David Lockwood (born in Media, Pennsylvania) is the current American football cornerback coach at West Virginia University.

Playing career

David Lockwood enjoyed a four-year letterman career as a defensive back at West Virginia University. Lockwood played in two bowl games and was a member of the 1988 squad that went undefeated and played for the national championship in the 1989 Fiesta Bowl. In 1989, upon graduation, Lockwood served as a graduate assistant for his alma mater.

Coaching career

Delaware & James Madison

In 1990, Lockwood moved to the University of Delaware to become the assistant head coach, receivers and tight ends coach. While at Delaware, the Blue Hens won two Yankee Conference championships and qualified for the Division I-AA playoffs three times. Lockwood left Delaware following the 1993 season to coach James Madison University as the assistant head coach, receivers and tight ends once again. In his one season at James Madison, 1994, Lockwood led the school to the Division 1-AA playoffs.


In 1995, Lockwood became the wide receivers coach at the University of Memphis. Following the 1998 season, Lockwood moved to the defensive backs at Memphis for the 1999 season. Although only coaching the defensive backs one season, three of his defensive backs - Reginald Howard, Michael Stone, and Idrees Bashir - played in the National Football League.

West Virginia (2000)

In 2000, Lockwood returned to West Virginia University to coach the defensive backs under his former head coach Don Nehlen. That season, the Mountaineers finished ninth in the nation with 19 interceptions and defeated Mississippi in the Music City Bowl. However, it would be Nehlen's final season coaching, and Lockwood would leave West Virginia as new head coach Rich Rodriguez brought in a new staff. Lockwood coached future-AFL player Rick Sherrod at free safety.

Notre Dame

In 2001, Lockwood moved on to coach at Notre Dame as the cornerbacks coach. That season, the Fighting Irish were 10th in the nation in passing defense, the only time in 54 years that a Notre Dame team had ranked in the top 10 in that category.


To begin the 2002 season, Lockwood was announced the new defensive backs coach at the University of Minnesota. He coached the defensive backs until 2004, making three bowl games coaching. While coaching the backs, cornerback Michael Lehan tied the single-season school record for pass breakups and corner Ukee Dozier tied the school career record for pass breakups. He was also the recruiting coordinator in 2003. In 2005, Lockwood became the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. The Gophers advanced to a bowl game in all five of his seasons coaching, with the school having played in only seven postseason games games in school history prior to Lockwood's arrival.


In 2007, David Lockwood became the defensive backs coach at the University of Kentucky under head coach Rich Brooks. During his one season in the SEC, Lockwood led the Wildcats to an 8-5 record and the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl victory. The appearance marked his sixth straight and the 11th of his coaching career. His secondary also ranked in the top 25 in fewest passing yards allowed in the nation.

Return to West Virginia University

After West Virginia University head coach Rich Rodriguez departed the team for the head coaching position at the University of Michigan, West Virginia named former assistant coach Bill Stewart the interim head coach. However, Stewart led the Mountaineers to a 48-28 upset victory over the University of Oklahoma in the 2008 Fiesta Bowl. The following day, Stewart was named the Mountaineers 32nd head coach in school history. On January 9, 2008, Stewart announced his hiring of former Mountaineer football players and coaches, Steve Dunlap and Lockwood. Lockwood was announced as the Mountaineers cornerbacks coach under defensive coordinator Jeff Casteel.
