Kansas football has announced the hiring of Joe Dailey as their new offensive analyst. Dailey has spent time with the Carolina Panthers and Boston College, coaching wide receivers. The 39-year old coach played quarterback for Nebraska (2003-04) and North Carolina (2005-07). He started his career as a graduate assistant and tight ends coach at Buffalo in 2008, before joining Kansas as the recruiting coordinator in 2010. Dailey also coached quarterbacks at Bethune-Cookman (2011), Liberty (2012-18), and New Mexico (2019), where he was also the offensive coordinator for both schools.
Dailey will be providing a mix of college and NFL influences to Kansas’ offensive staff, most notably bringing his experience as Carolina Panthers’ wide receivers coach. He left Boston College for the Panthers after the 2021 season having made a significant impact on the Eagles’ wide receivers room. Dailey helped transform Zay Flowers into an All-ACC wide receiver, while Jaden Williams progressed rapidly under his watch and became an impact player for Boston College’s passing attack in 2021.
Kansas led the Big 12 with 6.97 yards per play last season and is looking to continue their success under well-regarded offensive coordinator Andy Kotelnicki. Dailey will be a great addition to Kotelnicki’s staff and will provide a fresh perspective for the Jayhawks.
Dailey spoke last summer about being excited to work with coach Rhule and coach McAdoo in his role as the Panthers’ wide receivers coach. He had previously competed against Rhule and his staff in his prior stops, giving him a unique view of what it takes to win. This experience will be valuable as Kansas seeks to improve its program and move forward.
In conclusion, Kansas has made a strong hire in Joe Dailey, who brings a wealth of experience to the Jayhawks’ offensive team. His college and NFL experience will help the team stay ahead of the curve and continue to achieve success in the Big 12.
