Herald sports staff

The WKU football coaching staff is now complete after the final two additions announced Monday afternoon. 

New football coach Jeff Brohm has added Greg Nord to coach running backs and Ken Delgado to be the defensive ends coach. The moves come shortly after Tyson Helton was appointed as offensive coordinator and Jamarcus Shephard was promoted to wide receivers coach. 

“Ken and Greg were two coaches that I thought very highly of during our time together at Louisville,” Brohm said in a press release. “I came to know them as highly motivated, successful coaches and look forward to working with them again. Both are great coaches, great family men and will be excellent role models and leaders in their meeting rooms.”

Nord, a Louisville native and Kentucky graduate, most recently spent time with the Wildcats from 2011-12 as special teams coordinator and tight ends coach. It was second stint at Kentucky after serving as a graduate assistant in 1979 before he started coaching running backs until 1989. 

Nord made stops at East Carolina and Georgia Tech before returning to his hometown of Louisville to coach the Cardinals’ running backs and tight ends. He served as assistant head coach with former WKU coach Bobby Petrino at Louisville from 2003-06 and remained on staff until 2009. 

Ken Delgado comes to WKU after three years coaching defensive ends at Eastern Michigan. Prior to that, he spent two seasons at Louisville coaching the defensive line. He started his coaching career with eight seasons at his alma mater, San Diego State, including one season coaching defensive linemen at Utah. 

Brohm also promoted Jamarcus Shephard to wide receivers coach after spending the past two years as offensive and defensive quality control assistant. Brohm named Tyson Helton – formerly of Cincinnati – WKU’s new offensive coordinator Jan. 25.
