In his second season coaching Arizona's cornerbacks, David Lockwood joined Rich Rodriguez's staff in January 2012. He came to UA from West Virginia, where he was cornerbacks coach from 2008-11. He rejoined Rodriguez 22 years after working together as entry-level coaches. He has extensive experience coaching on both sides of the ball.
During the 2012 season, cornerback Shaquille Richardson ranked fourth in the league and No. 16 nationally in passes broken up with 14. Lockwood's unit accounted for five interceptions for 124 yards, including a turnover from Richardson in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl that led to Arizona's first score of the game.
His units have recorded league-best interception totals (WVU, 2009), top 25 in pass defense (Kentucky, 2007; Memphis 1999) and a national No. 1 ranking in turnover margin (Minnesota, 2006), among other highlights. He also helped coach both James Madison and Delaware to four NCAA I-AA playoff appearances.
Lockwood's secondary at WVU ranked 11th nationally in pass defense during the 2010 season. Prior to his work at his alma mater WVU, Lockwood was Kentucky's defensive backs coach in 2007, Minnesota's defensive coordinator and linebackers coach in 2005-06 and Minnesota's secondary coach from 2002-04.
He coached cornerbacks at Notre Dame in 2001, defensive backs at West Virginia in 2000 and defensive backs at Memphis in 1999. He coached wide receivers at Memphis from 1995-98, tight ends and receivers at James Madison in 1994, and tight ends and receivers at Delaware from 1990-93.
He began his career as a graduate assistant with the 1989 West Virginia team and earned his bachelor's degree from WVU in 1989.
Lockwood was a four-year letterman and defensive back at WVU from 1985-88 and a member of the 1984 Bluebonnet, 1987 Sun and 1988 Fiesta Bowl teams. He helped the Mountaineers to an undefeated regular season and national championship game as a senior.
He and his wife, Heidi, have three children, Autumn, David Jr. and Jeffrey. Autumn plays on UA's women's soccer team.
