Greg Briner
Offensive Coordinator

Briner brings more than 25 years of offensive coaching experience to the HITMEN, most recently serving as the offensive coordinator for the resurgent Southern Methodist University Mustangs. Prior to SMU, Briner directed the offensive attack for Jim Donnan on two separate occasions, at Marshall University and the University of Georgia. He also served a five-year stint for coaches Rod Dowhower and Ron Meyer, now head coach of the XFL’s Chicago Enforcers, with the Indianapolis Colts.

Under Briner’s direction, Marshall’s Thundering Herd set 32 school, conference and NCAA offensive records en route to a Division I-AA title in 1992 and a return appearance in the finals three years later. At Georgia, Briner mentored quarterbacks who led the SEC in pass efficiency and were ranked fifth in the nation in the same category in 1997.

The Dallas, Texas resident also guided the U.S. Naval Academy to one of its finest offensive outputs in 1993, establishing new school marks in pass efficiency rating, single-season passing yardage, and completions.

As a player, Briner earned All-American accolades at quarterback for Gardena High School in Los Angeles, Calif. He was also a member the USC Trojan squad that defeated Michigan 10-3 in the 1970 Rose Bowl.

“I am impressed with Greg’s ability to direct an offensive game plan,” HITMEN head coach Rusty Tillman said. “He’ll be a great addition to our staff.”

“The XFL provides a unique opportunity for me to return to pro coaching,” Briner said. “I’m excited to join a first class organization like the HITMEN and am looking forward to providing fans with an exciting offensive attack that will keep them on the edge of their seats.”
