Adam Lechtenberg joined the Tigers football support staff in March of 2012, accepting a position as the team's director of player personnel.
In his position, Lechtenberg has played a key role in evaluating future talent for the Tigers.
In 2014, Lechtenberg was part of a program which went 10-3, equaling a school record for victories set in 1938. Memphis captured the American Athletic Conference title, the team’s first league championship since 1971 and won the inaugural Miami Beach Bowl with a 55-48 double-overtime victory.
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.
Lechtenberg graduated from Nebraska in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Agribusiness and earned a Master's degree in Liberal Arts from TCU in 2009.
Lechtenberg and his wife Kristy have a daughter, Madison, born Sept. 10, 2014.
