One of Brent Dearmon’s former colleagues is reuniting with the Kansas football offensive coordinator and joining Les Miles’ staff at KU.

Kevin Wewers, who used to work with Dearmon at Bethel University, is joining the Jayhawks as a senior offensive analyst, Miles announced Tuesday.

Wewers worked the past two years at Bethel, spending one of those as the co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach, when Dearmon was the head coach at his alma mater, in 2018.

After Dearmon left Bethel to become a senior offensive consultant on Miles’ staff a little more than a year ago, Wewers became Dearmon’s replacement, taking over as Bethel’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Now Dearmon and Wewers will team up again in Lawrence.

Wewers is originally from Scranton, Ark., and holds three degrees from Arkansas Tech.

Some of his past coaching stops were in his native state, too, as Wewers coached receivers at NCAA DII Ouachita Baptist University, and served as an assistant coach and graduate assistant at Arkansas Tech.

Need to hire 'Steve DeBerg' as a consultant to advise quarterbacks on RPO ball handling and deception skills.

Ahh, Steve DeBerg. Brings back memories. You know what's really ironic? The number of ex 49er QB's the Chiefs have signed over the years who have not quite delivered and then we beat the 49ers in the SB. Maybe that's not irony but it feels good none the less.

I like this. Seems like Les is letting Dearmon bring his guy in, take over the offense and call the shots. Now they just gotta find the right quarterback.

I wonder if Ashaad Clayton now regrets his decision to sign with Colorado football program (after their HC exits for Michigan State University HC position).
