TCU Announces Glasgow's Return As Safeties Coach
Jan. 12, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU head football coach Gary Patterson has announced the return of Chad Glasgow as safeties coach with Trey Haverty and Rusty Burns having new assignments on staff.
Haverty will move from safeties to wide receivers coach, while Burns becomes co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
Glasgow was TCU's safeties coach for 10 seasons (2001-10) before serving this past year as defensive coordinator at Texas Tech.
The Horned Frogs led the nation in total defense each of Glasgow's last three seasons at TCU and four times overall during his first stint in Fort Worth.
In addition to total defense, TCU also topped the nation in 2010 in scoring defense (12.0 points), pass defense (128.8 yards), pass defense efficiency (94.9 rating), opponent third-down conversion percentage (24.1), fewest first downs allowed per game (12.0) and defensive three-and-outs per game (6.0). The Horned Frogs were fifth in run defense (99.7 yards).
Glasgow, a 2010 National Defensive Backs Coach of the Year by FootballScoop.com, has coached 14 all-conference selections at safety at TCU, including 2010 consensus first-team All-American and Jim Thorpe Award finalist Tejay Johnson. Seven safeties coached by Glasgow at TCU signed NFL contracts.
Haverty returned to TCU last season after previously serving as a graduate assistant with the Horned Frogs.
Haverty was an All-America wide receiver at Texas Tech. As a senior in 2004, he led the Big 12 in receptions (77) while placing second in receiving yards (1,019).
Haverty had 110 receptions for 1,326 yards and seven touchdowns in his Texas Tech career (2001-04). In his final collegiate game, he had eight catches for 147 yards in a 45-31 Holiday Bowl victory over California.
Burns, who has been TCU's wide receivers coach the last three seasons, will share the offensive coordinator duties with Jarrett Anderson.
Burns and Anderson were the co-coordinators in TCU's 31-24 Poinsettia Bowl victory over Louisiana Tech.
TCU marks the seventh school that Burns will have served as an offensive coordinator. He also held that role at Springfield (1978-79), Connecticut (1980-88), Memphis (1996-98), Wyoming (1999-01), Cincinnati (2002-03) and SMU (2004-07).
