— Baker University announced Tuesday that co-offensive coordinator Kendall Bradley has accepted a position as offensive quality control coach at Missouri.

“Kendall has jumped on a nice opportunity for him and his family at the University of Missouri,” Baker coach Mike Grossner said in a statement. “He will be working with a fine staff that includes one of our own, Mack Brown.”

Brown, a record-setting quarterback at Baker, is currently in his second season as a graduate assistant coach at Missouri, which will now have two former Baker quarterbacks on the staff.

Bradley, who played quarterback at Baker from 2004-2008, helped direct a passing offense that ranked first in the Heart of America Athletic Conference in 2011. Sophomore quarterback Jake Morse was named HAAC co-offensive player of the year in Bradley’s first season coaching quarterbacks.

“This is why we do what we do as coaches — to help others achieve their dreams,” Grossner said. “He has prepared himself well in all areas to achieve his goals in our profession, and we wish him the best of luck.”

Bradley joins Matt Brock as Baker assistants who have left the staff to join D-1 schools this offseason. Brock left the Wildcats to be the defensive quality control coach for the Red Raiders in June.

Baker filled these two voids with former Indianapolis Colts and University of Kansas player Tony Blevins, who was named the new secondary coach, and Baker alum Andy Bibb, who has been brought on as the new offensive line coach.

“We expect both guys will continue the tradition of a very impressive group of young coaches/players that we have had at our university in the past decade,” Grossner said.
