  Gopher Assistant Coaches
The head coach always needs the help of a dedicated staff to help carry out his vision.  Over the years the Gophers have had full time, part time and volunteer assistant coaches.  Below is a list of some of those assistants.  As more information is uncovered this list will hopefully grow.
