Butler Bulldogs Hire Baj Kabba As Wide Receivers Coach

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The Butler Bulldogs hired Baj Kabba on July 27th to serve as Wide Receivers Coach. Kabba arrives at Butler after serving as the video coordinator at the University of Redlands in California.

“We can’t wait to get the 2017 season started with Bai on staff,” said Butler Head Football Coach Jeff Voris. “He has some unique experiences and is a well-respected coach. Bai fits our staff and the Butler Way. We are confident he will do a great job of developing our receivers on and off the field.”

Kabba helped Redlands to an 8-2 record during the 2016 campaign, including a berth in the NCAA Division III Championships. He served as the team’s video coordinator, and played a key role in the program’s recruiting efforts in California and the Midwest.

His coaching career began at Batavia High School in Illinois, where he served as the wide receivers coach for two seasons. He also served as the sophomore girls’ basketball coach.
