Joey Halzle promoted as Tennessee’s offensive coordinator

Tennessee second-year quarterbacks coach Joey Halzle has been promoted to offensive coordinator.

Halzle replaces Alex Golesh. Golesh served as the Vols’ offensive coordinator and tight ends coach from 2021-22. He was hired as USF’s head coach on Dec. 4.

“Joey has been instrumental in our record-setting offensive success over the past two seasons, and he’s built great trust within our team,” Tennessee head coach Josh Heupel said in a press release. “I have known Joey for over 15 years, and his track record of player development has impacted every place he has been. He has complete knowledge of our aggressive offensive identity and principles. Having played and coached at this level, he understands how to connect with players and will continue to make a significant impact in recruiting. This will be a seamless transition for him as we strive to build a championship program that Vol Nation is proud of.”
