Lawrence, KS – According to the statement, Lee Grimes will fill the position left open by Luke Meadows in November.
The head coach, Les Miles, said:
“Lee is an impressive coach who will bring a lot of passion and energy to the offensive line position room. He was a great player at Brownwood High School in Texas and one that I recruited heavily when I was head coach at Oklahoma State. Lee comes highly recommended as a coach, and has worked with some great offensive coaches including Jimbo Fisher, Josh Henson and Jim Turner.”
The new offensive line coach joins KU after spending the 2020 season as the offensive line coach at UNC Charlotte. Before that, he spent three seasons (2017-2019) on the coaching staff at Texas A&M, where he previously played his college career. Grimes served as a senior offensive analyst and graduate assistant working with the offensive line for the Aggies.
Lee Grimes also made stops in his coaching career with the University of Arkansas at Monticello in 2011, Lubbock Estacado High School in 2012, East Texas Baptist University from 2013-2015 and Minnesota in 2016.
