Stanton Weber comes to Carolina as a special teams analyst after spending the past four seasons on the football staff at his alma mater, Kansas State. A former wide receiver and special teams standout for the Wildcats, Weber spent his first two years (2017-18) on staff as an offensive graduate assistant, and the past two seasons (2019-20) in a full-time role as the special teams quality control coach.
In 2020, K-State blocked the first punt of the game in each of the first three contests and led the country with three blocked punts. In the rivalry game against Kansas, the Wildcats returned four punts for over 40 yards, including a pair of touchdowns. In that game, they set the school record for highest punt return average and most touchdowns scored in a game. K-State finished the season ranked second in the NCAA in punt return average at 22.1 yards per return.
In his first season working with the special teams, the Wildcats broke the single-season record for kickoff-return average (29.5) thanks to a school-record tying four touchdowns, including three from All-American Joshua Youngblood. The Wildcats also had a punt-return score, marking 13th time in school history K-State returned both a kickoff and a punt for a touchdown.
Weber, a team captain as a senior in 2015, played in 46 career games and ended with 19 special teams tackles. He helped the Wildcats accumulate a 34-18 record, earn a Big 12 Championship in 2012 and advance to four-straight bowl games. He also excelled in the classroom as he was a three-time First Team Academic All-Big 12 performer who was nominated with a 4.0 GPA all three times.
Following graduation, Weber worked one year for KPMG as an audit associate but returned to Manhattan to get into coaching. He has obtained two accounting degrees from K-State, earning his bachelor’s degree in 2015 and a master’s in 2016, along with an MBA in 2019.
Weber’s father, Stan, was a quarterback for the Wildcats from 1980-84, and is the current K-State radio analyst.
