Charlotte 49ers head football coach Brad Lambert named Drew Dayton Inside Linebackers Coach and Dayton joined the staff July 1, 2012.
Dayton, a 2003 Wake Forest grad, has coached at Duke for the past six years.
"Drew brings us a lot of experience on the defensive side of the football," Lambert noted. "He's worked with both the secondary and the linebackers. He also worked extensively with special teams. He's from North Carolina and that was important to us from a recruiting standpoint. He's the kind of guy we want working with our young men."
Dayton, a defensive back during his four-year playing career with the Demon Deacons, has handled Duke's Defensive Quality Control for the last three years. Prior to that, he spent one year at Duke Defensive Graduate Assistant and two years as Duke's Offensive Graduate Assistant. He began his coaching career as defensive secondary coach and recruiting coordinator at Lenoir-Rhyne from 2003-05.
While playing at Wake Forest, Dayton helped the Demon Deacons to victories in the the 1999 Aloha Bowl and the 2002 Seattle Bowl.
Dayton is a native of Spruce Pine, N.C.
