Luke Jaicks joined the Brevard College football coaching staff in 2017 as the Tornados special teams coordinator and cornerbacks coach. In the 2017 season, BC's special teams unit broke school records for most single-season blocked punts, highest kickoff return average, highest individual kickoff return average (Xavier Brown), most field goals made in a season, and the second-highest field goal average in NCAA-era history.
 
Under Jaicks' guidance, the Tornado secondary ranked first in the conference in lowest passing yards allowed per game in the 2018 season, while Sophomore cornerback Quentin Jackson received USA South All-Conference First Team and Defensive Player of the Week honors. The Tornados claimed the number-one kickoff return player in the conference, as Tre Charles averaged 25.3 yards-per-return (new school record). Punter/Wide Receiver Ralph Roman III garnered USA South Football All-Conference Second Team honors after averaging the second-best net punting yardage rating in the conference.  
 
In 2019, Jaicks was promoted to Defensive Coordinator and Cornerbacks Coach.  He arrived at Brevard from Scottsdale College and Southwestern Oklahoma State where he coached DBs and linebackers.

Jaicks helped Scottsdale to a 10-1 record and a Western States Football League Championship in 2013. The Artichokes finished the season ranked third in NJCAA play, after defeating Dodge City Community College in the Valley of the Sun Bowl. Following that success, three defensive backs signed with NCAA Division I institutions: Patrick Glover (University of Arizona), Jordan Frost Dixon (Middle Tennessee,) and Andre Fils (Hampton).

In 2014 Jaicks coached at Southwestern Oklahoma State (Division II) where his CB Kevin Joseph was All-Conference, second team All-Region, and finished sixth nationally in pass breakups.

In 2015 Jaicks went back to Scottsdale to coach the DBs. The Scottsdale defense finished first overall in the conference and first in pass defense. The secondary finished sixth statistically in the country in pass defense. Jaicks oversaw four DB All-Conference players in 2015. Chevoski Collins and DJ Olmstead were First-Team All-Conference selections, and Collins was selected First-Team All American by the NJCAA (DB). Olmstead went on to play professional football. 

Collins received multiple Division I offers, and DJ Olmstead signed with Idaho despite having no offers, even at the Division III level, coming out of high school. Telvance Way was a Second Team selection (DB), while Kylan Cotton was selected Honorable Mention. Both received scholarship offers, and they ended the season by defeating Central Lakes (MN) in the Valley of the Sun Bowl.

In 2016 Jaicks coached the LBs at Scottsdale College. Individually the group was responsible for 11 of the 14 turnovers recorded that year. Sophomores Londale Sanders and Angel Silva were offered Division I scholarships, and Sanders recently signed with University of Arkansas Pine Bluff.

As a player in high school, Jaicks was a Second Team All-State selection (DB) and First Team All-Region (WR) selection (2005). Jaicks went on to sign with Southern Utah before concluding his collegiate playing career at Scottsdale College. He recorded 23 tackles,  six interceptions and five pass breakups for Scottsdale as he earned all-conference honors.

A native of Mesa, AZ, Jaicks holds a bachelor’s degree in eastern psychology from the Maharishi University of Management.
