1977 Profile: Kay Dalton

Receivers Coach
"Formerly head coach of the CFL Montreal Alouettes, Kay Dalton is new to the Buffalo staff this year.
The Moab, Utah product who played collegiately at Colorado State, succeeds Jim LaRue as the Bills' receivers coach. Dalton comes from the Denver Broncos organization where he spent the last three seasons in a similar capacity, developing such Bronco standouts as All-Pro tight end Riley Odoms and sensational Rick Upchurch, an All-Rookie pick in 1975.
Dalton's first coaching job was at Trinidad State Junior College where he directed the football program for two years (1958-60). He subsequently served as head coach at Western State College for five seasons (1961-65). Montreal was Dalton's next stop, joining the Alouettes as an assistant in 1966. He became the head coach a year later and remained in that capacity through 1969. A year later, Dalton was still in the CFL but as offensive coordinator of the British Columbia Lions.
Kay left Canada for a job on the offensive staff at the University of Colorado. He went to the Broncos in a scouting capacity after two seasons in Boulder and, a year later, was on the Denver coaching staff. The ex-tight end did not play professionally but has eight years of experience as a coach in the NFL and CFL."
