SEWARD, Neb. – Alum Reggie Corbin has officially been elevated to a full-time assistant role on head coach Patrick Daberkow’s Concordia University football staff. Corbin will carry the title of “Assistant Football Coach” and serve as pass game coordinator and quarterbacks coach. Originally from Beaumont, Texas, Corbin has been a member of the coaching staff since 2011.

Daberkow’s full-time staff also includes defensive coordinator Corby Osten and special teams/recruiting coordinator Wes Coomes. The four full-time staff members have combined for 43 seasons of Bulldog football as coaches and players.

Wrote Corbin in a statement, “I want to thank Coach Daberkow for the opportunity to now serve the Concordia Football Program in a full-time coaching capacity. As an alum, Concordia is a place that has meant a lot to me and I’m excited to continue my coaching career here. In my role as pass game coordinator and quarterbacks coach, it is my mission to help elevate our offense to a level that allows us to compete at the top of the GPAC. I hope to bring simplicity to our offense so the players can play fast. All the while, I will strive to uphold the ideals of our athletic department and football program and help mold our players into successful Christian men.”

Corbin will have an influential role for an offense that averaged 371.5 yards and 24.6 points per game in 2017, which culminated with a 6-4 record and third place finish in the conference.

Said Daberkow, “I’m very excited to have Reggie with us! He has put in countless hours and made many sacrifices to be a member of this staff throughout the years.  Reggie is as good with X’s and O’s as anyone I’ve coached with.  He has great relationships with the players, and pushes them to reach their ceilings. While he is a phenomenal technical coach, he does a great job of keeping things simple and pushing kids to learn themselves and figure things out.  He is humble and confident and is a perfect fit for our staff. We are very fortunate to get him.”

During Corbin’s seven years as an assistant at Concordia, he has coached quarterbacks, running backs and receivers at various times. He has worked with recent Bulldog stars such as Trey Barnes, Bryce Collins and Jared Garcia. An all-time great receiver, Garcia owns program career records for receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. Collins finished his career ranked No. 2 in school history in rushing yards. Meanwhile, Barnes wound up becoming an All-American on the defensive side of the ball.

Corbin has also coached at the high school level, making stops at Raymond Central High School (2005-08 and 2010) as defensive coordinator and position coach and Maui High School (2009-10) as quarterbacks coach. He has also worked camps at the University of Nebraska and at the University of Wyoming. Corbin’s career has also included work as an adjunct professor at Concordia (2015-17).

A two-sport athlete, Corbin played for head coach Courtney Meyer’s football squads from 2002-05 and for head coach Grant Schmidt’s basketball teams from 2004-07. Corbin was a member of the 2004-05 men’s basketball team that holds the school record for wins in a season (32) and advanced to the NAIA Division II national championship game. In his final season on the gridiron, Corbin passed for six touchdowns and ran for six more.

Corbin graduated from Concordia with a bachelor of arts degree in exercise science with a coaching endorsement. He earned a master’s in public health from Concordia and a masters in coaching education from Ohio University (May 2015).

Reggie and his wife Anuhea reside in Seward with their children Aeva, Reggie III and Overton.
