The Aggies are looking to fill the gap left by former defensive line coach Mark Hagen — who unexpectedly left to coach at Indiana.
Haley has a long and illustrious career as a coach of defensive linemen. Aside from a two-year stint with the Chicago Bears, much of his time has been on the collegiate level. Stops at Mississippi State, LSU, and now Texas has seen Haley develop and ultimately send many players to the NFL — including 10 during his six-year stay with LSU.
Reputed as a strong recruiter, he’d be a massive get for the Aggies. Expect Texas to do everything it can to ensure Haley will stay in Austin.
