Tight Ends/Special Teams Coordinator
(Minnesota State-Mankato, 2002)
Second Year at KU
One of two assistants whom Turner Gill brought from Buffalo is Aaron Stamn, who is entering his second year at Kansas and is responsible for coaching the tight ends and serving as the special teams coordinator.
Stamn spent the previous four seasons at Buffalo where he was part of the first MAC Championship team in school history. For the first three seasons he coached tight ends and was the special teams coordinator. In 2009 he served as the offensive line coach for the Bulls.
In 2009 his offensive line allowed the fewest amount of sacks in the five years of the Turner Gill era. The team also produced the most rushing yards in five years that season.
The Buffalo special teams provided many highlights during his tenure, blocking seven kicks in 2006 and five more in 2007. In 2007 Buffalo finished 22nd in the country in net punting. In 2008 the team finished 17th nationally in punt returns.
Stamn coached the school's individual season and career scoring leader, as well as punter Ben Woods, who was a Ray Guy Award finalist and signed a free agent contract with the Cleveland Browns. In 2006 Naaman Rooseelt finished in the top 20 nationally in both punt and kickoff returns.
Stamn spent two years as a graduate assistant at Nebraska assisting with the defensive line from 2004-05. In 2005 the Huskers registered a nation-leading 50 sacks and went on to earn an Alamo Bowl victory against Michigan.
He began his coaching career as a student at Minnesota State-Mankato, helping out the program for two years. He worked with the offensive line in 2000 and the defensive backs in 2001.
Stamn was named a graduate assistant at St. Cloud State and worked with the defensive line and linebackers. The Huskies were ranked third in Division II in rushing defense in 2002 and were a combined 16-6 in his two seasons there.
Stamn earned a degree in physical education with a minor in coaching at Minnesota State-Mankato in 2002. He has worked on obtaining a master's degree in sports management.
Married to the former Courtney Skelton, the Stamns have three sons, Rylan, Jackson and Cooper.
