Jaguars hire DeWayne Walker as secondary coach, according to report

John Reed-US PRESSWIRE

Walker has previous experience coaching defensive backs for the Patriots, Giants and Redskins.

The Jaguars filled their secondary coach position on Tuesday by hiring a collegiate head coach as DeWayne Walker will leave his position as the head coach of the New Mexico State Aggies to take the position, according to Zach Barnett of Football Scoop.

Walker, 52, had a professional playing career in the CFL and USFL before entering the coaching ranks in 1988. After 10 years at the collegiate level, Walker joined the New England Patriots as a defensive backs coach and made stops with the USC Trojans, New York Giants and Washington Redskins at the same position before he was named the defensive coordinator for the UCLA Bruins.

On Dec. 31, 2008, Walker was named the head coach at NMSU but was very unsuccessful at turning the poor football school around. In four seasons, he posted a combined record of 10-40 before leaving to accept the Jaguars job.

Tony Oden served as the secondary coach for the Jaguars in 2012 after holding the same position with the New Orleans Saints in 2011.
