Duquesne, which has ranked among the Top 50 nationally in rushing offense in each of the past two seasons, has seen four backs combine to post 13 100-yard games since Stansfield's return. Last year, A.J. Hines ran for 100 yards seven times on his way to winning the STATS FCS Jerry Rice Award.
Prior to returning to Duquesne, Stansfield guided Waynesburg's offense to new heights, as the team averaged over 400 yards per game in 2014. In 2013, Waynesburg averaged 387.3 yards per game, including a 283.8 ypg. through the air. The 2012 offense featured a physical running attack that averaged a conference-best 201.9 yards per game while allowing just five quarterback sacks all season.
Prior to his appointment at Waynesburg, Stansfield was Duquesne's running backs coach and run game coordinator from 2009-11.
In 2011, Duquesne (9-2) rushed for an average of 212.8 yards per game - a mark that led the NEC and ranked 15th nationally. Then-junior Larry McCoy spearheaded the ground game with 1,381 yards. McCoy's 117.4 yards rushing per game ranked 11th nationally.
Prior to his stint at Duquesne, Stansfield spent one year (2008) at Howard University, where he worked with the school's defensive line.
Stansfield played center for Duquesne from 2003-07, where he was a member of five MAAC championship teams. The Meadville native, who served as a team captain as a senior, earned all-MAAC honors in 2006 & 2007. He was a Don Hansen honorable mention FCS Mid-Major All-American in 2006.
Stansfield graduated from Duquesne in 2007 with a degree in accounting. He added an MBA from his alma mater in 2010 and completed a second master's degree in education at Waynesburg in 2015.
Stansfield, who was a three-year starter at Meadville High School, resides in Pittsburgh.
