Just recently XFL New York announced some new hires, new we’re hearing from XFL Seattle. Zorn and company have added Chip Garber as Special Teams/Linebackers Coach and Josh Oglesby as Offensive Assistant.
Garber spent a season with Zorn with the Redskins as Defensive Quality Control Coach. It’s nice to see Zorn bringing in people he has worked with in the past. Although their record was only 4-12, things may be different this time around.
He then headed north for the CFL. He was Defensive Coordinator for the Toronto Argonauts from 2010 to 2012. He then moved to the Winnipeg Bombers for two seasons.
Oglesby is another former AAF coach, coming from the San Antonio Commanders as a Tight Ends Assistant. He spent three seasons with Oregon State, the first in 2015 at offensive quality control and the last two (2016 & 2017) as a graduate assistant with the offensive line. Oglesby also spent time as a graduate assistant coach at the University of Wisconsin, working with the offensive tackles, tight ends, specialists and scout teams. He was a four-year letterman and three-year starter along the offensive line at Wisconsin where he was a consensus All-Big Ten Conference selection as a senior and helped the Badgers to two division titles and five bowl games. Oglesby participated in the NFL Combine and was a free agent signee of the Washington Redskins, but was forced to retire due to injury in 2012.
