Greg  Frey

Position:
Tackles and Tight Ends Coach/Run Game Coordinator


Frey returns to Ann Arbor after spending six years at Indiana University (2011-16). A 2015 Broyles Award nominee, Frey mentored the offensive line during his time in Bloomington. He added the role of assistant head coach in 2016 after serving as co-offensive coordinator (2014-15) and run game coordinator (2012-13) with the Hoosiers.

Frey developed the Hoosiers' offensive line into the most efficient in school history. Two-time All-America right guard Dan Feeney and left tackle Jason Spriggs, who was the Hoosiers' first Outland Trophy semifinalist, became the fifth and sixth offensive lineman in school history to earn first-team All-America honors. Spriggs was a second-round pick of the Green Bay Packers in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Frey has coached more than 20 student-athletes that have reached the NFL through the draft or free agency, including five players at Indiana. In addition, Frey has mentored 20 all-conference honorees in his career.

During his first stint at Michigan, Frey helped build an offensive line that paved the way for a school-record and Big Ten-leading 6,353 offensive yards in 2010. The Wolverines had a balanced offense in 2010, gaining 250.2 passing yards per game and 238.5 rushing yards per contest.

Frey coached All-Big Ten and NFL players David Molk, Patrick Omameh, Taylor Lewan, Stephen Schilling and Michael Schofield at Michigan. Lewan was named the Big Ten's Offensive Lineman of the Year and was selected by the Tennessee Titans with the 11th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. In addition, Molk won the Rimington Trophy as the nation's most outstanding center.

Frey spent the 2007 season mentoring the offensive line at West Virginia. While in Morgantown, he coached an offensive line led by Walter Camp All-American Ryan Stanchek and All-Big East first team performer Greg Isdaner.

Frey helped launch South Florida's football program, serving as a graduate assistant in the team's first years of existence (1996-98). He received a full-time position leading the Bulls' defensive line during the 1999 season and then moved to the opposite side of the ball, working with the offensive linemen for seven seasons (2000-06).

A native of Clearwater, Florida, Frey is a 1996 graduate of Florida State University (1996). He was a three-year letterman for the Seminoles and was a member of Bobby Bowden's national championship team in 1992, defeating Nebraska in the 1993 Orange Bowl. He gained bowl victories in the 1992 Cotton Bowl, the 1995 Sugar Bowl and three Orange Bowls (1993, 1994 and 1996).

Frey was part of four straight Atlantic Coast Conference championship teams (1992-95) and the team compiled a 31-1 league mark during his playing career. He posted a four-year record of 43-5-1, with four consecutive top-four finishes in the national polls.

Frey and his wife, Andrea, have four sons: Bryce, Alex, Cameron and Drew.
