Kansas State has added experience to its football coaching staff with the addition of Dana Dimel as a graduate assistant. Dimel played for K-State in 1985 and 1986, and later served as an assistant from 1989 through 1996 on Bill Snyder's initial staff.
Dimel then became the youngest head coach in NCAA Division I football when he accepted the head coaching position at the University of Wyoming in 1997 at the age of 35. In three seasons, Dimel's Cowboys went 23-12. In 2000 through 2002, Dimel coached the University of Houston to an 8-26 record. For the last two seasons, he has been out of coaching.
It's the second time that a former assistant to Snyder has entered the head coaching world and come back as a graduate assistant. Del Miller left K-State in 1995 to become the head coach at Southwest Missouri State, but returned as a graduate assistant at K-State in 1999.
After a one-year stint at Oklahoma State as offensive coordinator, Miller returned as assistant director of football operations in 2001 before returning to the field as a full-time assistant in 2002.
