Locklin joins the Jets after nine seasons as the defensive line coach at Fresno State. He has also coached collegiately at Eastern Michigan (1995-99), Morehead State (1990-93), Utah (1989) and Western New Mexico (1988) and for Shreveport in the CFL (1994).

As a player, Locklin was an All-WAC tight end at New Mexico State. He played three years in the NFL (Rams, 1982-83, Broncos, 1987) and two seasons in the USFL (1984-85).

Devlin returns for his fourth season with the team. Before joining the Jets, he coached collegiately at Toledo (2004-05) and in the NFL at Arizona (2000-03) after a seven-year NFL career with the Bills and Cardinals.

Here is a fine example of shoddy reporting/investigation. Locklin was not an All-WAC tight end because NMSU did not join the WAC until 2005. At the time Locklin attended the school, NMSU was a member of the Missouri Valley Conference. Someone basically heard he was all conference at New Mexico State University and looked up what conference they are now in and put that down. Nice work NY Jets PR department.

Is that true?
