Buffalo Bills offensive guru convention speaker

The Football Canada Coaches Association have added Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator and running backs coach Curtis Modkins to its 2012 convention roster, March 24-25 at Burlington’s Corpus Christi Secondary School. Modkins will deliver a presentation on offensive systems.

The FCCA Convention is a coaching development opportunity which features presentations from some of the premier minor, junior, Canadian and American university, as well as the Canadian Football League and National Football League coaches.

Modkins enters his third season with the Buffalo Bills in 2012 and fifth as an NFL coach. During his first season as offensive coordinator, the Bills were only one of five AFC teams with a 3,000-yard passer and two players (Stevie Johnson and Fred Jackson) with 1,000 yards from scrimmage.

In 2008, he broke into the NFL as a running backs coach with the Kansas City Chiefs.
From 2002-07, he worked at Georgia Tech, coaching defensive backs in 2002 and running backs from 2003-07. He’s also served a four-year tenure at New Mexico from 1998-2001 as the cornerbacks coach.

Modkins began his coaching career as his alma mater, Texas Christian University (TCU), where he served as a graduate assistant in 1995, secondary coach in 1996 and tight ends coach in 1997. As a three-year starter at running back, he rushed for 2,763 yards and caught 54 passes during his career. In addition, he earned a second team all-Southwest Conference selection in 1992 and was ranked third on the Horned Frogs career rushing list at the end of his career.
