Oklahoma State wasted no time after losing offensive line coach Josh Henson to the Aggies yesterday. Mike Gundy announced this afternoon that they have hired former Kansas State offensive line coach Charlie Dickey.
I'm excited to add Charlie Dickey to our FB FAMILY as offensive line coach. I've tried to hire Coach Dickey before but was unsuccessful because of his loyalty to Coach Snyder at Kansas State. Coach Dickey will be here on Monday meeting with our offensive lineman. #GoPokes— Mike Gundy (@CoachGundy) February 9, 2019
Dickey coached at Kansas State for 10 season and was co-offensive coordinator to Bill Snyder last year. During his time in Manhattan, Dickey coached 22 K-State lineman to All-Big 12 teams and sent numerous linemen to the NFL.
As Gundy noted in his tweet, he had previously tried to hire Dickey away from K-State before. He finally succeeded this time after Dickey was not kept on staff by new head coach Chris Klieman after Bill Snyder retired.
During his 30-year professional career, Dickey also had stops coaching offensive lines at Washington, Utah, and Arizona.
