    Larry Warner enters his first season as the SIU running backs coach. Warner is in his third stint with the Salukis, following playing as a running back in 2007 and 2008 and coaching as a graduate assistant in 2010 and 2011.

    The job is Warner's first full-time Division I assistant coaching position. He comes to SIU from Carbondale High School, where he coached with current SIU quarterbacks coach Nick Hill.

    As an offensive graduate assistant in 2011, Warner helped coach MVFC Newcomer of the Year and 1,000-yard rusher Jewel Hampton, who is a member of the San Francisco 49ers. The Salukis were third in the MVFC in both total offense and rushing. Hampton was third in the conference in rushing and led the league in scoring.

    In addition, Warner was in charge of video operations for the team and was responsible for game preparation and scouting. He also assisted in coaching the wide receivers.

    Warner began his first stint as an assistant at Carbondale High School after graduating from Southern Illinois with a degree in recreation in 2009. He coached at Carbondale for one season before becoming a graduate assistant under Dale Lennon.

    As a running back at SIU, Warner was an Associated Press First Team All-American in 2008. In his two years at SIU, he rushed for 1,790 yards and 15 touchdowns, while averaging more than six yards per carry. He also returned 28 kickoffs, three of which went for touchdowns. In 2008, he ranked second in the nation with an average of 31.2 yards on 19 kickoff returns.

    Prior to coming to Southern Illinois as a player, Warner was a NJCAA All-American at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in 2006, and led his team with 1,237 yards and 12 touchdowns on 169 carries.

    Warner is a native of Vicksburg, Miss. and graduate of Warren Central High School. He and his wife, Dominique, have two daughters, Penny and Alivia.
