Chip Lindsey Joins Kansas Staff As Offensive Coordinator

LAWRENCE, KAN.-  Chip Lindsey is the new offensive coordinator for the Kansas Jayhawks after two seasons in a similar position for the Auburn Tigers.

A 1992 graduate of Bob Jones High, Lindsey is the first hire by new Kansas head football coach Les Miles.

“It is a great day when you can add a coach like Chip Lindsey to your staff,” said Miles. “He has a proven track record of putting exciting, electric offenses on the field and he also has built a strong reputation of developing his players. With the returning players we have on offense and the pieces that we are putting together now in recruiting, we have the potential to be much improved.”

The 44-year old Lindsey led Auburn to a 10-win season in 2017 including a defeat of then No. 1 ranked Alabama having the Tigers’ offense at a pace of 6.2 yards per play. The statistics dropped slightly in the 2018 campaign where the Tigers were 7-5 and produced just 5.5 yards per play. Many within the Auburn program were looking for a change in the coaching staff under head coach Gus Malzahn, who had an extremely expensive buy-out within his contract. When Malzahn’s exit wasn’t going to happen, the ax began in his coordinator positions.

Lindsey was a three-sport letterman at Bob Jones where he was coached by some of the school’s all-time greats such as Ricky Sizemore, Edd Carter, Guy Bowling and Robby Parker.

He played one year of football at the University of North Alabama (UNA) before he transferred to Alabama where he earned his bachelor’s degree in history and English in 1997. He earned a master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Phoenix in 2005.

His coaching career after stops in high school include Arizona State, Southern Miss and Troy prior to going to Auburn.

Lindsey and his wife Cecily have four children- Claire, Caroline, Cooper and Conner.
