Maine expected to lose DC Rossi =
Orono, ME (Sports Network) - Maine reportedly will lose defensive coordinator Joe Rossi to the new staff at Rutgers.
The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J., reported late Monday that Rossi will become the special teams coordinator on Scarlet Knights coach Kyle Flood's staff, although the Big East school has yet to announce an official hiring.
Rossi has been at Maine since 2007, serving as special teams coordinator for two seasons before being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2009. He also coached the linebackers.
Maine finished 9-4 and reached the FCS quarterfinals last season.
