Mike MacIntyre was named the San Jose State University football coach on December 17, 2009. MacIntyre spent the previous two seasons at Duke as the defensive coordinator. His defensive units over the two years had recorded some of the Blue Devils' best annual statistics over a 20-year span. The 2008 team allowed 356.9 yards per game, 67.4 fewer yards than the year before, and 23.4 points per game, 9.8 fewer than the previous season. In 2009, Duke's five wins were the most in a season by the Blue Devils since 1994.

Prior to joining the staff at Duke, MacIntyre spent five seasons in the NFL with the New York Jets (2007) and Dallas Cowboys (2003-06) coaching defensive backs. Working for legendary coach Bill Parcells, the Cowboys returned to the playoffs in 2003 and again in 2006 after missing out on post-season competition during the 2000 through 2002 seasons.

MacIntyre has coached on both sides of the ball, spending four years at Ole Miss (1999-2002) where he started as the wide receivers coach two seasons and the defensive secondary coach in his final two years. The Rebels posted a 29-19 record with bowl appearances in the 1999 and 2002 Independence Bowls and the 2000 Music City Bowl. The 2001 Rebels ranked fifth nationally in pass defense, allowing just 161.3 yards per game.

Along his coaching trail, he has mentored many current NFL players including current Cincinnati Bengals safety Roy Williams, the eighth overall selection in the 2002 draft. Williams was selected to the Pro Bowl each of the four seasons MacIntyre coached him in Dallas. MacIntyre was instrumental in recruiting current San Francisco 49ers All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis to Mississippi.

His coaching career began as a two-year graduate assistant at the University of Georgia (1990-91). He then worked one year as the defensive coordinator at Davidson (1992), four at Tennessee Martin (1993-96), and two at Temple (1997-98).

A 1989 graduate of Georgia Tech, he played two seasons (1987-88) at free safety and punt returner for head head coach Bobby Ross. Prior to becoming a Yellow Jacket, MacIntyre played two seasons (1984-85) at Vanderbilt for his father, George MacIntyre, the head coach of the Commodores from 1979-85.

MacIntyre earned a bachelor's degree in business management at Georgia Tech and then earned a master's degree in education with an emphasis on sports management from Georgia in 1991.

Born on March 14, 1965, in Miami, Fla., he and his wife, Trisha, have three children, Jennifer, Jay Michael and Jonston.
