Sam Gregg, a veteran offensive coach for more than two decades, rounded out Liberty's offensive staff when he was named Liberty's offensive line coach in 2019.
Gregg came to Liberty after spending the previous five seasons (2014-18) as the offensive coordinator at West Georgia.
Working alongside fellow Liberty coaching staff members Josh Aldridge, Rickey Hunley and Scott Symons, Gregg helped West Georgia to four NCAA Division II playoff appearances (2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018), back-to-back 12-win seasons, two NCAA Division II Super Region 2 titles (2014 and 2015) and a Gulf South Conference crown in 2015.
Prior to his time in Carrollton, Ga., Gregg spent six seasons at West Alabama (2008-13), starting as an offensive line coach before he was promoted to offensive coordinator.
During his seven seasons as an offensive coordinator in the Gulf South Conference at West Georgia and West Alabama, Gregg helped produce 48 all-conference players. This number included a pair of All-America linemen in center Harley Vaughan and tackle Austin Kastl.
During his coaching career, Gregg has coached 17 All-Americans (11 offensive linemen, four running backs and two tight ends).
Gregg, who is a 2002 graduate of Murray State, started his coaching career as a defensive line coach at Itawamba Community College (2003), Southwest Baptist (2005-06) and Arkansas – Monticello (2007) and as a graduate assistant at Memphis (2004).
