Stanford announced the addition of Bobby Kennedy and Kevin Carberry to the coaching staff on Thursday.
Kennedy takes over as the wide receivers coach, filling in for the promoted Tavita Pritchard, and Carberry fills in for Mike Bloomgren as offensive line coach and running game coordinator.
David Shaw also announced that Lance Anderson was promoted to associate head coach, taking a role that Bloomgren used to handle.
Shaw released these statements about the new coaches:
Kevin Carberry comes to us after spending the last four years in the NFL and working under Bill Callahan, who trained me in our style of running game, so I anticipate a smooth transition. Kevin is also an outstanding teacher, and I look forward to the new ideas he will bring to us. Bobby Kennedy is a well-respected wide receiver coach who has trained multiple All-Americans and record-setters. Bobby is also a proven top-notch recruiter and a great mentor of young men.
Carberry spent the 2016-17 seasons as the assistant offensive line coach with the Washington Redskins and the 2014-15 seasons as an offensive assistant with the Dallas Cowboys.
Kennedy was recently hired by SMU, but jumped to the Farm after less than a month on Sonny Dykes’ staff with the Mustangs. Kennedy coached Iowa’s wide receivers from 2013 to 2016, which included coaching against Stanford in the 2017 Rose Bowl.
