Les Miles bringing in pair of new analysts for KU football staff

Kansas head coach Les Miles surveys his team during football practice on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 within the new indoor practice facility.

Les Miles is adding two new senior analysts to his Kansas football staff, the team announced Friday.

A former defensive coordinator at NAIA Marian University, Brock Caraboa will become KU’s defensive senior analyst, while Charles Moore, a former graduate assistant at Auburn, is joining the Jayhawks as a special teams senior analyst.

Caraboa worked at Marian the past seven seasons, serving as defensive coordinator the past four — a span during which he twice was a finalist for FootballScoop.com’s Coordinator of the Year award.

Marian, Caraboa’s alma mater, led the nation in scoring defense (11.5 points per game allowed) in 2018, and was second in total defense and rushing defense that season, when the Knights had three shutouts in their 11 games.

The Knights, under Caraboa, also led NAIA in scoring defense (11.9 points allowed) in 2016, when they racked up 48 sacks (first in NAIA).

During his four-year playing career for Marian, Caraboa, a linebacker, became the program’s record-holder for single-season and carer tackles.

Moore focused on Auburn’s defensive backs while working there as a grad assistant.

Prior to 2017, Moore spent two seasons as a defensive grad assistant, working with the secondary while also serving as co-special teams coordinator at his alma mater, Tarleton State University.

Moore played safety at TSU from 2010-14.

Sounds like a couple of really good gets who will be groomed for upward movement. Having potential replacements in place is a good thing (e.g. Brent Dearmon).

Dale - While I agree with you that it’s important to recruit quality GAs and analysts that can grow into coaching roles, it’s hard for me to see these guys with lower division success as really good gets when we are losing coach with P5 success. Granted, the success was too hit or miss, but that also isn’t terribly different than Coach Dearmon. Still hoping for the future.
