Now that new Purdue coach Darrell Hazell has inked his six-year, $12 million contract, he’s begun the process of putting together his coaching staff. On Friday Hazell announced the addition of six assistant coaches for the Boilermakers. Those additions are:

Greg Hudson, Defensive Coordinator
Jim Bollman, Offensive Line
Marcus Freeman, Linebackers
Jon Heacock,  Cornerbacks
Kevin Sherman, Wide Receivers
Jafar Williams, Running Backs

Hudson joins Hazell’s coaching staff after spending the past three seasons as linebackers coach for Florida State. In 2012, the Seminoles ranked in the top 10 in scoring defense, rush defense and pass defense. Bollman comes from Boston College where he served as the offensive line coach/running game coordinator. He also spent 11 years as the offensive coordinator for Ohio State.

Freeman, Heacock and Williams all come to Purdue after serving under Hazell at Kent State while Sherman comes over from Virginia Tech.
