WSU head football coach Mike Leach promoted Darcel McBath to an assistant coach position Tuesday, according to a WSU news release.

McBath’s specific role on the team has yet to be determined, but he will be working with players in the defensive secondary, according to the release.

McBath was as a defensive quality control assistant with the team last season. He played for Leach at Texas Tech University from 2004-08.

While playing at Texas Tech, McBath was a four-year letter winner at defensive back and lead the nation in intercpetions during his senior season.

McBath served as a quality control intern at North Texas University in 2016 and spent five seasons in the NFL, prior to coming to Pullman.

McBath was selected in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. He particpated in Super Bowl XLVII as a player on the San Francisco 49ers.

“Darcel is a great coach who played a big role in our defensive success last season,” Leach said in the news release. “He has several years of NFL experience to draw from and will be a strong recruiter. Darcel is very technical in his teaching, and relates well to our players.”

The promotion of McBath comes a day after WSU hired former University of Minnesota head football coach Tracy Claeys as its new defensive coordinator to replace Alex Grinch.
