LUBBOCK, Texas — Joey McGuire put the finishing touches on his coaching staff Monday. Texas Tech announced Marcel Yates would be the final member of the coaching staff.
Yates came from Oregon, along with new defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter. He will coach the secondary, Texas Tech said.
We’re excited about how this staff came together with Marcel being the final addition,” McGuire said. “He is one of the top developers of defensive backs across the country and will be a great resource for Coach (Tim) DeRuyter as we look to build one of the nation’s top defenses. We are thrilled to welcome Coach Yates and his family back to Texas and to our Red Raider family.”
Yates has coached in college football since 2001, working with defensive backs for 18 of those 20 seasons. He stopped at Boise State, Texas A&M, Arizona and Cal before spending last season at Oregon.
