Brick Haley has landed on his feet.
Haley, who served as the Texas defensive line coach for the past two seasons under Charlie Strong, was named as the new defensive line coach at Missouri on Friday.

In 2016, Haley oversaw a unit that finished seventh in FBS in sacks with 41.0. He’ll join second-year head coach Barry Odom and a Tigers squad that had 27 sacks this season.
He replaces Jackie Shipp, who was fired earlier this season after he got into an altercation with a player before Mizzou’s game at Tennessee, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
This will be Haley’s third stint in the SEC after stops at LSU (2009-14) and Mississippi State (2004-06). In between, he held the same position with the Chicago Bears.
