DURHAM, N.C. – Duke head football coach David Cutcliffe announced Wednesday that defensive lineman Michael Mann and offensive lineman Kameron Schroeder will serve as undergraduate assistant coaches this fall after suffering career-ending, upper body injuries.
Cutcliffe also noted that freshman quarterback Daniel Jones has been awarded a scholarship, effective immediately.
Mann served as a reserve defensive end during his three years with the program. After redshirting in 2012, Mann played in seven games over the next two seasons, recording four tackles, as the Blue Devils won 19 games and captured the 2013 ACC Coastal Division championship. The Castle Rock, Colo., product booked a career-high three stops in Duke's win over Kansas in 2014.
A native of Elk Grove, Calif., Schroeder redshirted as a true freshman in 2014 and was slated to be a reserve offensive tackle for the 2015 squad.
Jones, a 6-5, 205-pound product from Charlotte, N.C., was a three-year letterman under coach Larry McNulty at Charlotte Latin High School, where he helped the Hawks to a pair state championship game appearances. As a senior, he earned first team North Carolina Independent Schools Athletic Association All-State honors, was a first team all-conference choice and received the South Charlotte Sports Report Quarterback of the Year Award as part of the 4th Annual Charlotte Football Awards. He departed Charlotte Latin owning the school's career records for total offensive yards (8,344), total passing yards (6,997) and total touchdowns (98).
