FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. – Northern Arizona head coach Jerome Souers has announced the addition of Gary Hyman as the special teams coordinator for the Lumberjack football program.

"Gary brings a lot of coaching experience to Flagstaff," said head coach Jerome Souers. "His energy is infectious and I'm happy to have him as a member of the NAU coaching staff."

Hyman arrives in Flagstaff with over 15 years of coaching experience on his resume. He spent the 2016 season at Indiana State University with current NAU offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Brian Sheppard. While with the Sycamores, Hyman served as the special teams coordinator and tight ends coach.

Prior to Indiana State, Hyman made coaching stops at the University of Kansas, Texas A&M, South Dakota School of Mines, UTEP, and Delta College.

Hyman's bowl experience also includes the New Mexico Bowl (2010-UTEP) and the Liberty Bowl (2014 – Texas A&M).
