Ken Dorsey is one of the most successful college quarterbacks of all time. He's also one of the most beloved players in Miami Hurricanes history. He posted a 38-2 record at The U and won a national championship in 2001. 

After five years of coaching quarterbacks with the Carolina Panthers, Dorsey has returned to South Florida.

Has he taken a job with his alma mater? Nope. Dorsey is reuniting with former UM head coach Butch Davis at FIU. He's now FIU's assistant athletic director. 

On Tuesday morning, Dorsey joined The Joe Rose Show with Zach Krantz on WQAM to talk about this new step in his career. 

“How could I not want to be here with Coach Davis? He was the architect for one of the best teams in college football history," Dorsey said. "I’m happy to be here working with the guys, helping them out any way I can from my experience in the NFL.”

Davis left Miami for the Cleveland Browns after an 11-1 season in 2000. The following year, stacked with players Davis had recruited, the Hurricanes won a national championship with his successor, Larry Coker, on the sidelines. 

2017 was Davis' first season at the helm at FIU. He guided the Panthers to a winning season at 8-5 and an appearance in the Gasparilla Bowl. 

Dorsey is confident that Davis has the Panthers trending in the right direction. 

“Coach Davis is not taking a job to be mediocre. He wants to put this team on the national stage.”

You can listen to the full interview with Ken Dorsey on the Joe Rose Show, and tune in to Joe and Zach weekday mornings at 6am on 560 WQAM.
