Eastern Washington didn’t have to look far for its new safeties coach.

The Eagles recently promoted Bryan Mills, who was on EWU’s staff the past two seasons as a defensive analyst.

He replaces Jeff Schmedding, EWU’s former defensive coordinator and safeties coach. Schmedding is now an assistant at Boise State.

Mills was previously a defensive backs coach at Eastern Oregon.

“The addition of Bryan to our defensive staff as secondary coach is something he has worked for, and now he gets the opportunity to show his abilities,” EWU coach Aaron Best said.

The Imbler, Oregon, native was a defensive back at NCAA Division III Pacific, leading the Boxers in pass breakups and interceptions in 2013.
