David Moody, Lubbock High School Associate Head Coach

It isn't often you inherit a quality coach like David Moody.

He has big time experience on every level, which includes the NFL. He is without a doubt one the best coaches I have ever been around. Yes, he is an outstanding on field coach. However, is off field qualities and how he relates to kids is exceptional. We talk about building relationships with our players. David knows how to do it. You will not find anyone better than David Moody.

Moody Bio:

David Moody is entering his 36th year of coaching. He graduated from Estacado High School in 1970. While at Estacado, he played on the 1968 Class 3-A State Championship football team and in 1970 was an All-State linebacker. He then attended West Texas State University where he played collegiate football and helped lead the West Texas State Buffaloes to the Missouri Valley Conference co-championship in 1972. Upon his graduation from West Texas State University in 1974, he entered private business. He then entered the coaching ranks and coached at Lamar Consolidated (1977-1979) and San Angelo Central (1980-1984). In 1985 he advanced to the college ranks at Angelo State University, where he coached the defensive line for four seasons and the wide receivers for one. He was a member of the coaching staff at Rice University from 1989-1993 where he coached the defensive line. In 1994 he joined Spike Dykes’ staff at Texas Tech University as a receiver’s coach. While at Texas Tech University Coach Moody interned with both the Buffalo Bills in 1997 and the Miami Dolphins in 1998. When Coach Dykes retired following the 1999 season, Moody coached at Lubbock Coronado High School for the 2000 season. In January of 2001, he accepted the job as the fourth head coach in Estacado High School’s history, enabling him to coach at his alma mater. In the fall of 2003 Coach Moody resigned from his alma mater. In February 2004 Moody joined the staff at LHS and remains there today, coaching the DL.

He and his wife have two daughters D’Metrice and LaShaunda, and a son David, III.
