Duffie spent 2012 on Jim Grobe’s Wake Forest staff. Before that, he was secondary coach at Colorado State for four seasons. He was the Rams’ primary recruiter for the state of Texas.

A linebacker at Texas Tech from 1996-99, Duffie joined the staff at UTEP soon after graduating from Tech.

He spent eight years with the Miners, starting as a defensive graduate assistant (2000-01) before joining the staff full time as safeties (2002-03, 2007), linebackers (2004-05) and defensive ends (2006) coach.

Duffie replaces Jason Jones, who left earlier this month to join Hugh Freeze’s Ole Miss staff.

Financial details are not yet known. Jones earned $240,000 as Oklahoma State’s defensive backs coach last year.
