Jarred Holley is beginning his second season on the University at Albany football staff as the safeties coach.
Holley, a two-year starting defensive back at the University of Pittsburgh, came to the Great Danes from Arizona State, where he worked since 2015, serving as a graduate assistant on both the special teams and defensive staffs before working as a defensive analyst in 2017.
At Pittsburgh, Holley was a two-time Big East All-Academic Football Team Honoree and two-time member of the All-Big East team. He finished his career with 11 interceptions and attended mini-camps with the Pittsburgh Steelers after signing as an undrafted free agent.
“I’ve known Jarred since he was in high school,” UAlbany Head Coach, Greg Gattuso, said. “He was a terrific football player, and we think he’s going to be a great addition to our staff. He’s a very talented young coach.”
