Before his stop in Waco, Texas, Dunn was the running backs coach at Arizona where he mentored three future NFL backs, including Mike Bell who ended his career in 2005 with a third consecutive 900-yard season. Bell finished his collegiate career ranked fourth on Arizona's all-time rushing chart, totaling 3,163 yards on 678 attempts (4.7 avg.).
Dunn was most recently on the defensive side of the ball at TCU where he coached cornerbacks and helped the Horned Frogs to an 11-2 record and a bid in the Fort Worth Bowl
During his five-year tenure on Mike Price's Washington State staff, he served as running backs coach. In addition he was the special teams coordinator his final three seasons. In 2001 he was also elevated to assistant head coach.

He also coached two WSU running backs to school records, with Kevin Brown rushing for a sophomore school-record 1,046 yards in 1998 and Deon Burnett establishing a WSU freshman mark by rushing for 974 yards in 1999.
Prior to that he served as cornerbacks coach at New Mexico, helping the Lobos secure an appearance in the 1997 Insight.com Bowl. One of Dunn's pupils was Scott McGarrahan, an eight-year NFL veteran.
A three-time All-America wide receiver at the University of Idaho, Dunn ended his collegiate career No. 2 all-time in Division I-AA (now Championship Subdivision) history in career receptions (268) and receiving yards (3,847) to Jerry Rice. The marks currently stand sixth and 10th, respectively.

Dunn led the nation in both receptions per game (8.0 rpg) and receiving yards per game (105.8 ypg) as a junior in 1990. He ranked No. 3 nationally with 85 receptions as a senior and was fifth with 73 catches as a sophomore in 1989. The Vandals claimed three Big Sky Conference titles during Dunn's playing career and went 24-12.
