Coaching Acomplishments

Worked with one of the NFL's most prolific offenses with the Miami Dolphins.

Florida Atlantic

Began working with the program as a mentor to the young quarterback core. In the program's inaugural season he allowed the best to step forward and saw Jared Allen end the season with a rank of 70th nationally in passing efficiency. 2002 saw the offensive line decimated with injury and the team end the season with its seventh running back. Despite it all the offense continued to improve and may have played its most productive game the final game of the season. 2003 saw the offense come together as it came of age. FAU marched to an 11-3 record a no. 4 national ranking by outscoring opponents by nearly 100 points. The Owls averaged 244.1 yards in the air and 127.7 yards on the ground. The squad eclipsed every offensive team mark in its third year of existence. The quarterback core was ranked no. 2 nationally in passing efficiency.
