MISSOULA -- Ty Gregorak, an assistant football coach and recruiting coordinator at Montana from 2003 to 2009, has been rehired by the Grizzlies.

Gregorak will serve as UM's linebackers coach.

Gregorak spent seven years on Bobby Hauck's staff at Montana and followed Hauck to UNLV in December. Gregorak, a former player at the University of Colorado, was later fired after an alleged incident while on a personal trip to Boulder, Colo.

Gregorak was accused of breaking into a bar bouncer's car and taking a .45-caliber handgun and a wallet. The bouncer told police the items were taken hours after he refused to allow Gregorak to enter a strip club because he appeared intoxicated.

Gregorak told police he awoke later that morning and saw the handgun, wallet and other items in his hotel room but didn't know how they got there. He returned the items to the bar bouncer, who called police.

The charges were eventually dropped when surveillance tapes provided no evidence that Gregorak encountered the bouncer and no car break-in was substantiated.

Second-year Griz coach Robin Pflugrad said Gregorak brings a wealth of experience and credentials to the football program. He has coached offense, defense and special teams, as well as having been a recruiting coordinator.
