Son of Alabama's Assistant Coach, Mike Locksley, Shot and Killed

Son of Alabama's Assistant Coach, Mike Locksley, Shot and Killed”

According to police, multiple people called 911 reporting they heard a single gunshot outside of Locksley's home.

Some in the football world posted condolences for Locksley and his family once news broke about his son's death on Monday, including former Alabama offensive coordinator and current Florida coach Jim McElwain and former NFL executive and current ESPN NFL analyst Louis Riddick.

Alabama is the the third school he's worked at since leaving IL, with two-plus seasons as New Mexico's head coach followed by four seasons as Maryland's offensive coordinator from 2012 to 2015.

Police do not have any suspects in custody at this time.

Former Maryland head coach Mike Locksley's son, Meiko Anthony Locksley, was fatally shot Sunday in Columbia.

Locksley began his coaching career at what was then Towson State University in 1992, where he coached defensive backs and special teams.

Head coach Nick Saban passed on his "thoughts and prayers" to Mike Locksley and his family after the tragedy. Mike Locksley was sacked just four games into that season after three years at the helm. "We'll do everything we can to support Mike and his family in this time of tragedy". He now plays quarterback at Iowa Western Community College.

"I just feel real bad, just like everyone else", junior receiver Calvin Ridley said Monday.

'I just heard. That's frightful, ' offensive tackle Jonah Williams said. "He did everything we asked him, it's just a shame".

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Locksley family.

Alabama hired Locksley in January as a full-time offensive assistant coach.
