Kevin Reihner assumes offensive coordinator role for Monarchs

On Sunday afternoon, Head Coach Ricky Rahne announced numerous changes to his offensive coaching staff after offensive coordinator Dave Patenaude's resignation.

NORFOLK, Va. — There was surely some restructuring that needed to be done for the Monarch's program after offensive coordinator Dave Patenaude resigned earlier this month, just three weeks before their season opener against Virginia Tech. 

On Sunday Rahne announced that he's hired Greg Jones as an assistant offensive line coach who joins Old Dominion after six seasons at Wake Forest. 

That would be the only external hire as Rahne assigned many promotions within his current staff. Kevin Reihner will assume the vacant role of offensive coordinator along with his current position as the offensive line coach. Mark Dupuis, who is in his third season as wide receivers coach, will add pass game coordinator to his role and Tony Lucas has been promoted to assistant head coach while also continuing to lead the Monarchs running backs group. Finally, Justin Harper, has been promoted to offensive recruiting coordinator and will continue to coach tight ends.

ODU opens the 2022 slate at home against Virginia Tech on Friday, Sept. 2.
