EWU hires running backs coach

On the day of their first spring practice , the Eastern Washington Eagles completed their coaching staff Tuesday with the hiring of running backs coach Kiel McDonald.

McDonald is the third new coach Eastern has hired since last season. The Eagles earlier added cornerbacks coach Cherokee Valeria and tight ends/offensive tackles coach Brian Strandley.


McDonald, 28, was a graduate assistant last season for Dennis Erickson at Arizona State. Prior to that McDonald was an intern working in the secondary in 2010 for the San Francisco 49ers of the NFL, and was defensive backs coach and strength coach that same year for San Jose City College.

McDonald played cornerback in 2005 at Sacramento State, then transferred to play for Erickson at Idaho the next year.
