Coach Fabris played defensive back at Ole Miss before setting off on a collegiate coaching career that has spanned more than 30 years. He was an assistant with Jim Walden at both Washington State and Iowa State in the 80’s and early 90’s. His most notable stint was as the defensive end coach at Georgia from 2001 to 2009. During his time at Georgia, Coach Fabris tutored a number of NFL draftees including David Pollack. Seven of Georgia’s top twelve leaders in career sacks were under the guidance of Coach Fabris.
Bill Snyder and the Kansas State faithful are also familiar with Coach Fabris. He coached the defensive ends during Kansas State’s 22-3 stretch in 1997 and 1998. He is a no-nonsense coach that imparts fundamentals and toughness to his players. He fits the culture and aims of Kansas State football and is an excellent addition to the staff.
