When new UMass DC Ed Pinkham was coaching at Rutgers, he nearly recruited Denver QB Trevor Siemian for the Scarlet Knights. The article says Pinkham mainly recruited Florida for Rutgers.


This article from December 2016 reports P.J. Fleck let his defensive coordinator handle the "X's and O's".


This story from 2013 relates how Pinkham introduced his defensive system to the Western Michigan players.

Quote from the article:

"The Broncos are hoping Pinkham can find the magic he had at Rutgers, where he was the Scarlet Knights’ defensive coordinator from 2009-10. In 2009, Rutgers led the nation in tackles for loss and was second in turnover margin. The program was also in the top 20 in the country in rushing defense, scoring defense and total defense."


Victor Cruz gets a mention from Denver.

Also drawing interest from the Carolina Panthers.
