Outside Wide Receivers

Desmond Lindsey comes to Southern Miss after serving as the assistant head coach, recruiting coordinator and wide receiver’s coach at the University of West Georgia in Carrollton, Ga.

During the 2015 season, the Wolves posted a record of 12-2 including a Gulf South Conference mark of 6-1. UWG shared the 2015 Gulf South Conference Title with North Alabama.

The 2015 season marked the fifth straight for Lindsey in the role of assistant head coach to Will Hall. He served in that capacity for the final three of his six seasons on the staff at GSC rival West Alabama. That three-year stint produced a record of 25-11 and two conference titles.

Lindsey’s record of success continued as the Wolves made their deepest playoff run in the program’s Division II history in 2014. A big part of that success was Lindsey’s work on the offensive staff, and with players throughout the roster who were part of the UWG program through his efforts as recruiting coordinator.

The 2015 season marked Lindsey’s ninth season in the nation’s pre-eminent Division II league. Before his days at UWG and West Alabama, he served on the staff at Arkansas-Monticello, a former GSC member. He also coached at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in the rugged juco league in the state of Mississippi.

In May 2012, Lindsey was selected to participate in the NFL / NCAA Football Academy in Dallas, Texas. The program was developed to provide 30 coaches from NCAA schools and 30 from NFL teams with the necessary tools and networking opportunities that will enhance their chances at success in the football coaching industry. Lindsey has twice participated in the Bill Walsh NFL Coaches Fellowship Program. He worked with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2009 and with the Tennessee Titans in 2013.

Lindsey is a 2004 graduate of West Alabama, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education. He earned his master’s degree from UWA in 2009. Lindsey is married to the former Sherita Daniels.
