Wright Adds Former Moc Tippit To Football Staff

Wednesday, January 23, 2019
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga head football coach Rusty Wright announced the addition of former Moc Jordan Tippit to his staff today.  Tippit joins the Chattanooga staff as a defensive assistant for the 2019 season.

“Jordan was very impressive when he interviewed for the position on our staff,” stated Wright.  “He has made a commitment to coaching as a career and has worked hard to prepare for this opportunity.  I am excited about having him on our staff and the impact he can have on our program and our student-athletes.” 

Tippit spent last season as a graduate assistant at Troy.  There he helped the Trojans to a school-record, fourth-straight bowl win.  They defeated Buffalo 42-32 in the Dollar General Bowl to cap off a 10-3 season.

“I am ecstatic for the opportunity to work at my alma mater!,” exclaimed Tippit.  “Chattanooga is a second home to me and I couldn't be more excited to continue my coaching career where my teammates and I helped lay the foundation for a championship program!”

Prior to working on Neal Brown’s staff, Tippit was a Defensive Assistant at NCAA Division III Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Ala.  There he helped the Hawks to a 9-2 record and an appearance in the NCAA Division III Playoffs.  Huntingdon also won the USA South Athletic Conference championship with a 7-0 mark in league play.   He began his coaching career as an outside linebackers coach at Boyd Buchanan High School in Chattanooga.

Tippit graduated from UTC in 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Sports Administration.  As a student-athlete for the Mocs, he made 30 starts in the 41 games during his four-year career.  He was a team captain as a senior in 2011 and finished tied for sixth in career interceptions with nine.
He was a first-team All-Southern Conference as a sophomore.

Tippit was a three-sport athlete at Buckhorn High School and earned All-Metro honors in his final two seasons of football.
