Texas Tech special teams coordinator Darrin Chiaverini has been selected to attend the fifth-annual NFL and NCAA Coaches Academy, the NCAA Leadership Development staff announced Wednesday afternoon.

Chiaverini will be one of 30 NCAA coaches and the only one from the Big 12 Conference to attend the academy, which runs Feb. 20-22 in Louisville, Kentucky, during the annual NFL and NCAA Summit.

The academy was developed in 2011 as a collaborative effort between NCAA Leadership Development and NFL Player Engagement to positively influence diversity numbers in the college game and as a way for talented football coaches to get exposure.

In addition, the academy enables college coaches to meet NCAA athletics professionals, student-athlete affairs administrations, NCAA national office staff and NFL representatives and current and former NFL players.

Coaches are trained during the academy in a variety of areas that encourage effective coaching and improve the athletes' well-being at both the college and professional levels.

Topical education and conversation during the academy can include effective communication with campus and community constituents, the importance of building a culture focused on the overall success of athletes on and off the field, budget management, and coaching strategies and philosophies.

The keynote speakers for the 2015 academy include former NFL and NCAA head coach Dennis Green, current NFL Network analyst and former NFL general manager Charley Casserly and Memphis athletics director Tom Bowen.

Chiaverini is entering his second season on the Red Raider coaching staff after four years at Riverside City College in California. The former NFL veteran and University of Colorado standout will add wide receiver duties beginning with the 2015 season.
