Dunn discusses move to Baylor

Changes are abound on the offensive side of the ball for Arizona Football and this past week the Cats running backs coach decided to make a change.

Within the last ten or so days Arizona running backs coach Kasey Dunn's life and career has shifted drastically. One day he was the Wildcats' running backs coach and the next he is on his way to Waco, Texas to coach receivers and special teams.

"Last week the opportunity came up so I interviewed and accepted," said Dunn, who has been with Arizona for three years. "After talking to my wife we decided that the opportunity at Baylor is too great to pass up. We are fired up about the chance to go there and we are looking forward to it."

Although he is fired up about the opportunity to coach in the Big XII and his natural position, he went on to say that he will miss the relationships he has built in Tucson.

"We loved our time here in Tucson," he remarked. "I will miss a lot of people. From boosters and Alums and obviously the players, there are a lot of great people here that I will miss."

One of the biggest things for Dunn about the change is the positions he will again get to coach.

"To be able to coach receivers again is exciting," he said. "I like doing that the most and that is what I am best at I think. It is an exciting opportunity."

The chance to coach special teams again was also appealing to Dunn as he had previously coached the special units at one of his previous stops as a coach. But before he leaves town he said that he might try and get additional tips from his colleague on the Wildcat staff, Cats special teams guru Joe Robinson.

"I just might try and talk to JoeRob about things," he said. "Joe really knows what he is doing and he is one of the best around at coaching special teams. The chance to coach special teams again is great and Joe is a great guy to talk to about it."

With Dunn and receivers coach Charlie Williams (North Carolina) moving on that leaves two openings on the Arizona Offensive Staff. Stay with WildcatInsider.com for the latest on the search to replace coaches Dunn and Williams.
