Waymond Jackson joined the Catawba Football staff as safeties coach in the spring of 2018. He comes to Catawba with eight years of coaching experience, most recently at East Ridge High School, where he served as co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach. He will coach the safeties at Catawba and work with the special teams.

Jackson began his coaching career at his alma mater, the University of South Carolina, in 2010 under Head Coach Steve Spurrier and Defensive Coordinators Ellis Johnson and Lorenzo Ward. During his time on staff, the Gamecocks boasted a combined record of 31-9 and registered wins in both the Capital One and Outback Bowls. Jackson served as interim linebackers coach during the Capital One Bowl victory.

In 2011, the Gamecocks finished 11-2 with a No. 8 national ranking. The following year, South Carolina repeated with an 11-2 slate, finishing the year ranked No. 7 in the country. The team ranked fifth in sacks (47), 13th in scoring defense, 17th in rushing defense, and 11th in total defense. Also in 2012, Jackson directly coach the spur/nickel position for the Gamecocks. The spur that year, Devonte Holloman, was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in the sixth round of the NFL Draft.

In addition to coaching at the University of South Carolina, Jackson spent the past five seasons as a defensive coordinator in the high school ranks. He has coached in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina. His high school stops have been highlighted by one Shrine Bowl selection, one Under-Armour All American selection, a state leader in interceptions, a state-leading defense in sacks, and the Tally Johnson assistant of the year award.

A native of Easley, S.C. and a product of Wren High School, Jackson earned his Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science from South Carolina. He resides in Charlotte, N.C. with his wife, Ashley.
