Assistant Coaches
Rod Carey
Head Coach
First Season
Indiana (1994)

"What has made NIU offenses so explosive the past several years? The OL! From Ryan Diem and Doug Free, to our current group, the offensive line at Northern Illinois has been a major influence on the success of this football program. The NIU OL is based on three things:

  1. Assign Correct.
  2. Fundamentally Sound.
  3. Mentally Tough.
Those three characteristics, coupled with playing to the whistle in everything we do, make up the NIU Offensive Line."
