Former Grand Forks Central and UND quarterback Jake Landry has been promoted at Temple.

On Monday, Temple head coach Rod Carey, a former UND offensive line coach, announced Landry was promoted from offensive analyst to quarterbacks coach.

"While this change was unexpected, Jake's transition into this on-field role will be seamless," said Carey. "I've been privileged to be around Jake for more than a decade. He's a great offensive mind and will be a strong leader for everyone in the quarterback room."

Landry has been an offensive analyst at Temple since 2019 when he arrived with Carey from Northern Illinois. He was the Huskies' running backs coach in 2018 and previously spent three seasons at NIU (2013-2015), the final two as a graduate assistant.

Landry spent the 2016 and 2017 seasons as the offensive coordinator at the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse, where he led the offense to two of the most productive seasons in program history. With Landry at the helm, the Eagles posted two of the top five yardage totals in school history, while the passing attack led the WIAC both years. He was named the 2017 WIAC Co-Assistant Coach of the Year following the 2017 season when UW-L finished 8-2 to record its most wins since 2006.

Landry spent two seasons as the wide receivers' coach while a graduate assistant at Minnesota-Duluth.

A member of Central's Athletics Hall of Fame, Landry was a three-sport athlete for the Knights. He was a key member of two state championship teams (2005 football and 2006 baseball). He was an all-state quarterback as a senior and the most valuable player of the 2006 state baseball tournament. He was also all-state in basketball.
