Joe Dailey Joins Turner Gill's Staff at Buffalo

Remember former Husker quarterback Joe Dailey?  Back in 2004, he was the sacrificial lamb at quarterback in year one of the Bill Callahan experiment in Lincoln.  Recruited to Lincoln as a dual-threat quarterback, Callahan tried to turn him into a drop-back quarterback in his sophomore season.  He transferred to North Carolina where he played under three different offensive coordinators, finally finishing his career as a wide receiver.

Did you count that?  Five year college career.  Two schools.  Four head coaches.  Five offensive coordinators.

And you know what he decided to do after his playing career ended ?

Become a college football coach.

And get married... back in Lincoln, Nebraska...

Dailey told Sports Illustrated's Stewart Mandel last summer that he wanted to go into coaching , so it's no surprise that he's following through... and considering the legacy of former Husker players joining the staffs at programs associated with Nebraska (Nebraska, then New Mexico State under Tony Samuel, and now Ohio under Frank Solich and Buffalo under Turner Gill), it's no surprise that he's now on the staff at Buffalo .

Maybe Dailey's football career didn't go so well between the hash marks.  But it still might have a happy ending.
