Tony Papley, who completed his playing career at Slippery Rock in 2013, is in his second season as graduate assistant defensive line coach.
Under Papley's tutelage in 2014, the D-line produced a First Team All-NEC honoree.
A three-year letterman at nose tackle for SRU, Papley earned first team All-PSAC West honors as a senior in helping the Rock defense rank fourth nationally in pass defense efficiency, fifth in third-down conversion and 25th in rushing defense.
The Slippery Rock, Pa. native was part of two Western Division championship teams as a player.
Papley completed his degree in parks and resource management in December of 2013.
