Gilbertson will be responsible for supervising the staff and overseeing daily operations of the football program. He will oversee the operation of the football program until the resolution of the termination process. At that time, if necessary, Hedges will name a replacement to the vacated head coaching position.
"As we proceed through this process, it is necessary to have a member of the current staff coordinate the efforts of the football department and Keith has agreed to serve in that capacity," Hedges said. "This is a very difficult time for everyone in the football office, yet at the same time, it is necessary to go about the business at hand and that includes having someone with the authority to make final decisions on some matters. Keith will work in that role and I appreciate his willingness to accept these additional responsibilities during this time."
