Trey Haverty, a 2004 graduate of Texas Tech, returns to his alma mater where he was an All-American receiver and will coach safeties and serve as the special teams coordinator.
Haverty recently completed his fifth year overall at TCU and his first as the wide receivers coach. He was the safeties coach in 2011.
In his first season as receivers coach, Haverty played a lead role in guiding the Horned Frogs through their inaugural season as members of the Big 12 Conference. He tutored All-Big 12 Honorable Mention selection Josh Boyce, who led the Horned Frogs with 891 yards and seven touchdowns.
Haverty served as a Horned Frogs' graduate assistant from 2007-09. He spent one season as the defensive coordinator at Millsaps College in 2010.
As safeties coach in 2011, Haverty mentored Tekerrein Cuba into a second-team All-Mountain West selection, while redshirt freshman Jonathan Anderson had 17 tackles against BYU for the most stops by a Horned Frog player in a game since 2004.
During Haverty's time as a defensive graduate assistant at TCU, the Horned Frogs led the nation in total defense twice (2008-09). TCU was 23-3 in Haverty's final two seasons as a graduate assistant. The 2009 campaign saw the Horned Frogs make their first BCS appearance with a trip to the Fiesta Bowl.
Haverty first arrived at TCU after serving as wide receivers coach at Cisco Junior College in 2006. His first coaching position was at Midlothian High School in 2005.
During his playing days, Haverty was an All-America wide receiver at Texas Tech. As a senior for the Red Raiders in 2004, Haverty led the Big 12 in receptions (77) while placing second in receiving yards (1,019). He was a second-team All-American by Sports Illustrated and a third-team Associated Press pick. In his final collegiate game, he had eight receptions for 147 yards in a 45-31 Holiday Bowl victory over California. Haverty had 110 receptions for 1,326 yards and seven touchdowns in his Texas Tech career (2001-04).
Haverty and his wife, Christy, were married in Summer 2011.
