BOWLING GREEN - Former Bowling Green State University standout D.J. Durkin has been added to the coaching staff at his alma mater, coach Gregg Brandon announced yesterday.
Durkin, who will coach the defensive ends, replaces Vance Joseph, who took a job as a defensive assistant with the San Francisco 49ers.
