Former Baylor School head coach David Bibee is joining the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football staff as a defensive assistant, first-year Mocs coach Rusty Wright announced Thursday. Bibee was the Mocs' secondary coach under Rodney Allison in 2006 and '07 and spent the next 10 years as an assistant at Middle Tennessee State University.

"We are very excited to hire someone with David Bibee's experience to our staff," Wright said in a UTC release. "He has coached at all levels and had success at every stop. He loves Chattanooga and wants to be part of what we are building at UTC."

Bibee began his coaching career as a student assistant at the University of Tennessee in 1977. His stops also include Ole Miss (1978), North Alabama (1979), Austin Peay (1981-82), Appalachian State (1984-88), South Carolina (1989-93), Tennessee Tech (1996), Clemson (1997-98) and East Tennessee State (1999).

He was head coach at Baylor School for five years and led the Red Raiders to the TSSAA Division II state semifinals in 2000 and 2005, his first and last seasons. Among the notable Red Raiders during Bibee's tenure was offensive lineman Jacques McClendon, who went on to play at UT and in the NFL.

Bibee coached defensive backs at MTSU in 1980, and in his second stint at the Murfreesboro school (2008-17), he worked with safeties every season but his last, when he was in charge of linebackers for the Conference USA program. He coached Blue Raiders star Kevin Byard — his 19 interceptions set a program record, and he's entering his fourth season with the Tennessee Titans — and MTSU's secondary ranked 44th nationally in pass defense in 2011.

Bibee was a four-year letter winner at UT (1973-76), where he graduated with a degree in health education in 1977.
