Prior to returning to Bowling Green in 2019, Malone coached at Western Michigan as the team’s running backs coach in 2018 and as the Broncos’ Director of Player Development in 2017. Prior to Western Michigan, he was the offensive coordinator and tight ends coach at Purdue.
Malone spent nine seasons on Sean Payton’s New Orleans Saints staff, helping the Saints capture the Super Bowl in 2009. He mentored Jimmy Graham, helping elevate him into an All-Pro tight end. In 2001, Graham became the first Saints tight end to have more than 1,000 yards receiving and in 2013, he led the league in touchdown catches and the Saints in receiving yards (1,215).
