Yale’s new head football coach Tony Reno for has already started building his team — and some of his first picks for assistant coaches come from Cambridge.

Harvard football players received an email informing them that Reno had hired three coaches — Joe Conlin, Dwayne Wilmot and Kris Barber — from the Harvard staff, Harvard senior and defensive back Matthew Hanson told the News. He added that the trio “left for more lucrative offers.” It is still unclear what positions these three coaches will hold on the Yale football staff.

At Harvard, Conlin coached the offensive line, Wilmot oversaw the defensive line and Barber was the wide receivers coach. All three had just completed their first year with the Crimson.
