Gary Pinkel Adds Wyoming DB Coach Alex Grinch To Missouri Staff

Gary Pinkel has filled the hole of his safeties coach by grabbing Alex Grinch from the Wyoming Cowboys, a tie that's a bit more interesting since former Missouri Offensive Coordinator Dave Christensen is the head coach there at Wyoming. Even more interesting is that Grinch has not only coached the safeties in that time, but he's also helped recruit from some key regions, including Dallas and north Texas in that time. From his official Wyoming bio:

Alex Grinch enters his third season coaching the Wyoming secondary in 2011. In his first two seasons, he coached former Cowboy free safety Chris Prosinski, who was drafted in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Prosinski was the 121st overall pick in the draft and also earned Second Team All-Mountain West honors his senior season of 2010. For the second consecutive season, Prosinski recorded over 100 tackles and led Wyoming in tackles. He was credited with 108 tackles in his senior season, and concluded his career ranked No. 4 in career tackles at UW with 373.

Grinch joined the Cowboy coaching staff in December of 2008 from the University of New Hampshire. He will enter his ninth season as a college coach in 2011. In his previous eight seasons coaching at the college level, he helped guide six of those teams to postseason play, including Wyoming's victory in the 2009 New Mexico Bowl.
