FULL BIOGRAPHY

Edward Thompson is entering his first season with Georgia Tech football after being announced as player development coach during the summer of 2019.

Thompson joins Georgia Tech after completing an internship with New York Giants, where he assisted with the team’s offseason workouts through rookie/mini-camp, and worked directly with running backs, defensive backs and wide receivers. Prior to the Giants, Thompson worked as an assistant strength and conditioning coach at Austin Peay State University, where he oversaw the weight gain/weight loss program for all football student-athletes and worked in team speed/change of direction development.

Before coaching, Thompson was a defensive back at Louisiana Lafayette. His work on the field led to an internship with the Ragin’ Cajuns, working with football, track and field and women’s basketball before moving to intern at the University of Houston’s football team.

A Houston, Texas native, Thompson earned a bachelor’s degree from Louisiana Lafayette in 2018. He and his wife, Moriah, currently reside in Atlanta.
