First-year head coach Mike Sanford has announced two additions to his staff

WKU head coach Mike Sanford has added an offensive coordinator and defensive line coach this week

If there was any doubt that the Western Kentucky offense will remain with a high-octane attack, the announcement of Junior Adams as offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach should erase any wonder.

Adams arrives following three seasons at Boise State, where he helped produce the program's first two 1,000-yards receivers.  Adams served as the Broncos passing game coordinator this past season, overseeing an passing attack that finished No. 15 nationally, averaging 298.3 yards.

Sanford, a Boise State alum, announced the hiring on Wednesday morning.

“Adding Junior Adams to our offensive staff room is an absolute coup for us,” Sanford said in a release. “His background in innovate offenses and coaching wide receivers is without equal, and I couldn’t be more excited to have Junior as our offensive coordinator.”

Also joining the staff to coach the Hilltopper defensive line is Jimmy Lindsey.

Lindsey, who played and began his coaching career at Chattanooga, arrives on The Hill following a season tutoring the defensive front at Georgia Southern.

"I am excited to add Jimmy Lindsey to our coaching staff,” Sanford said. “Coach Lindsey is a technician of defensive line play who will add NFL coaching experience to our defensive staff room, and he is synonymous with Georgia recruiting."
