Carl Pelini, the elder Pelini brother, is officially leaving Youngstown State for another coaching job in the state of Ohio.

Bowling Green announced this afternoon that it's hired Pelini to be its defensive coordinator.

"I am extremely excited to become part of the Bowling Green Falcon coaching staff, Bowling Green State University, and the community at large," Pelini said in a release. "I would like to thank Coach Jinks, the staff and the administration for all their help in making this opportunity become reality. I look forward to working with the young men in the program, and to developing a passionate, physical brand of defense that will define us from this point forward."

Pelini had been Youngstown State's defensive coordinator for three seasons. He previously coached at FAU and Nebraska.
