Louisiana Tech Adds Two Football Assistant Coaches

Curtis, Joseph join football staff

Spring Scrimmage No. 1

Pictures from Louisiana Tech's first spring scrimmage of 2012.

Kevin Curtis enters his third season as the cornerbacks coach at Louisiana Tech.

His cornerbacks had anything but a "sophomore slump" in their second year under his direction as Tech's defense ranked third in the nation in both interceptions and pick-sixes. The highlight of those interceptions - and the kick-start to winning at Utah State - was Terry Carter's 22-yard interception return for a touchdown.

In his first season, the Bulldogs tallied 12 interceptions as Ryan Williams led the Tech cornerbacks with two.

Curtis joined the LA Tech staff in 2010 after serving two years at Navarro Junior College where he coached the secondary.

While at Navarro, Curtis' teams went 21-2, won two conference championships and were the 2009 C.H.A.M.P.S. Heart of Texas Bowl champions. Curtis' teams were ranked first in the country in interceptions and had five all-conference honorees while he recruited the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and West Texas areas.

Curtis was a two-time All-American and three-time All-Big 12 safety at Texas Tech, playing for the Red Raiders when Dykes was on the Texas Tech staff. After a successful collegiate career, Curtis was drafted in the fourth round of the NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers, where he spent three seasons. After one year with the Houston Texans, Curtis played two years as the team captain for the Cologne Centurions of NFL Europe before returning to the United States to coach.

"I am very pleased to bring Kevin Curtis on our staff," Dykes said. "I had an opportunity to work with and get to know him at Texas Tech where he was a great player. Kevin is an outstanding person whom I had the chance to see coach when I recruited the Navarro area and I knew it wouldn't be long before he was a highly sought-after coach on the Division I level. He is a great recruiter and will be a very strong, positive role model for our players."
