FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU head football coach Gary Patterson has announced former Horned Frogs standout Jeremy Modkins as cornerbacks coach.

Paul Gonzales, who had coached cornerbacks, will become the safeties coach, while defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow moves from safeties to linebackers coach.

Modkins served as a defensive analyst for the Horned Frogs the previous four seasons.

Modkins was a second-team all-conference selection and TCU's Defensive Most Valuable Player as a senior in 2005. He was a four-year letterman who made 35 career starts. He tied for third on the team his senior year with 67 tackles while adding three interceptions.

A Marlin, Texas, native, Modkins totaled a season-best 12 stops and a forced fumble in a 2005 victory over Utah to snap the Utes' 18-game winning streak. He closed his career with five tackles, including one for loss, while forcing a fumble and breaking up two passes in the 27-24 Houston Bowl win over Iowa State.

After receiving his TCU degree in communication studies in 2005, Modkins signed a free-agent contract with the Cleveland Browns. He was also with the Green Bay Packers.

Following his playing career, Modkins returned to TCU as a graduate assistant for the 2007 and 2008 seasons, earning a master's degree in liberal arts.

Modkins' brother, Curtis, was also a TCU standout (1989-92) and has been a longtime NFL assistant coach. He is currently the Denver Broncos' running backs coach.

Modkins and his wife, Stephanie, have a daughter, Solvei.
