Maryland football head coach Mike Locksley announced updates to his coaching staff for the 2020 season on Tuesday, naming Brawley Evans as the new outside linebackers coach.
“We’re extremely excited to promote Brawley to an on-field coaching role,” Locksley said in a press release. “He’s been a key part of the Terps staff the past four years and has earned this opportunity. Brawley has exceptional relationships with our current players and is extremely well respected in the DMV area. I’m really pleased with our coaching staff heading into the 2020 season.”
Evans will be replacing Brian Williams as outside linebackers coach, who has been moved to defensive line coach after leading the linebackers in 2019.
Evans first joined Maryland as a graduate assistant in 2012. After the 2012-2013 season concluded, the Baltimore native spent two seasons at Morgan State as the defensive backs coach and recruiting coordinator. Returning to Maryland in 2016, he has served as an analyst for Maryland for the past four seasons.
Before his first stint with the Terps, Evans worked as a defensive backs coach at Our Lady of Good Counsel High School, helping the team win three straight WCAC championships from 2009-11.
Prior to his coaching career, Evans was a running back at West Liberty State, earning all-conference honors in both of his seasons with the team.
