Scotty Ohara enters his second season at Kansas State and his first as the Offensive Graduate Assistant. During the 2011 season, Ohara served the position of Offensive Quality Control.
Prior to his stint at K-State, Ohara worked three years as an undergraduate at the University of Arizona, working with current Wildcat assistant coaches Dana Dimel and Michael Smith.
