"I am very excited to bring Mike Dunbar to Northern Illinois as our offensive coordinator," coach Dave Doeren said in a statement. "Mike brings 25 years of play-calling experience, coupled with 12 years of head coaching experience. I had to compete against Mike four different times as a defensive coach -- twice at Kansas and twice at Wisconsin -- and I always came away with a great appreciation and respect for how good of an offensive coach he truly is.
