Jaimie Thomas (Maryland '09) joined the Red Devil coaching staff in the fall of 2018. Thomas was selected in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts as the 236th overall pick. He spent the 2009 season on the Colts' practice squad and was re-signed to a future contract in 2010.
He played in eight games for the Colts in 2010 but spent the entire 2011 season on injured reserve. He went on to play for the Los Angeles Kiss of the Arena Football League and returned to his hometown in 2014 to join the Harrisburg Stampede of the Professional Indoor Football League.
Thomas is a 2009 graduate of the University of Maryland. After redshirting in 2004, he played for three seasons on the offensive line, earning a starting role in 2008. He played in all 13 games in 2006 and 2008 and saw action in eight games in 2007 before suffering season ending injury.
In 2008, the offensive line allowed Da’Rel Scott to rush for 1,133 yards and Chris Turner to throw for 2,516 yards, the seventh-highest single-season passing mark in school history. Before the season, he had been named an Athlon and Lindy's preseason Second-team All-ACC player. The Associated Press and Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association named him an All-ACC honorable mention.
