Carlos Locklyn was announced as Florida State’s director of high school relations on Jan. 6, 2020.
Locklyn spent the past three seasons at Memphis, serving as a weight room volunteer his first year before taking responsibilities as an offensive analyst in 2018 and spending the 2019 season as director of high school relations for the Tigers.
He joined Memphis following a successful eight-year run as an offensive coordinator at four Memphis-area high schools. Locklyn’s first stop was Trezevant High School in 2009. He then worked at Westwood High School in 2010-11, Manassas High School from 2012-14 and Cordova High School from 2015-16 before joining Norvell’s staff.
In 2011, behind an offense that topped 40 points five times, Westwood advanced to the quarterfinal round of the 2A state playoffs. Manassas advanced to the 3A state playoffs each year Locklyn was coordinating the Tigers’ offense. Cordova averaged 33.6 points per game over his two years in charge of the offense, qualifying for the 6A state playoffs each year and playing into the state semifinal round in 2016.
Locklyn was a four-year letterman at Chattanooga, rushing for 1,555 yards over three seasons and twice leading the Mocs in rushing while also adding 71 catches for 676 yards. He played cornerback his junior year, tying for the team lead in interceptions, as well as the first four games of his senior year before moving back to running back and leading the team with 867 rushing yards. His average of 123.9 rushing yards per game still stands as Chattanooga’s single-season record, and his 6.5 yards-per-carry average ranks fifth on the program’s all-time list. Locklyn signed with New York Giants as a free agent but was released after an injury and also played in the Arena League following his collegiate career.
Locklyn graduated from Chattanooga with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and is a member of Omega Psi Phi fraternity. He and his wife, Victoria, have twins, son Donovan and daughter Dorian.
