Texas A&M approaches d-line coach Brick Haley about joining Aggies

Posted February 12th, 2016


Charlie Strong may not be done with his coaching turnover. On Friday, beat reporter Brian Davis learned that Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin has approached Texas defensive line coach Brick Haley about joining the Aggie staff, according to a source close to the situation.

Haley has worked for one year on Strong’s staff and was hired before the start of the 2015 season after being let go at LSU.

If Haley were to leave the staff, he would be the ninth coach to depart since Strong was hired just over two years ago. Two staffers departed late Thursday as receivers coach Jay Norvell left for a similar position at Arizona State, and defensive backs coach Chris Vaughn parted ways with Texas after being implicated in a NCAA investigation at his previous coaching stop, Mississippi.
