Army head coach Jeff Monken has named Cody Worley as the team's new quarterbacks coach. Worley comes to West Point after a five-year stint at Kennesaw State, where he was the quarterbacks coach.
"I am excited to welcome Cody Worley to Army West Point," said Monken. "His experience in coaching the quarterbacks in our offense will be invaluable to our team. He is an extremely knowledgeable and energetic coach who will continue to develop our QBs into being one of the best groups of signal callers in the nation. I know that our players will be excited to welcome him to the team."
"Having the opportunity to Coach at the United States Military Academy is an honor and privilege," said Worley. "I am excited for the opportunity to get to work with this phenomenal staff under Coach Monken's leadership."
In 2019, Kennesaw State had the No. 1 FCS rushing offense, having averaged 342.4 yards per game. The Owls quarterbacks additionally averaged 21.4 yards per completion, which was also tops in the nation.
Under Worley's mentorship, Chandler Burks has emerged as one of the top quarterbacks in the nation, earning back-to-back Big South Offensive Player of the Year and Scholar-Athlete of the Year accolades in 2017 and 2018, the first player in conference history to earn both awards in the same season. He also became the first player in league history to finish with both 1,000 yards rushing and passing during the 2017 campaign. Read more.
