Thomas Chandler Gailey, Jr. (born January 5, 1952 in Gainesville, Georgia) is a National Football League offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was formerly head coach of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football team and the Dallas Cowboys.

Gailey had previously served as offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins in 2000-01 when the Dolphins posted consecutive 11-5 records. He was on the Pittsburgh Steelers staff from 1994-97 when the Steelers won four straight AFC Central titles and played in one Super Bowl (XXX). He was offensive coordinator in 1997 when Pittsburgh ranked sixth in the NFL in total offense and seventh in scoring.[1]


[edit] High school years

Gailey attended Americus High School in Americus, Georgia and was a student, an Eagle Scout, and a letterman in football, basketball, baseball, and golf. In football, he was an All-State selection as a quarterback. Gailey graduated in 1970.

[edit] College years

Gailey attended the University of Florida, and was a student and a three-year letterman for the Gators as a quarterback. In 1974, Chan Gailey graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Physical Education.

[edit] Coaching career

[edit] Troy State, Air Force, Troy

Gailey stayed with Florida as a graduate assistant for two years before taking his first actual coaching job as the secondary coach for Troy State University in Alabama. After two seasons there, he spent four seasons with the Air Force Academy, including two as defensive coordinator under head coach Ken Hatfield.[2] In 1983, he took over the head coaching duties at Troy, where he led the Trojans to a 12-1 record in 1984 en route to the Division II championship.[3]

[edit] Professional leagues

Gailey moved to the National Football League the next year, when the Denver Broncos signed him as a defensive assistant and special teams coach. The team made three Super Bowl appearances during his six-year tenure. In 1991, Gailey left the NFL to become the head coach of the Birmingham Fire of the World League of American Football, where the team made the playoffs in both years that he was coach.

After a one-year stint as head coach at Samford University, he returned to the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers. After starting off as coach for the wide receivers, then moved up to offensive coordinator for the 1996 and 1997 NFL seasons.

In 1998, Gailey was hired to take over a struggling Dallas Cowboys squad, one that had faltered under Barry Switzer during his last year. Gailey's Cowboys won the NFC East in 1998, and made the playoffs under his two years at the reins, although they failed to win a playoff game.

Gailey returned to the offensive coordinator role, this time with the Miami Dolphins for the 2000 and 2001 seasons.[4]

Gailey was hired on January 16, 2008 to become the offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs. Gailey inherits a Chiefs offense that ranked at the bottom of the league in almost every category.[1]

[edit] Georgia Tech

Gailey was hired by the Yellow Jackets in 2002 to replace George O'Leary who left to become Head Coach at the University of Notre Dame, and was fired in 2007.[5] In his first five years at Georgia Tech, he had compiled a 37-27 record. Georgia Tech went to bowl games each year under Gailey, and won two: the 2003 Humanitarian Bowl (a 52-10 win over the University of Tulsa), and the 2004 Champs Sports Bowl (a 51-14 victory over Syracuse University). However, in six seasons at the helm, Gailey never defeated Tech's biggest rival, the University of Georgia, never won the ACC, never went to a BCS bowl, never lost fewer than 5 games, and never finished in the top 25. The 2006 season was his most successful at Georgia Tech winning the ACC Coastal Division, but losing to Wake Forest in the ACC championship game.[6]

Gailey's name was mentioned for both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins head coaching jobs following the 2006 season, two teams for which he was offensive coordinator.[7] Gailey got neither job. On January 19, 2007 Gailey announced he would return to Georgia Tech.[8]

After a 7-5 2007 regular season and losing for the sixth straight year to the Georgia Bulldogs football team, it was announced on November 26, 2007 that Gailey has been dismissed and will have his $1 million/year contract bought out.[9][10][11][12]
