Arizona announced on Monday that cornerbacks coach David Lockwood will not return in 2016 and UA analyst Jahmile Addae has been promoted to replace him.
The move does not come as much of a surprise, especially considering that Lockwood has been as critical of the secondary as anybody.
Arizona allowed 268 passing yards per game per game this season, which was 10th in the conference and 112th nationally.
Addae has spent the previous three seasons with the Wildcats as an analyst, assisting day-to-day duties of program management with a focus on defensive film breakdown.
He spent the 2010 and 2011 seasons as the running backs coach at the University of Cincinnati and was also a defensive graduate assistant at the University of Michigan where he worked with the Wolverines' defensive secondary and scout team offenseunder Rodriguez.
While at Cincinnati, Addae was considered to be one of the best recruiters in the country and will likely be one of Arizona's top recruiters now as well.
