COACHES WHO SET A STANDARD

Rick Stockstill
HEAD COACH

Conference USA's longest tenured head coach and the seventh longest in the nation. Stockstill guides players through to graduation with high standards both on and off the field. Bowl eligible eight times in 11 years.


Scott Shafer
DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR

Newly hired former head coach, Shafer brings a wealth of defensive experience to the Blue Raider family. He vows to put a physical, attacking, multiple defense on the field that will excel in fundamentals and tackling.

Coach Rick Stockstill

Two-time Coach of the Year

Has graduated 97% of student-athletes

Bowl-eligible eight times in 11 seasons

TRUE FAMILY



Strength is built through unity, the forging of bonds in support of a common purpose. The game of football brings us together. Sportsmanship and the pursuit of excellence is the promise made one to another.

There are no disguises here. Football is family at Middle Tennessee. We're molding the citizens, fathers and leaders of the future. We must support one another, hold each other accountable and be the example we want others to follow. Coach Stockstill hasn't forgotten: the role of student comes before that of athlete and the legacy we leave behind is the most sacred of concerns.
