DelVaughn Alexander
Position: Assistant Coach (WRs/Off. Passing Game Coordinator)
Experience: 2 Years


DelVaughn Alexander enters his fourth season (20th overall) as ASU's offensive passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach.

In his third season at ASU, Alexander mentored All-Pac-12 wide receiver Jaelen Strong, Gary Chambers and Cameron Smith to career seasons. The trio helped lead the Sun Devils to 37 points a game (16th in the nation) and 34 receiving touchdowns (13th in the nation.) All-Pac-12 Jaelen Strong hauled in 82 catches, good for third most in ASU single season history, for 1,165 yards and 10 touchdowns. Alexander’s receivers accounted for 57 percent of ASU’s touchdowns and 61 percent of total yardage.

Under the direction of Alexander, the 2013 season showcased wide receiver talent Jaelen Strong who lead the team in receptions and yards – 75 for 1,122 yards (5.4 rpg/80.1 ypg) and 7 TDs. 

Working in concert with offensive coordinator Mike Norvell, ASU's passing game thrived in 2012 as Sun Devil pass catchers helped first-year quarterback Taylor Kelly establish a single-season school record for completion percentage. In addition, they also caught 33 balls for touchdowns, the second most in school history.

Before joining ASU, Alexander spent five seasons with the Wisconsin Badgers, coaching wide receivers. While with the Badgers, Alexander was a part of two Big Ten championships and five bowl appearances, including back-to-back Rose Bowls his last two seasons. No stranger to the Pac-12, Alexander has coached at both Oregon State and USC.

While at Wisconsin, Alexander saw the Badgers offense turn in some of the most prolific passing seasons in program history. During the 2011 season, Wisconsin passed for 3,280 yards, the highest total in school history. All-Big Ten receiver Nick Toon led the team with 64 catches for 926 yards and 10 scores. His 926 yards were the fifth-highest total in school history. Toon left Madison, Wisc., with the third-most receiving yards in school history and the fifth-most touchdown receptions. In 2009 UW passed for the fourth-highest yardage total in school history (2,770 yards).

Prior to his tenure at Wisconsin, Alexander served as the running backs coach, assistant travel coordinator, assistant special teams coordinator and NCAA rules representative at the University of San Diego from 2005 to 2006 under then-coach Jim Harbaugh. The Toreros, who led the nation in offense in 2005 won their conference title, in 2005 and 2006.

Alexander spent the 2003 and 2004 seasons in Corvallis, Ore., coaching the Oregon State wide receivers while also serving as recruiting coordinator. OSU placed wide receivers on the All-Pac-10 First Team during each of his two seasons with the Beavers. He arrived at Oregon State after coaching wide receivers and quarterbacks at UNLV from 2000 to 2002. He was also the passing game coordinator for the Rebels in 2000 and 2001. Alexander-coached players earned first-team All-Mountain West accolades in each of his three years there. He also coached at UNLV in 1998.

Alexander worked for the San Diego Chargers as a senior offensive assistant (running backs) and also had responsibilities with quality control, video analysis, opponent summaries and self scout.

Alexander began his coaching career in 1995, working as a graduate assistant at his alma mater, USC. Alexander lettered in football and track at USC and earned a bachelor's degree in social sciences/history in 1995. He played for two bowl-winning teams (1992 Freedom Bowl and 1994 Cotton Bowl) and has coached in 11 bowl games (including six bowl wins – 1996 Rose Bowl, 2000 and 2003 Las Vegas Bowls and 2004 Bowl, 2009 Champs Sports Bowl, 2012 Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl).

A native of Los Angeles, Alexander's family includes his wife, Star, and children: JD, Jalen and Drew.
