By Scott Powers
Northern Illinois offensive coordinator Mike Dunbar's duties have been reassigned in order for him to focus on his fight against cancer, Huskies coach Dave Doeren announced on Monday.
Northern Illinois run-game coordinator Rod Carey and fullbacks/tight ends coach Joe Tripodi will take over Dunbar's responsibilities. Carey will be the team's offensive coordinator and will continue to coach the offensive line. Tripodi was elevated to a full-time assistant coach and will be involved in recruiting.
