Kevin Kane leaves Kansas football staff, returns to Northern Illinois
Kevin Kane, Kansas' linebackers coach in 2015, will be leaving the staff to return to Northern Illinois.
Kane, a former Jayhawks linebacker, joined the KU staff in late 2014. At just 31 years old, he will have an opportunity to become Northern Illinois' defensive coordinator.
“I’m excited to be back in DeKalb with the team I know so well that has had so much success,” Kane said in a statement. “I can’t wait to get my foot in the door and be back in DeKalb calling the defense.”
Kane is the second coaching departure to occur this offseason for Kansas.
