Texas A&M isn’t content with being Texas’ archrival just on the field. The Aggies are now attempting to take on the Longhorns in the office, as well.
Texas A&M is apparently trying to hire Texas defensive line coach Brick Haley away from Austin, according to OrangeBloods.com reporter Anwar Richardson.

In early 2015, Texas hired Haley from LSU, where he had coached the defensive line since 2009.
This past season, the Longhorns averaged just more than three sacks and allowed 219 rushing yards per game during a time when the perennial powerhouse manage a disappointing 5-7 record.
Texas A&M went 8-5 on the year, but fell to Louisville in a Music City Bowl in which the Cardinals rushed for more than 300 yards and two touchdowns.
Haley also coached the defensive line for the Chicago Bears and Mississippi State Bulldogs before joining LSU.
