Lewis Named Defensive Line Coach
Army West Point head football coach Jeff Monken announced the hiring of Kevin Lewis to his staff on Tuesday. Lewis will oversee the Black Knights' defensive line, a position group he's very familiar with. He comes to the Banks of the Hudson with 12 years of experience coaching that unit, most recently a five-year stint at William and Mary. During his time with the Tribe, Lewis coached all-conference selections during each of his five seasons and helped three former defensive linemen earn NFL opportunities.
Highlighting those who benefited from Lewis' tutelage was All-American defensive end Mike Reilly. Honored as the 2014 Colonial Athletic Association Defensive Player of the Year, Reilly was a Buchanan Award Watch List selection and signed a free agent contract with the Cleveland Browns following a tremendous senior campaign in which he ranked 13th nationally in sacks per game. Also garnering NFL opportunities were a pair of defensive tackles in Jasper Coleman and Tyler Claytor. Coleman, a 2014 Chuck Boone Leadership Award Nominee, signed a free agent contract with the Houston Texans following his senior season, while Claytor earned a tryout with the Chicago Bears after his first-team all-conference selection in 2016.
