Two UNLV Football position groups learning under new coaches.
Lockwood most recently spent four years coaching cornerbacks at Pac-12 Conference member Arizona (2012-15). A three-year starter at cornerback himself while at West Virginia, including for three bowl teams, he had multiple stints on the staff of his alma mater, coaching the Mountaineer cornerbacks in 2008-11, the defensive backs in 2000 and as a graduate assistant in 1989. Having served as defensive coordinator at Minnesota for two of his six seasons in the Twin Cities, Lockwood also coached DBs at Kentucky (2007), Notre Dame (2001), Wyoming (1999-2000) and Memphis (1999) as well as the wide receiver position at Memphis (1995-98), James Madison (1994) and Delaware (1990-93).
"David Lockwood will bring his passion and vast knowledge to an area of our team that needs to improve," Sanchez said. "He has coached at the very highest levels of the sport and served as a defensive coordinator in the Big Ten Conference. He also played during some of the best days of the West Virginia program so he knows what it takes to win and we are excited to see him work with our cornerbacks."
