Brick Haley Named to Coach Tech Linebackers

Feb. 11, 2002

ATLANTA – Head football coach Chan Gailey has named Andrea “Brick” Haley to fill the position of linebackers coach on the Georgia Tech staff.

Haley, 35, comes to Tech after three seasons as the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Baylor University in Waco, Texas.

“It’s great to have a coach of Brick’s caliber join our staff,” said Gailey. “Brick has been an excellent defensive coach through the years, and he’ll give us some recruiting inroads into some vital areas for us.”

A native of Gadsden, Ala., Haley entered the college ranks full-time as the defensive line coach at Austin Peay State from 1991-93. He became the defensive line coach at Troy State in 1994 and remained there through the 1996 season. He was named defensive coordinator after the 1996 season, but moved on to Houston to coach outside linebackers for the 1997 season. From there, he coached outside linebackers at Clemson for one year (1998) before taking the position at Baylor.

Haley graduated from Emma Sansom High School in Gadsden in 1984, and went on to play linebacker for the football team at Alabama A&M, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in physical education with a minor on telecommunications in 1989.

After remaining at Alabama A&M as a student assistant coach for spring practice, Haley became an assistant coach at Enterprise (Ala.) High School, coaching tight ends, in 1989. He took a graduate assistant position at the University of Arkansas working with the defensive line in 1990 before taking his first full-time position at Austin Peay State.

Haley is married to the former Tina DeLaine, and they have one son, A.J.

The addition of Haley gives Gailey seven assistant coaches, including Bill O’Brien, offensive coordinator, Joe D’Alessandris, offensive line, Curtis Modkins, running backs, Tommie Robinson, wide receivers, Patrick Nix, tight ends/recruiting coordinator, and Glenn Spencer, defensive line. David Wilson will be the director of football operations.
