Selmon was All-American at Oklahoma
EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan State on Saturday hired former University of Oklahoma All-American Lucious Selmon to be its new defensive line coach.
Selmon, 53, replaces Steve Stripling, who resigned last month to accept a similar position at Michigan.
Selmon has been a coach for 27 years. His previous experience includes eight years with the Jacksonville Jaguars and 19 at Oklahoma.
"Our entire coaching staff is excited about acquiring a coach of Lucious Selmon's caliber,'' Michigan State coach John L. Smith said. "Lucious has experience as a player and coach, plus he's enjoyed great success at the collegiate and professional levels."
Selmon played two years for the Memphis Southmen (1974-75) in the World Football League before entering coaching. The former All-America defensive lineman is the oldest of three brothers that played at Oklahoma in the 1970s.
