Dec. 2, 2009

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas football offensive coordinator Ed Warinner was named one of three finalists for the American Football Coaches Association National Assistant Coach of the Year recently.

The honor went to Mike MacIntyre, the defensive coordinator of Duke. The other finalist was Tyrone Nix of Mississippi.

Warinner, whose official title at Kansas is Associate Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks, completed his fifth year at the school, including his third as the team’s play caller.

Under his guidance this season KU ranks seventh in the NCAA in passing offense at a school-record pace of 310.33 yards per game. KU is also 25th in total offense (422.42) and 47th in scoring at 29.42 per game.

In his three years, KU has produced the top three passing and top three total offense seasons in school history. His quarterback Todd Reesing recently finished his career as the school’s record holder in nearly every statistical category.
