Missouri decided on long-time college defensive line coach Brick Haley as the next leader of the Tigers defensive front last week, and now we know the preliminary terms of the agreement.
According to a report from St. Louis Post-Dispatch beat report Dave Matter, Haley’s contract will be worth $400,000 for the 2017 season. Matter, who reports that the contract had not yet been finalized as of Monday, obtained the information via open records request.
Haley comes to Missouri from Texas, where he worked in the same capacity for the Longhorns under former coach Charlie Strong, who was fired at the end of season and has since taken the head coaching job at South Florida. Haley reported made $495,000 per year at Texas.
Prior to his two years with the Longhorns, Haley coached under Les Miles at LSU from 2009-2014. He’s also a former Mississippi State defensive line coach (2004-06).
Haley replaces Jackie Shipp, who Matter reports made $385,000 before being fired after an altercation with a player before the Tennessee loss on Nov. 19.
