Coastal names Bailey D-line coach, recruiting coordinator

Coastal Carolina head football coach Joe Moglia announced the addition of Cory Bailey to the Chanticleer staff. The former Assumption College head coach will serve as Coastal’s recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach.

Bailey spent eight years as the Assumption head coach and compiled a 32-50 record over two stints. From 2004-07, he posted a 13-28 record and was 19-22 from 2009-12, leaving the institution to pursue an opportunity in the private sector for the 2008 season.

Under Bailey’s guidance, the Greyhounds posted back-to-back winning records (2009 and ’10) for the first time in program history. The 2010 season was highlighted by victories over Division I opponents Fordham University and Wagner College. The ‘Hounds victory over Fordham came on the road at Bailey’s alma mater and was the first road victory for Assumption over a Division I program.

Assumption ranked among the NCAA Division II top 15 in sacks over the past two seasons and among the top 30 in tackles for loss. The ‘Hounds ranked ninth in sacks (3.0 per game) in 2012 and 27th in tackles for loss, while ranking 11th in sacks and 29th in tackles for loss in 2011.

Prior to his tenure at Assumption, Bailey coached at King Philip Regional High School (Wrentham, Mass.) from 2002-04 as the head freshman coach, varsity defensive coordinator and offensive line coach. He additionally completed an internship with the NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers (summer 2003).

In 2001, Bailey took a break from coaching to play professionally with the Rhein Fire in NFL Europe after being a seventh-round draft selection. He started at offensive guard and did all the long snapping while also participating in film breakdown and scouting of opponents.

Bailey was an assistant coach at Iona College during the 2001 season, coaching tight ends, offensive tackles and long snappers. Prior to that, he spent one season as an assistant coach at Dean Junior College, coaching both the defensive line and the special teams while coordinating the strength and conditioning programs.

Bailey was a standout performer for head coach Nick Quataro at Fordham University from 1994-97. He earned first team All-Patriot League honors at center in both 1996 and ’97, was a team captain in 1997 and was named his team’s Most Valuable Player. Bailey graduated from Fordham with a bachelor of arts in economics with a minor in communications in May 1998.

After graduation, he signed as a free agent with the National Football League’s New York Giants. He also was a clinician at the New Jersey High School Coaches’ Clinic.
