In his position, Lechtenberg played a key role in evaluating future talent for the Tigers resulting in consecutive bowl appearances and the program’s highest national ranking of No. 15 in school history.
While at Memphis, Lechtenberg played a part in arguably two of the best seasons in program history, combing for 19 wins in during the 2014 and 2015 campaigns. The Tigers jumped out to an early 8-0 record, marking the best start to a season in over 77 years while stringing together 15 consecutive victories dating back to the 2014 season. While a member of the program, Memphis boasted two first round NFL Draft picks in nose tackle Dontari Poe to the Kansas City Chiefs (2012) and quarterback Paxton Lynch to the Denver Broncos (2016).
Lechtenberg came to Memphis from Central Connecticut State University (CCSU), where he served as co-offensive coordinator, quarterbacks coach and recruiting coordinator. Lechtenberg coached two seasons at CCSU, guiding the Blue Devils to a 2010 Northeast Conference co-championship. CCSU led the league in nine offensive categories, including total offense, rushing offense, scoring offense and passing efficiency. He also served as the program’s admissions liaison and academic coordinator.
Prior to his time at Central Connecticut State, Lechtenberg worked as an offensive graduate assistant under Justin Fuente at TCU. In his three seasons with the Horned Frogs, Lechtenberg helped TCU to three bowl appearances (2007 Houston Bowl, 2008 Poinsettia Bowl and 2010 Fiesta Bowl) and final national final rankings of No. 7 in 2008 and No. 6 in 2009.
Lechtenberg previously coached at Truman State University (running backs), Wayne State College (GA/ wide receivers) and Fowler High School (defensive coordinator). The Butte, Neb., native was an all-state first team quarterback, all-state honorable mention basketball player and state track and field medalist at Butte High School. Lechtenberg played defensive back at the University of Nebraska.
