Stansfield spent eight total seasons coaching at Duquesne, his alma mater. He was the running backs coach and run game coordinator from 2009-11, before joining Waynesburg as the offensive coordinator from 2012-15. Stansfield then rejoined the Dukes in 2016 and was the run game coordinator during the career of AJ Hines, Duquesne’s all-time leader in rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. Under Stansfield from 2016-20, the Dukes had 14 total All-NEC selections on the offensive line, six at running back, and one at tight end.
The Meadville, Pa. native played center at Duquesne from 2003-07. He was an All-MAAC selection in 2006 and 2007, and was also a team captain in 2007. He spent one season as a defensive line coach at Howard University.
Stansfield will join a new-look Buffalo coaching staff that named Maurice Linguist head coach on May 7 and has added six new assistant coaches since May 18.
