Lonnie Teasley

Lonnie Teasley begins his second season as the Gamecocks’ offensive line coach. He assumed that role on a full-time basis on Jan. 6, 2023, replacing Greg Adkins as one of the Gamecocks’ 10 on-field coaches.

In 2023, Teasley’s unit was beseiged by a rash of injuries, many of which were season ending. Teasley pieced together a unit that used a different starting combination in each of the first nine games. The Gamecocks started three left tackles, three left guards, two centers, two right guards and four right tackles during the season. Offensive guard Trovon Baugh was recognized on the Freshman All-SEC squad as selected by the league’s coaches.

Teasley took over the on-field coaching duties with the Gamecocks’ offensive line early in the 2022 season while Adkins was dealing with a minor health issue that limited his availability. Under his guidance, Jovaughn Gwyn earned second-team All-SEC honors from the league’s coaches, was invited to the Reese’s Senior Bowl and to the 2023 NFL Combine and was a seventh round draft selection by the Atlanta Falcons.

Teasley joined the South Carolina staff in 2021 as an offensive analyst after spending the previous two years as the offensive line coach at North Carolina Central University. Prior to that, he worked as the offensive line coach at Arkansas-Pine Bluff (2018) and Tennessee Tech (2017). He also has NFL experience, having worked for two seasons (2015-16) with the Baltimore Ravens, assisting the offensive line coach. He also served as an assistant offensive line coach at Temple for the 2014 campaign.

Teasley coached for three years in the MEAC as an assistant coach and graduate assistant at Delaware State, leading the linebackers (2013) and tight ends (2011-12). He began his coaching career at Brunswick (Ga.) High School as a defensive line coach for three seasons (2008-10).

Teasley played on the offensive line at Hofstra and Winston-Salem State, graduating from WSSU in 2008.

Teasley, born April 6, 1984, and his wife, Carma, have three daughters, Elizabeth, Ava and Olivia.
