In watching the Army/Navy today I was surprised/delighted to hear CBS sportcaster Gary Danielson talk about Navy's new offensive coordinator, Brian Newberry, and that he was hired from Kennesaw State. The television camera was on Coach Newberry in the Navy Press Box, as Danielson was telling the television audience about him.  How awesome is that....but, hope it doesn't jink Navy in today's game.

FYI...Brian Newberry is in his first season as the defensive coordinator and safeties coach at the Naval Academy.  He brought two more Kennesaw State defensive coaches with him when he left the Owls for the Midshipmen. Here is information on the other two former Kennesaw State defensive coaches who went with Brian Newberry to Navy;

Kevin Downing enters his first season at Navy coaching the defensive ends and raiders. Downing coached for four seasons as defensive ends coach at Kennesaw State, where he mentored a pair of All-Big South selections in Desmond Johnson and Tonarius Portress.   

P.J. Volker is in his first season as the inside linebackers coach at Navy.Volker served two seasons on the Kennesaw State defensive staff and was instrumental in the development of All-American Bryson Armstrong, who led the Big South in sacks (11), while ranked second in tackles (114) and tackles for a loss (12.5) in 2017.
