Strong Fills Out Staff with Jean-Mary

Posted: February 5, 2010 by Bacon in Louisville Football, Posted by Rob Jones
As was mentioned here last week and was confirmed by the Atlanta Journal Constitution today, Charlie Strong has filled out his first coaching staff with Brian Jean-Mary who spent the last 6 seasons with Georgia Tech linebackers coach. Jean-Mary (pronounced Jon-Muree) will serve as assistant head coach and linebackers coach on Strong’s staff. He spent time in 2000 on the Louisville staff under coach John L. Smith as assistant strength-and-conditioning coach. Jean-Mary commented to the AJC on how tough the decision was to leave Tech

“Always scary when you are going from a team that just won its conference
to a team that hasn’t gone to a bowl in two years,” Jean-Mary said. “[My] career
goal is to be a head coach one day. That was the No. 1 reason why I left. I have
a lot of love for Tech, it’s a special place.”


Jean-Mary, a Haitian American, will have a young unit that just picked up some good talent on signing day in Deon Rogers & Preston Brown to add to returning starter Brandon Heath and young up-and-comers Mike Privott and Horace Miller. He’ll have his hands full, but judging by the class in which he left Tech, he will be a great fit with Strong’s staff. Only 51 days until Spring practice…
