2009 Football Coaches: Meet Charlie Dickey

MANHATTAN, Kan. Be the first to take an inside look at the 2009 Kansas State football coaching staff as k-statesports.com continues an in-depth look at each member of head coach Bill Snyder's staff.

Each day, a new staff member will be profiled with in-depth video interviews and features, along with a biographical sketch, continuing today with Offensive Line Coach CHARLIE DICKEY.

Dickey, who just capped his fourth season at Utah with an undefeated 13-0 season and a win over No. 4 Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, enters his first season as an assistant coach in charge of the Wildcat offensive line.

Dickey was been instrumental in the Utes’ success on offense and has worked alongside newly-appointed Wildcat offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig for the past four seasons.

He took charge of Utah's offensive line in 2005 and his position has been regarded as a Ute stronghold since. In 2006, the Utes were the last team in the country to allow a sack - going six games before anyone got to their quarterback.

This past season, offensive tackle Zane Beadles and guard Robert Conley were First Team All-Mountain West Conference selections under Dickey and protected and paved the way for quarterback Brian Johnson, the 2008 MWC Offensive Player of the Year and Sugar Bowl Most Outstanding Player.

During his time at Utah, Dickey coached four first-team all-conference players in center Jesse Boone (2005), tackles Tavo Tupola (2006) and Beadles (2008) and guard Conley (2008). In 2007, Beadles and Conley won second team honors.
