DURHAM, N.C. – The newest addition to the Duke Football program, Associate Defensive Coordinator and Defensive Line Coach Ben Albert, made his first visit to campus as a member of the coaching staff earlier this week and spent some time with Blue Devil Network’s Dave Harding.

Albert joins the Blue Devils after spending the last three seasons (2013-14-15) coaching the defensive line at Boston College. Last fall the Eagles led the country in total defense (254.3), third down conversion defense (.241) and tackles for loss per game (9.6) while also ranking among the nation’s top five in rushing defense (2nd; 82.8), scoring defense (4th; 15.3) and passing efficiency defense (5th; 104.66).

Prior to his three campaigns in Chestnut Hill, Albert served two seasons (2011-12) as the linebackers coach at Temple University and the 2010 campaign on the staff of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars, serving as an assistant defensive line coach.
