Miami Central football coach Telly Lockette accepted the job Monday to become the University of South Florida’s new running backs coach.

Lockette, 37, who led Central to two state championships over the past three seasons, could not be reached for comment.

But Central alumni president D.C. Clark told The Miami Herald via email that Lockett accepted the job and informed his assistants and players Monday afternoon.

The former Miami Northwestern running back standout and assistant coach will be joining new USF coach Willie Taggart’s staff.

Lockette has coached the Rockets since 2008 and led them to a 60-10 record on the field (47-23 according to the FHSAA, which vacated the Rockets’ 13 wins in 2011 for having an ineligible player) and this season became the first coach to take a Miami-Dade County team to three consecutive title-game appearances. Central has advanced to at least the state semifinals each of the past four seasons and has not lost to a Dade team since 2009.
