Former linebacker Alex Means is returning to Air Force football as a part of the coaching staff.
The Gazette has learned that Capt. Means, a 2013 graduate who was a second-team all-Mountain West selection and later had tryouts with the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants, will serve in the academy's military coach role.
Means will replace Maj. Ross Weaver, who has served as an assistant offensive line coach in the military coaching slot over the past four seasons.
The military coaching slot served as the launching point for the careers of former Air Force defensive coordinator Charlton Warren, now the defensive backs coach at Florida, and current Falcons secondary coach John Rudzinski.
A source tells The Gazette that Means will either serve as an assistant defensive line coach or work with outside linebackers.
Means had most recently served as an assistant at the Air Force prep school.
