Jordan Swindle says Shannon Dawson is “Joe Cool”

This season, there are thirteen new offensive and defensive coordinators in the SEC, including our own Shannon Dawson. At Media Days last week, ESPN asked players from teams with new coordinators to describe them in one word. How did offensive tackle Jordan Swindle describe Dawson? “Confident.”

“He’s “Joe Cool.” I love being around him. He’s a funny dude. He knows that what he’s got is going to be successful, he trusts us, and he knows how to get the best out of his players. I love being coached by him. He’s a great guy.”

I’m a little surprised that Swindle used a “Joe Cool” reference, but just another reason to like him. Based off his press conference and appearances on Kentucky Sports Radio, we know Coach Dawson is hilarious, and even when he’s screaming at his players, he somehow still does manage to come off as cool, as you can see in his Mic’d up segment from Spring Practice:

47 days ’til football.

    What an off-season for UK!!!
    HUGE upgrade of Dawson over Neil Brown.
    Locking up Big Vince for the foreseeable future.
    8-4 season coming folks…and I think finally some real momentum 🙂

      I’m with you OptimusCat! Dawson has that swag that Neal Brown dreams of.

    Remember he never called plays at WV and a gut from Prestonsburg took his spot at end of the year as passing game coord. He as most know is no Neil Brown
