This afternoon, the spotlight shines on a new addition to the coaching staff in 2012. His work is a key factor in the success of the Jets, as one of his new charges in the versatile first round choice, Quinton Coples. Spotlight on defensive line coach, Karl Dunbar.
Born in 1967, he was a second team All-SEC in his senior year at LSU. He was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the eighth round of the 1990 draft, and had a brief career in the NFL with Pittsburgh as well as the Arizona Cardinals, last seen in the NFL as a player in 1995 with Arizona.
Dunbar comes with an accomplished resume as a def line coach. He coached the defensive lines for Nicholls State University and Oklahoma State University in the late 90s and early 00s. With OSU, he tutored Kevin Williams to being the school’s first def lineman picked in the first round in 17 years.
