Kansas offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon leaving for Middle Tennessee

Late last night we shared, per sources, that Kansas offensive coordinator Brent Dearmon was leaving the staff.

Sources shared with FootballScoop that Dearmon was heading to Middle Tennessee State to be the offensive coordinator on Rick Stockstill's staff.

Jayhawk Slant first reported the move, and a number of other outlets are now reporting the same.

According to his contract, Dearmon will owe Kansas $500,000 to buy his way out of his contract. Sources tell FootballScoop that MSTU is not expected to have to pay Dearmon's buyout.

Dearmon was promoted to offensive coordinator for the Jayhawks in October of 2019 after Les Miles made the decision to fire offensive coordinator Les Koenning six games into the season.

He originally joined the staff as a senior offensive consultant for the program in January of 2019 after a very successful one-year run as the head coach at Bethel (NAIA - TN). There, he led the nation's top scoring offense (55 points per game) and they finished number 2 total offense (540 yards per game).

At Middle Tennessee, Dearmon will take over for Tony Franklin, a veteran offensive play caller, recently announced his retirement from the "violent game."

Kansas is set to open their off season workouts next week, and Les Miles will now be tasked with finding a new offensive play caller.
