FULL BIOGRAPHY

A 12-year collegiate coaching veteran, Kerry Dixon is in his first season as wide receivers coach at Georgia Tech.

Dixon came to The Flats from Toledo, where he was running backs coach in 2018.

Prior to Toledo, he was the wide receivers coach at Florida from 2015-17, where he was named one of the nation’s top 25 recruiters by Rivals. Dixon and Georgia Tech head coach Geoff Collins were on the Florida staff together in 2015 and 2016 (Collins served as the Gators’ defensive coordinator).

In his lone season as running backs coach at Toledo, Dixon helped the Rockets compile the Mid-American Conference’s No. 2 rushing offense (223.6 ypg) and earn a berth in the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl, while mentoring three different RBs (all underclassmen) that rushed for at least 500 yards on the season.

Prior to his arrival at Toledo, he spent three seasons as wide receivers coach at Florida, where he mentored two of the three freshmen to ever record 100-yard receiving games for the Gators (Antonio Callaway in 2015 and Tyrie Cleveland in 2016). Under Dixon’s tutelage, Callaway, now a member of the NFL’s Cleveland Browns, went on to become the third-fastest UF player to reach 1,000 career receiving yards (17 games).

Dixon’s coaching career also includes successful stints as an assistant at Florida International (2014 – running backs), Florida Atlantic (2012-13 – running backs), Montana State (2010-11 – running backs), Stillman (2009 – offensive coordinator), Texas Southern (2008 – quarterbacks), Morgan State (2007 – quarterbacks) and Booker T. Washington H.S. in Houston, Texas (2005-06 – assistant coach).

A Houston native, Dixon played quarterback and wide receiver at Baylor (2000-01) and Hampton (2002-03). He made two starts at QB as a freshman at Baylor and was a team captain as a senior signal-caller at Hampton. He received a bachelor’s degree in political science from Hampton in 2004. Dixon and his wife, Robin, have three children: Charlee, Kerry and Rylee.
