It appears that Baylor has found their new cornerbacks coach. Head coach Dave Aranda announced on Sunday that the Bears will bring on Kevin Curtis to be the new cornerbacks coach in Waco.
Kevin has spent the last three seasons at SMU where he held the same position. Curtis is a five-year NFL veteran and has spent his last 13 years in coaching in the college ranks.
Before his days in coaching, Kevin was a two-time All-American and three-time All-Big 12 safety at Texas Tech before being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the fourth round of the 2002 NFL Draft.
After his professional career ended, Kevin had coaching stints at Navarro College (2008-2009), Louisiana Tech (2010-2012 and 2016-2017) as well as his alma mater Texas Tech (2013-2015) before spending his last three years at SMU.
On Sunday, head coach Dave Aranda has this to say about the new addition to his staff. “Kevin has always been that guy that was a great player, and an even better person. He’s gone on to really learn and grow in the game of football. He’s become a great teacher of the game. I really appreciate that he teaches football as a platform to grow as a person. I know that he is going to be a great addition to our staff.”
