The MWCConnection 2021 Preseason All-Coach Team

Let’s put the best coaches at each position on one list.

NCAA Football: Arizona Bowl-Ball State vs San Jose State Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

t’s Thursday and we are still rolling out new preview content for Kickoff Week. Today looks at the fourth post of the week, the All-Coach team. Like the name suggests, our team voted on the best coach at each position and listed them all on one team. Some spots were more difficult to identify than others, but we put together a good team nonetheless. Check it out below and if you missed out on anything from earlier in the week, catch up on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

For this list, we kept it simple. A head coach, three coordinators, and the eight traditional assistants. Many defensive spots have multiple coaches on the DL, LB, or in the secondary, but we listed them all as one spot to attempt to keep it fair. Also, although coordinators weren’t necessarily exempt from being listed a second time as a position coach, our voters didn’t double up on the final results.

Head Coach

  • Brent Brennan (San Jose State)

Offensive Coordinator

  • Matt Mumme (Nevada)

Quarterback Coach

  • Matt Mumme (Nevada)

Running Back Coach

  • Lee Marks (Fresno State)

Wide Receiver Coach

  • Timmy Chang (Nevada)

Tight End Coach

  • Cody Booth (Colorado State)

Offensive Line Coach

  • Mike Goff (San Diego State)

Defensive Coordinator

  • John Rudzinski (Air Force)

Defensive Line Coach

  • Joe Seumalo (San Jose State)

Linebacker Coach

  • Aaron Bohl (Wyoming)

Secondary Coach

  • Demitrius Sumler (San Diego State)

Special Teams Coordinator

  • Thomas Sheffield (Nevada)

Team Totals:

  • Nevada: 4
  • San Diego State: 2
  • San Jose State: 2
  • Air Force: 1
  • Colorado State: 1
  • Fresno State: 1
  • Wyoming: 1


  • The 6 unanimous picks were: Mumme (for OC and QB), Sheffield, Booth, Bohl, and Sumler.
  • The closest position battles were at running back, offensive line, and defensive line
  • Three different coaches received votes at the offensive line. All other positions were two-man races.
  • As can be shown above, Nevada was the clear leader in coaching votes. Keep in mind San Jose State lost a few coaches this past off-season.
  • For the first time since we have been doing this, Boise State did not have any coach at the top of their position (although they were close at DL and had others receiving votes). While part of that is the new staff, part of it is also the coaching talent with other teams.

There it is. So let’s hear it. Who did we snub? Who did we put on here that shouldn’t be? Let’s hear you feedback in the comments section.
