Purdue Football: Paul Pasqualoni to stay on as coach of Purdue football

Paul Pasquali, Purdue’s new head coach, is expected to remain in his role after the Boilermakers fired head coach Paul Pasqua.

Pasquali is one of three assistant coaches on the Purdue staff, along with offensive coordinator Scott Van Pelt and quarterbacks coach Tim Beckman.

The other two assistant coaches are offensive line coach Steve Jones and defensive line coach Joe Mixon.

The Purdue-Purdue Athletic Department is in the process of naming the other assistant coaches for the 2016 season.

In the interim, the Boilers will continue to hire the coaches they already have, and they’ll continue to use assistants that were hired by former Purdue head coach Dino Babers.

Purdue hired Pasqually in March to replace Dino Baber, who was fired after the 2016 campaign.

Paddy Collins, who has been Purdue’s offensive coordinator since 2015, is the only other full-time assistant coach to have been on Purdue’s staff.PASQUALI, Pasqualois’ predecessor at Purdue, had led the Boils to an 11-5 record during the season, including a 13-3 mark in the first half of the season.

The Boilers had a 9-3 record in the second half of last season.

Pascallini had been Purdue athletic director since 2013.

He previously served as Purdue’s director of athletics since 2011.
