Alma Mater: TCU
Hometown: Marlin, TX
Coaching Experience: first year
Playing Career: three-year starter and four-time letter winner at TCU (1989-92).

Following a thoroughly impressive year as a graduate assistant on the Horned Frogs' football staff, former TCU rushing standout, Curtis Modkins, was hired as the secondary coach in March.

Modkins is best remembered by TCU football followers as the multi-talented running back who rushed for 2,763 yards and caught 54 passes during his sterling career from 1989 through 1992. Modkins gained second-team all-Southwest Conference honors following his senior campaign.

He still ranks fourth on the all-time career rushing list for Horned Frog football, and he authored four career plays of 54 yards or longer including an 80-yard scoring run and a 74-yard screen pass play.

A product of the small Central Texas community of Marlin, Modkins had crafted a storied high athletic career there, including all-state football honors his senior year.

Upon completing his eligibility at TCU, Modkins spent two years working with troubled youth for the city of Fort Worth prior to becoming a graduate assistant on the TCU staff last fall. Modkins earned his B.A. degree in criminal justice from TCU in 1993 and is near completion of an M.L.A. degree.

Modkins is married to the former Kristi Ford, and they are the parents of a son, Jett.
