JAYLEN MINNETT

Indiana State football coach Curt Mallory announced the addition of David Stuckman to his staff Friday. Stuckman will work with the Sycamores’ cornerbacks.

He comes to Terre Haute after a season at the University of Louisville in 2019 as an analyst under head coach Scott Satterfield.

Stuckman was a member of Satterfield’s staff at Appalachian State in 2018, working as a defensive quality control coach. Stuckman worked specifically with the defensive backs along with practice planning and scouting responsibilities.

Prior to his time at Appalachian State, Stuckman worked as an intern for the Carolina Panthers in the summer of 2018. With the Panthers, his primary focus was defensive backs and special teams.

Stuckman spent the 2017 season as a graduate assistant at LSU working under head coach Ed Orgeron and defensive coordinator Dave Aranda. His collegiate coaching experience also includes stops at Florida Tech (2016), Louisiana Tech (2015) and Midwestern State (2014). Stuckman additionally did stints with Gainesville (Fla.) High School and P.K. Yonge (Fla.) High School.

He played four seasons at Grambling, helping GSU to the 2008 Black College National Championship and 2008 and 2011 Southwestern Athletic Conference titles. A team captain in 2011, Stuckman was a defensive back for the Tigers and returned kickoffs and punts.
