Air Force tight ends coach Bart Miller and outside linebackers coach Nick Toth have left the program, both indicated on social media.
Miller, whose background had been as an offensive line coach, will take that role at Ohio University.
“Proud to get to work with this OL unit!” Miller tweeted, along with hashtags Bleed Green and Dominate.
Toth changed his Twitter profile photo to a Central Florida one and changed his profile information to read “UCF Football #GetHeuped18 #GoKnights #ChargeOn”
The Knights finished this past season undefeated and proclaimed themselves national champions. It is unknown what position Toth will coach under new coach Josh Heupel, who replaced Scott Frost after he took the job at Nebraska.

They have a scrimmage against No. 6 Notre Dame on Jan. 28, then open the season on Feb. 3 at No. 2 Duke. On Feb. 10 they host No. 4 Denver.
Women’s team hosts 'Pink Game'
The Air Force women’s basketball team hopes to raise money to battle breast cancer by hosting a Pink Game against Utah State at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
The team will wear pink jerseys that will be auctioned online and at the game, with half the proceeds benefiting the Susan G. Komen Foundation. The Falcons are also offering discounted tickets to fans wearing pink.
Pink wrist bands will be sold for $1, and purchasers will be placed in a drawing to shoot free throws to win a pink jersey. Also, anyone who is or knows a breast cancer survivor and registers in advance will be recognized on the court at halftime.
