Five assistants football coaches hired

Five coaches were added to CMU football coach Dan Enos’ coaching staff, a source with knowledge of the situation confirmed Tuesday night.

Former Marshall offensive line coach and recruiting coordinator Mike Cummings was added, along with Kyle Nystrom, former assistant head coach and linebackers coach at North Dakota State. The other three are Terrence Samuel, former wide receivers coach at North Dakota State; Kort Shankweiler, a graduate assistant coach at Michigan State; and Max Glowacki, the lone holdover from Butch Jones’ staff who served as tight ends coach and recruiting coordinator at CMU.

Cummings will be CMU’s offensive line coach, Samuel will coach the wide receivers and Shankweiler will coach the running backs.

Nystrom was a student assistant coach at Michigan State for five years until graduating in 1988. Enos played quarterback at MSU from 1987-90. Nystrom spent four seasons at NDSU. Before that, he coached at Texas Christian for four seasons and at Western Michigan for 13 seasons.

Samuel coached at NDSU for two seasons. He served as an offensive coordinator and running backs coach for Nebraska-Omaha in 2007. Prior to spending the past two seasons at MSU, Shankweiler was a fullback at East Carolina from 2003-06.

CMU roots

For Cummings, it is a bit of a reunion at CMU.

He obtained a master’s degree in athletics administration from CMU in 1990, where he was a graduate assistant coach from 1988-90. He served as the offensive line coach for the Chippewas from 1992-97 before returning for his third stint in 1999 as offensive line coach.

Cummings also has coaching experience at Western Michigan and Eastern Michigan before his most recent stint at Marshall.

Glowacki was a four-year letterman at CMU from 1994-97. He worked with offensive linemen at Sacremento State in 2004 and 2005 before becoming Wayne State’s offensive line coach in 2006.

He has been on CMU’s staff since 2007.

Official titles have not been announced, but the source said Enos will have his staff completed by next week.
