Mick Yokitis is in his fourth year at the Naval Academy as the wide receivers coach.

Navy finished the 2013 campaign with a 9-4 record, won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for the ninth time in the last 11 years, qualified for a bowl game for the 10th time in the last 11 years, won a bowl game for just the eighth time in school history (beat Middle Tennessee, 24-6, in the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl) and defeated Army for a series-record 12th-consecutive year. The 2013 squad is just the fifth in Navy history to win at least nine games in a season, beat Army and win a bowl game. The 1957, 1978, 2004 and 2009 teams also achieved that feat.

The offense led the nation in fewest turnovers (10), was second in rushing offense (325.4), third in fewest tackles for a loss allowed per game (3.62), sixth in passing yards per completion (15.1), sixth in third down conversions (.511), 11th in fourth down conversions (.679) and 12th in fewest fumbles lost (6).

Navy scored a touchdown on 45 percent (58-130) of its drives last year, which was the sixth best percentage in the country, and went three-and-out just 17 percent of the time (23 times in 135 possessions), which was tied for the fourth best percentage in the country.

Yokitis helped lead Navy to an 8-5 record in 2012 and a berth in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. Navy defeated Air Force, 28-21, in overtime and Army, 17-13, to win the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy.

The win over Army marked Navy's 11th consecutive victory over its biggest rivals. Other big wins for Navy in 2012 included a come-from-behind 31-30 victory over Indiana and wins over bowl bound East Carolina (56-28) and Central Michigan (31-13).

Navy's wide receivers combined for eight touchdown catches in 2012, which is the most by that unit since 1993 when the wide receivers and tight ends combined for 10 touchdown catches.

Navy posted a 5-7 record in 2011 that included a series record 10th-straight victory over Army. Navy played seven teams that finished with a winning record and six that went to bowl games. The Mids finished fourth in the nation in rushing offense, averaging 312.3 yards per game, and 15th in the nation in turnover margin (+0.8).

Yokitis was the head football coach and offensive coordinator at the Naval Academy Prep School from 2008-10 where he led NAPS to 16 wins and directed an offense that averaged 28 points and 428 yards per game.

Yokitis is a 2006 graduate of the Naval Academy where he earned three varsity letters at wide receiver and saw the Midshipmen post a 26-11 record, qualify for three bowl games, win two bowl games and win three Commander-In-Chief's Trophies. Yokitis played in 37-consecutive games for the Midshipmen, including earning a start in all 12 contests as a senior.

After graduation, Yokitis served in the United States Marine Corps before being medically discharged. Mick and his wife, Lindsey, have two sons, Bryce and Nolan, and a daughter, Makenna.
