CMU Installs New Offense Under Ostrowksy

MT. PLEASANT – As the Central Michigan football program continues its second week of spring practice, it does so under the direction of a new offensive coordinator.

Former Northern Michigan head coach Chris Ostrowksy was hired in March to replace Gino Guidugli, who had initially been promoted to offensive coordinator prior to departing for his alma mater Cincinnati to become the team’s running backs coach.

Ostrowsky spent five seasons leading the Wildcats, compiling an 18-36 record, including 5-6 overall finish in 2016. Prior to taking over the head coaching reins, Ostrowsky served stints as an offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach and assistant head coach at Northern Michigan, Northeastern (Mass.) and Widener (Pa.).

"I couldn’t ask for any more than our guys are giving right now,” Ostrowsky said. “I think they’re learning a new system for sure, and a new approach, and it’s been awesome through three practices thus far.”

“There’s been a lot of energy,” added CMU head coach John Bonamego. “Guys have really embraced the changes, and they’re working really, really hard. You always have your growing pains early on when you’re repping young players."
