Another name that wasn’t added to the list of potential offensive coordinators in yesterday’s Wake Up is current Duke Offensive Coordinator Kevin JohnsJohns has coached both wide receivers and quarterbacks in his coaching career. Johns was a former wide receiver for Dayton College in Ohio.

Johns is versed in the Air Raid offense and prior to being hired by the Blue Devils, was the offensive coordinator for Memphis. The 46 year old Johns has also been the OC for Western Michigan, Texas Tech and Indiana in which he served as play caller from 2011 to 2016.

This past season, Johns led the Blue Devils to 5th in the ACC in scoring averaging 32.8 points per game. Duke was also third in the ACC in terms of rushing (184.1) and fourth averaging 415 total yards a game. Each of those categories ranked higher than the Hurricanes in 2022.

On October 22, 22 the Duke Blue Devils defeated the Miami Hurricanes 45-21 at Hard Rock Stadium.
