who is the recruiting coordinator and will work with tight ends, and Bryan Wright.

The 29-year-old Wiegand spent the past two seasons at Cal as a graduate assistant, joining the Golden Bears after two years at Utah where he worked with the offensive line in 2009 and 2010. He held similar responsibilities at Cal, where he coached alongside Gould, also helping with the tight ends.

Wiegand coached two seasons at Arcadia High in Southern California before earning his first collegiate position as the offensive line coach and video coordinator for Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. Wiegand was a coaching intern and operations assistant for the Los Angeles Avengers of the Arena Football League in 2008, the same season he was an assistant coach at Occidental College.

He was named to the All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference team as an offensive lineman at the University of La Verne in 2006 prior to earning his undergraduate degree in movement and sport science in 2007. Wiegand received a master’s degree from Azusa Pacific in organizational leadership in 2009.

He and his wife, Brandy, have been married since 2009.
