I don't know what to make of this. Just because he was a good player and a good coach, doesn't mean he will be a good AD. People seem to be excited about this hire though. One thing is clear: Butch is bringing in all of his people. We're all in with him.

Maybe there's your successor-in-waiting, Pete-poopers.

I think this is a good move, as he will parlay his Football expertise and help Butch in his program, as well as develop someone with name recognition and contacts in possibly aiding fund raising for Football in particular.

Welcome to FIU, Ken!

Dorsey seems to be already in tune with our players and strengths and weaknesses. He's already selling the FIU brand well, with knowledge, and reaching an audience we wouldn't have been reaching if not for his hiring. Good stuff.

This looks like the AD-in-training to me. Couple years of OJT and voila!

So much for starting to work in April. Ken was out on the practice field today. Hey, I'm all for the most QB coaching help we can get.

While I don't believe he can technically coach, he can recruit and scout, those five years of NFL coaching experience should come in handy.

I'm sure he's not "coaching" but I'm also pretty sure he's telling Butch and the OC what he's seeing. I'm guessing the QBs are also able to approach him on their own and pick his brain. This hire is growing on me.

He wants to coach and will be here until one of our coaches moves on or someone comes calling.

He is not our AD in waiting.

And for those that want Pete out, he and Butch will go retire together in 4 years. So just give it up and enjoy the ride.

Ken is here for two things....fundraising and trying to sway more Miami fans to also support FIU.
