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.
