– The Menlo College football program recently announced that running backs coach Mayur Chaudhari
has departed the program to take a defensive assistant position with Stanford.
Chaudhari served one season on the Menlo coaching staff, coordinating a young ground unit on a pass-prevalent Oaks squad to 73.7 yards per game. Sophomore Eddie Conner led the attack with five touchdowns and 303 yards. The Oaks’ top rushing game of 2005 came in a 58-52, triple-overtime loss at Colorado College Nov. 12. Against the Tigers, Menlo gained 214 rushing yards, collected 6.5 yards per carry and scored thrice. In addition, running back Jihad Mahasin set a new Menlo program record with an 87-yard run from scrimmage.
With the Cardinal, Chaudhari will fill an intern role, assisting with film breakdown, scouting reports and general assistance related to defensive coordinator and secondary coach A.J. Christoff. Chaudhari will also be working with the defensive backs.
Menlo head coach Mark Kaanapu has not yet named a replacement to succeed Chaudhari.
