UWA’s Lindsey going to training camp with TitansBy Staff Reports Published 9:24am Friday, June 28, 2013
LIVINGSTON – West Alabama assistant head coach and wide receivers coach Desmond Lindsey will be taking part in the 2013 Bill Walsh Coaches Fellowship Program and will coach in training camp with the Tennessee Titans in late July through early August.
“First, I want to thank God for another blessing for my family and me,” Lindsey said. “I would also like to thank Dr. Richard Holland and (head coach) Will Hall for giving me opportunities to prepare me for this opportunity.
“At every successful institution, organization, business, etc., there’s one goal, to promote and sell your brand in a positive manner,” Lindsey said. “This blessing of a position is another great achievement for UWA Football and the University of West Alabama as a whole.”
The Bill Walsh NFL Coaches Fellowship program is an annual program administered by the NFL Management Council and NFL Player Engagement. One of it’s objectives is to use NFL Clubs’ training camps to give talented minority coaches opportunities to observe, participate, gain experience and ultimately earn a full-time NFL coaching position.
Heading into his sixth season on the Tiger football coaching staff, Lindsey has helped lead UWA to three NCAA Division II Playoff berths. As recruiting coordinator, Lindsey spearheaded the composition of the 2013 Gulf South Conference champions.
This is his second experience with the Bill Walsh NFL Coaches Fellowship Program, having worked with receivers and special teams with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2009 under coach Mike Tomlin.
Lindsey and the Tigers open the 2013 season with a 6 p.m. kickoff Sept. 7 at home against Clark Atlanta.
