Will Healy is entering his sixth season at UTC and his fifth as the receivers coach. A native of Chattanooga, Healy has been on staff throughout head coach Russ Huesman’s tenure.
Healy worked on the receiving end of a passing offense that averaged 277 yards per game in 2010, ranking No. 2 in the Southern Conference and No. 8 in the nation.
He tutored Joel Bradford to a school-record 1,284 receiving yards and Third-Team AP All-American honors. Bradford twice broke the Mocs’ single-game record for receiving yards in 2010. He logged 254 on 11 catches against Eastern Kentucky and 274 on 15 catches at Furman.
Healy joined the Mocs in 2009 after playing four years at the University of Richmond. He coached the quarterbacks in his first season with the Mocs in 2009, helping 2012 NFL draft pick and former Moc B.J. Coleman with his initial transition to the FCS level.
Healy was a team captain on the Spiders’ 2008 FCS National Title team and saw action in 31 games in his collegiate career. He saw action in the Spiders’ win over Montana in the 2008 FCS Championship game played in Chattanooga’s Finley Stadium.
Healy earned all-state twice, all-state honorable mention two other years, and was a four-time all-region selection at Chattanooga’s Boyd-Buchanan High School. A Tennessee “Mr. Football” finalist as a senior, Healy holds the Chattanooga area career passing record with more than 7,700 yards.
