Report: Offensive coordinator Guidugli to head to Cincinnati

Newly promoted offensive coordinator Gino Guidugli is departing to become the running backs coach at Cincinnati, according to Bearcats Sports Radio's Twitter account.  

Guidugli was promoted to offensive coordinator in late December after spending four seasons as Central Michigan's running backs coach. He was set to replace former offensive coordinator Morris Watts, who had called the plays since 2011.

Guidugli played quarterback at Cincinnati from 2001 to 2004, leading the team to three bowl berths during his career. His departure comes just three weeks after former running backs coach Nick Sheridan left for his alma mater Indiana on Feb. 3.

Guidugli is the fourth CMU coach to leave this offseason as wide receivers coach Mose Rison retired in January.

The Chippewas are now without an offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach and running backs coach. The team's Spring Game is scheduled for April 22.
