David Lord returns to Redlands coaching staff

David Lord has returned to the University of Redlands football coaching staff and will direct the defensive line. He previously coached with the Bulldogs from 2009 to 2011, working with the offensive line and serving as recruiting coordinator.

Lord most recently served as offensive line coach at Millsaps College, an NCAA Division III school in Jackson, Mississippi. During the 2013 season, the Millsaps offensive line allowed only seven sacks to rank 14th in the nation and help the offense to surpass 2,000 rushing yards. In the previous season, the Millsaps offensive line allowed only six sacks to sit seventh in the nation and enable the offense to run for more than 1,400 yards.

From 2005 to 2007, Lord was an assistant football coach at Jurupa Valley High School. There he was part of a rushing attack that was ranked top-50 in the nation and a top five in California.

Lord, a graduate of Eisenhower, started out his collegiate football career as a redshirt freshman at San Jose State in 2004 and then transferred to play for Coach Bill Brown at Riverside Community College in 2005. He then transferred back into NCAA Division I in 2007, completing his Bachelor of Science in sociology at Northern Arizona.

Lord replaces Juan Navarro, who recently accepted the opportunity to become the defensive line assistant coach at Southern University in Baton Rouge, La.
