Northwestern has officially named its new offensive line coach.

Monday afternoon, Northwestern announced that Kurt Anderson will be the new offensive line coach with the Wildcats for the 2019 season. He replaces Adam Cushing, who left his post to become the head coach at Eastern Illinois following the 2018 campaign.

Anderson served as a quality control analyst for Northwestern last fall.

Anderson brings plenty of experience to the position, and he’s got Midwest/Chicago roots. He’s a native of the Windy City and was an All-B1G offensive lineman at Michigan.

He’s served as an offensive line coach at Eastern Michigan (2008-2012) and Arkansas (2016-2017). In between those stops, he was also the offensive line coach for the Buffalo Bills (2013-2015).

Northwestern is coming off a 9-4 season, winning the B1G West and defeating Utah in the Holiday Bowl.
