Most of the NFL’s coaches might be blazing at best, but it often came after recognizing their limits as players first.

Staley credits his role as a defensive assistant at the University of St. Thomas, Illinois, in 2009 as the necessary foundation that led him to the NFL.

Glen Caruso, the head coach at the time, had this to say about Staley being termed an “overnight sensation”: “Brandon and Amy (his wife) made a lot of sacrifices. Brandon isn’t a silver spoon. He’s made it because he’s worked his butt off and he’s great at leading and teaching football.”

Staley’s remarkable feats since 2006 to date prove that the path to shining in American Football can also be forged not only by playing in the NFL but also through dedicated years of experience in assisting and coaching.
