Joe Dailey Named Receivers Coach

NCAA Football: Boston College at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

BC announced Joe Dailey as it’s new wide receivers coach. The Jersey native served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at New Mexico this past season.

He has played and coached in multiple types of offenses, but most recently wanted to incorporate more of a spread offense to New Mexico as their offensive coordinator. Prior to New Mexico, he was at Liberty for seven years, first as quarterbacks coach and then as offensive coordinator for a five years. He began his coaching career in 2008 as a graduate assistant and then tight ends coach at the University of Buffalo. He soon became a recruiting coordinator at Kansas for a year and a quarterbacks coach at Bethune-Cookman before moving on to Liberty.

Dailey is a former college quarterback that played at Nebraska before transferring to the UNC. He was a standout player St. Peter’s Prep in New Jersey, where his stepfather Rich Hansen has been the head coach now for over 30 years. This a great connection for the Eagles to have. Offensive lineman Ben Petrula is a St. Peter’s Prep graduate, as was former BC running back Jon Hilliman.

Welcome to the Heights, Coach!

The news comes shortly after the announcement that former wide receivers coach Rich Gunnell was returning as running backs coach. Brian White has served as the running backs coach for the past few years. This leaves the offensive and defensive line coaches to be announced, as well as the tight ends coach, where Frank Leonard has been coaching for a number of years.
