Feb. 8, 2018
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU head football coach Gary Patterson has announced former Horned Frogs standout Jeremy Modkins as cornerbacks 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.
