The Coach


Brent Dearmon

Head Coach - UNA



Brent Dearman is now the new Offensive Coordinator at Kansas. 

His third year as the offensive coordinator at Arkansas Tech, after spending the previous two seasons on the staff of Gus Malzahn at Auburn University. In his first year at Arkansas Tech, the Wonder Boys produced the biggest offensive turnaround in college football - including a 360% increase in rushing yards from the previous season. Tech's offense was the second-rated offense in the GAC, racking up 36.5 points and 458.8 yards per game.  Along the way, Chris Eastburn,  Bryan Allen, Jabyes Cross, Trey Martin and Arsenio Favor earned all-conference accolades. Dearmon has had a QB make the all-conference list in each of his two seasons at Arkansas Tech. Dearmon’s offense has been in the top 4 in the league in the last two seasons in rushing offense, turnover margin, redzone offense, and fourth down conversions. 

During his time at Auburn, Dearmon spent the 2013 season as a Running Back Analyst and the 2014 season as a Wide Receiver Analyst. While Dearmon was at Auburn, the Tigers posted a combined 20-7 record, including an 11-5 mark in SEC play. The 2013 Tigers captured the SEC title en route to an appearance in the BCS Championship Game in 2013. Dearmon was at Auburn during “The Miracle in Jordan-Hare” hail mary play verses Georgia and the “Kick Six” Field Goal return touchdown verses Alabama. Dearmon brought extensive experience in the high school ranks to Auburn, as he spent three seasons as the offensive coordinator at Vigor High School in Prichard, Alabama before taking the reins of the program at B.C. Rain High School for two seasons. Dearmon won a state championship at Vigor in 2008 as his offense averaged 36 ppg.  He began his coaching career at his alma mater, Bethel University, in 2007, where he served as a student assistant, coaching the defensive backs as the team posted an 11-2 record. Dearmon started for four years at Bethel University, where he re-wrote the school's record book en route to the school's first conference title, first playoff appearance, and first playoff victory. He remains the school's career and single-season record holder in passing yards and touchdowns. Dearmon spent time after college playing in the arena and indoor football leagues as a quarterback. (Evansville Bluecats, Tennessee Valley Vipers, San Angelo Stampede Express)  Dearmon is married to Amanda Dearmon and they have two amazing children, Carter (5) and Isabella (3).

Enjoyed the course. Very informative. Would have like to hear how Brent attacks the specific coverages he identifies. Maybe that would be too much information shared. Still very informative. I enjoyed it.
