(San Diego, CA) - USD head football coach Ron Caragher has announced the hiring of Greg Lewis and Cory White to the USD football coaching staff as assistant coaches. Lewis will be the team's wide receivers coach while White will oversee the tight ends. In addition, defensive assistant coach Bobby Jay has been promoted to linebackers coach.

Lewis, who played his college ball at the University of Illinois, played eight seasons in the National Football League. He was signed by the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2003 and played six seasons thru the 2008 campaign. He spent his final two NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings (2009-2010). Over eight seasons he caught 152 balls for 1,992 yards and 8 touchdowns.

On September 27, 2009, Lewis caught a 32-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass from quarterback Brett Favre while falling out of the back of the end zone with two seconds remaining to give the Vikings a dramatic come-from-behind 27-24 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. It was Lewis' first catch with the team and the game marked his debut as a Viking (he was inactive for the previous two games). He received an ESPY Award for Best Play along with Favre. He recently held the position of coaching intern with the Philadelphia Eagles.

"Greg Lewis will be a terrific addition to our coaching staff," said USD head coach Ron Caragher. "His experience as a player and coaching intern in the NFL will be instrumental in the development of our young group of wide receivers."

White comes to USD from Chapman University where he was Recruiting Coordinator, Offensive Line coach and Run Game Coordinator. He joined the Chapman staff where he reunited with Coach Bob Owens, whom he played for at Humboldt State from 2002-03 as an offensive lineman. Prior to Chapman, White coached running backs at San Diego Mesa College for two seasons where he was an All-Foothill Conference selection as a player in 2001. He began his coaching career at Whittier College where he was a grad assistant and coached the offensive line from 2004-05.

"I am excited to add Cory White to our staff as Tight End's Coach," stated Caragher. "Cory has vast experience coaching the Offensive Line and Tight End positions. Additionally, Cory is from San Diego and will enhance our recruiting efforts in the area."

Jay returns for his third season with the Torero football program where he has been promoted to linebackers coach. This past season he was a defensive assistant, and also was the team's administrative assistant and helped with the day-to-day operations.

"Bobby Jay has done a great job performing multiple tasks and duties," added Caragher. "As a result, I am excited to promote him to an on-the-field position as assistant coach where he will oversee the Linebackers."

Prior to USD he spent three years as a Graduate Assistant at the University of Redlands where he coached safeties. The 2009 squad finished 7-2 and ranked 5th in total defense for NCAA Division III. In 2008 the Bulldogs went 7-2 and ranked 2nd in total defense.

Jay played four years (2002-2005) on the Redlands' football team where he competed on defense at safety. He participated on two teams that won Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) titles in 2002 and 2003. He graduated in May, 2006 with a degree in History and minor in Physical Education. He went on to earn his M.A. in Higher Education from the University of Redlands in December, 2009.
