With August training camp just around the corner, LFSN reporter Alan York recently had a chance to get a summer update with Flames Offensive Coordinator Joe Dailey.
During the 15-minute interview, Dailey talks about how things have changed for the football program since the Feb. 16 FBS reclassification process announcement and looks ahead to the 2017 season.
Dailey is certainly no stranger to Liberty Head Football Coach Turner Gill, as the former starting quarterback at both Nebraska and North Carolina has worked under Gill both as a player and as a member of his coaching staff.
Their extensive working experience together made Gill's decision following the 2015 season easier when Dailey was promoted to the position of offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. The promotion was the second of Dailey's time at Liberty. After joining the staff as quarterbacks coach in 2012, he was promoted to passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach heading into the 2014 season.
During his time at Liberty, Dailey instructed Josh Woodrum, the most successful and decorated quarterback in program history. Woodrum finished the 2015 season as the program and Big South's all-time leader with 10,266 passing yards. The four-year starter as set a new program standard with 10,690 total offensive yards and ranks second in program history with 59 touchdowns.
