Duke is hiring Louisiana Tech LB coach Lanier Goethie to serve in the same capacity.

Goethie previously played under Blue Devils HC David Cutcliffe at Ole Miss. In addition to coaching at Louisiana Tech, he's also been a part of staffs for Delta State and North Greenville, and he served as a graduate assistant for Cutcliffe at Ole Miss as well.

Duke named DL coach Ben Albert as a co-defensive coordinator.

Albert will be the co-defensive coordinator with Matt Guerrieri, who coaches safeties for the Blue Devils. The tandem will replace Jim Knowles, who left to become the DC of Oklahoma State. It remains to be seen as to who will call plays for Duke in 2018 on the defensive side, but both will have a hand in running their defense as they try and compete in the ACC next season.

Ohio State redshirt freshman OL Jack Wohlabaugh transferred to Duke.

Wohlabaugh (6'4/293) ranked as a four-star prospect coming out of high school in the winter of 2016. After redshirting during his first year on campus, he was unable to crack the August two-deep and ultimately did not play a snap during the 2017 season. He'll have to sit out the 2018 season at Duke in order to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations and will have two years eligibility remaining to his fair name come the start of the 2019 campaign.

Duke junior WR T.J. Rahming caught four passes for 62 yards and a touchdown in Tuesday's 36-14 win over NIU in the Quick Lane Bowl.

Rahming snapped a 14-14 tie with his 33-yard touchdown grab with 6:17 to play in the first half. The 5-foot-10, 165-pound junior owns a 66-795-3 receiving line for the year. It was a solid showing, though not quite up to what some were predicting over the summer. Rahming, should he declare for the draft, would be a likely UDFA candidate.

Duke senior RB Shaun Wilson rushed for 75 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries in Tuesday's 36-14 win over NIU in the Quick Lane Bowl.

Wilson scored his touchdown from one yard out with 3:21 remaining in the first quarter. The score, itself, was unremarkable, but it's what led up to it that had the crowd in Detroit buzzing. That's courtesy of NIU's outrageous fake punt attempt on fourth-and-18, with Northern Illinois P Matt Ference flinging the ball to the right sideline while a hopeless wideout target attempted in vain to catch the lost cause. All of this gave Duke the ball on their own 11. OK then, Huskies. Wilson wraps his senior campaign having rushed for 818 yards and six touchdowns. The 5-foot-9, 180-pounder has been steady as a metronome for the course of his career, having never rushed for fewer than 420 yards and never more than this year's 818. He'll be fighting for a selection in the later rounds of the draft come the spring.

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 27-of-40 passes for 252 yards and two touchdowns while adding 88 yards and a touchdown rushing in Tuesday's 36-14 win over NIU in the Quick Lane Bowl.

Jones has been maddeningly turnover-prone during his career at Duke, but at least for Tuesday, he managed to keep the ball in the proper hands. His first touchdown in the Quick Lane Bowl came midway through the first quarter, when the redshirt sophomore took it in from one yard out on fourth down. He went on to throw both of his touchdown passes in the second quarter. Jones finishes the year the owner of a 14/11 TD/INT ratio. He's thrown 20 picks in two years. Despite flashes in spots, we're still waiting for a little more consistency. Should Jones declare for the draft, he's a potential early Day 3 pick, with some mobility towards the third round.

Duke redshirt sophomore PK/P Austin Parker has been dismissed from the program.

According to the press release, Parker was dismissed due to a "violation of university academic policy." The redshirt sophomore served as both the starting punter and place-kicker for the team this season. He connected on 17-of-21 boots while averaging a smidge over 42 yards per punt. The Blue Devils will likely now have to turn to William Holmquist (kicker) and Parker Boehme (punter) for their Quick Loans Bowl date with Northern Illinois on Dec. 26.

ESPN's Chris Low told Tennessee he is not interested in their head coaching vacancy.

Cutcliffe was approached by Volunteer officials but told them no thank you. Apparently the Duke coach was Tennessee's immediate target after backing out of an agreement with Greg Schiano. Cutcliffe is on his 10th year coaching Duke.

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 25-of-43 passes for 346 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 31-23 win over Wake Forest.

In a fun -- if occasionally wobbly -- performance, Jones hit on two of his three touchdown passes in the second half and also added a second-half rushing touchdown to help Duke (6-6) achieve bowl eligibility. Both the 346 passing yards and the three touchdown tosses represented season bests for the 6-foot-5, 215-pounder redshirt sophomore.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline declares that Duke redshirt sophomore LB Joe Giles-Harris "has quietly been one of the most productive linebackers on the college field this season."

The analyst has long been a fan of Giles-Harris', stating over the summer that the linebacker could be a Day 2 pick "if he continues to improve." Mission accomplished on the improvement front. Giles-Harris has 110 tackles, 14 TFL, six quarterback hurries and five pass breakups in eleven games this year. Pauline sees an "explosive run and chase linebacker who shows outstanding pursuit speed and the ability to cover tight ends or running backs down the field." Pauline currently projects Giles-Harris as a Day 2 pick and three-down NFL linebacker with a "nice degree of scheme versatility."

Duke redshirt freshman RB Brittain Brown carried the ball 14 times for 116 yards and a touchdown in a 43-20 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday.

Brown (6'1/200) also added three catches for 31 yards. It's the first time that the freshman tailback has gone over 100 yards since the season opener against North Carolina Central. It's also the first time that he's had double-digit carries since October 7 against Virginia. Brown will hope to make it back-to-back strong games next week when Duke finishes their season and qualify for a bowl with a win against Wake Forest.

Duke sophomore RB Shaun Wilson rushed for 73 yards on 11 carries, caught three balls for 36 yards and two touchdowns and threw for a four-yard touchdown in Saturday's 43-20 win over Georgia Tech.

Wilson was everywhere today. We want to talk about the passing touchdown, because it was a slick bit of play-calling by offensive coordinator Zac Roper. On Georgia Tech's 4-yard line, QB Daniel Jones handed the ball to Wilson, who took a few steps towards the line of scrimmage before floating a jump pass to a wide-open TE Daniel Helm. That gave Duke a 36-20 lead early in the fourth quarter and essentially put the game out of hand. Duke closes out the regular season at Wake Forest next week.

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones went 18-for-26 for 177 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 43-20 win over Georgia Tech.

Jones was also killer when he got out of the pocket, rushing for 91 yards, including a 32-yard touchdown scamper. We've been underwhelmed with him so far this season, but showings like this display Jones' (6'5/215) tools. He's big and athletic, but his game inside the pocket needs work. The 5-6 Blue Devils must upset Wake Forest next week on the road to go bowling.

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 19-of-29 passes for 164 yards and an interception while rushing for 22 yards and a score in Saturday's 21-16 loss to Army.

We came into the campaign with higher hopes for both Jones and his Duke team, but both have underwhelmed in 2017. Jones owns a poor 8/8 TD/INT ratio and is averaging well less than 6.0 YPA. With the lack of explosion, you'd think his completion percentage would have spiked. Not so. After completing 62.8-percent of his passes last year, he's a shade under 54.0-percent this year.

Duke redshirt sophomore QB Daniel Jones completed 10-of-24 passes for 82 yards and an interception while rushing for 65 yards in Saturday's 24-3 loss to Virginia Tech.

While Jones did manage to do a decent job as a runner, this was a punch-less, embarrassing performance by the Blue Devils on the whole. They finished with just 183 yards of total offense as a team. With the loss, Duke has now dropped five consecutive games. They'll be off on a much-needed bye next weekend.
