On one of his first days on the job, Shawn Howe watched his position group conduct a drill, and to him, it was all wrong.
Montana State’s new defensive line coach takes over a position which has been a strength of the Bobcats under their previous coaching regime. Howe is excited about the potential. He just has to teach his defensive linemen, in many ways, a starkly different style.
With Brent Vigen coming in as the Bobcats’ new head coach and Freddie Banks as the team’s defensive coordinator, MSU is transitioning to a 4-3 base defense. That means the Bobcats’ defensive front will likely make the most substantial change compared to anyone else in the program.
