Keith D. Allen (born July 12, 1974) is an American football coach. He served as the head football coach at Southwest Baptist University from 2007 to 2012, compiling a record of 27–39. His 27 wins are the most in the history of Southwest Baptist's football program, which began play in 1983.[1]

Coaching career[edit]

Allen began coaching as a student coach at the University of Oklahoma under defensive coordinator Bill Young and head coach John Blake. After completing his degree in civil engineering, Allen stayed on in 1997 as the graduate assistant, working on defense. From there, Allen served as cornerbacks coach at Northeast Louisiana University—now the University of Louisiana at Monroe. After the 1998 season, Allen then took a position on Dennis Franchione's staff at Texas Christian University. In 2000, Allen left for Quincy University to be the defensive coordinator and special teams coordinator. In 2002, Allen left Quincy to be the defensive backs coach and special teams coordinator at San Jose State University. In 2005, he moved to Southwest Baptist University as defensive coordinator. Allen was elevated to interim head coach in 2007 after the resignation of Jack Peavey.[2] Allen was then named head football coach at the conclusion of the 2007 season.[3]
