CFB Analyst Rick Neuheisel Breaks Down Kenny Dillingham Hire

It’s been a busy month for Kenny Dillingham as he takes over ASU’s football program. 

Few understand the rigors of building up a program in their early 30s quite like current CBS college football analyst Rick Neuheisel, who was tasked with leading Colorado at 33 years old. He likened the process to “drinking from a fire hydrant” but has been impressed with what he’s seen from Dillingham early in his career. 

Neuheisel pointed to the work and relationship Dillingham built with Bo Nix that led to the quarterback’s transfer from Auburn to Oregon following the then-offensive coordinator. Nix completed 71.9% of his passes for 3,594 passing yards with 29 touchdowns through the air and seven interceptions and 14 additional touchdowns on the ground.
