Jeff Hafley spent one season on the Rutgers football staff after joining the program in the winter of 2010 as the secondary coach.
Hafley, a native of Montvale, N.J., spent five years at the University of Pittsburgh, including three seasons as Pitt's secondary coach.
Prior to Pitt, Hafley served at the University of Albany for four seasons (2002-05), including his final two as defensive backs coach and recruiting coordinator. In his initial two years, Hafley was a graduate assistant who coached Albany's defensive tackles and outside linebackers. During his time at Albany, Hafley also coached a safety Kurt Campbell, who became the first player in the school's history to be taken in the NFL Draft as a selection of the Green Bay Packers.
Hafley coached the running backs at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 2001. In addition, he also worked significantly with WPI's special teams and coached the kickers.
Bob Fraser spent six seasons on the Rutgers football sideline. During his time at RU, Fraser has been instrumental in helping orchestrate some of Rutgers' best defensive units. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the program with more than two decades on the sidelines.
In 2009, his first season as co-defensive coordinator, Fraser helped the Rutgers defense reach great heights as the Scarlet Knights ranked in the top-20 in six categories, including leading the nation in tackles for loss and ranking fourth in sacks. RU was 15th in the country in rushing defense, 16th in scoring defense and 18th in total defense.
Prior to joining the RU staff, Fraser served nine seasons as linebackers coach at Colgate University. During his tenure at Colgate, he coached three Patriot League Defensive Player of the Year honorees, nine All-Patriot League selections and two All-Americans.
Fraser started his coaching career as a graduate assistant coach at his alma mater, Allegheny College for the 1985 and 1986 seasons. He later served in the same role at Rutgers for the 1987 and 1988 seasons, where he worked with then graduate assistant coach Greg Schiano for five months leading up to the 1989 season.
Fraser returned to Allegheny for the 1989 season in his first full-time position, spending three seasons as linebackers coach. The Gators were undefeated for two seasons and in 1990 won the NCAA Division III National Championship.
From 1992-95, Fraser coached the defensive line at Holy Cross and in 1996 was the offensive tackles and tight ends coach at Northeastern.
In a third stint at Allegheny, Fraser spent the 1997 coaching the inside and outside linebackers.
Brian Angelichio spent one season on the Rutgers coaching staff as tight ends coach after a five-year stint on the Pittsburgh sidelines.
During his tenure at Pittsburgh, Angelichio helped develop the tight end position into one of the Panthers' top offensive weapons. In addition to coaching the team's tight ends, Angelichio served as Pitt's offensive coordinator in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
In 2009, Pitt's starting tight ends, and 2010 NFL Draft picks, Nate Byham (San Francisco 49ers) and Dorin Dickerson (Houston Texans), were both named All-BIG EAST and were major assets for the Panthers' potent offense under offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti.
Prior to his stay at Pittsburgh, Angelichio spent 10 years coaching at Ithaca College (1996-2005). Named Ithaca's offensive coordinator in 2000, Angelichio guided a highly productive unit that set or tied 30 team and individual records over his final five seasons. The Bombers averaged nearly 40 points per game in 2005 to rank 18th nationally on the NCAA Division III level.
Angelichio coached seven All-Americans at Ithaca, which advanced to the postseason in seven of his 10 years.
Butler spent eleven seasons in the Rutgers football program as the Head Football Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Butler, who earned a Mechanical Engineering degree from Bucknell University in 1991, designed the state-of-the-art, 15,500 square foot strength and conditioning facility in the expanded Hale Center. He incorporated the latest technologies, including digital video analysis, a 60-yard FieldTurf track and other amenities to complete one of the nation's premier facilities. Its use has been integral in developing the complete football player.
Prior to joining the Scarlet Knights' staff, Butler served as the Director of Speed, Strength and Conditioning at Dartmouth College for five years (1996-2000). Before his stint at Dartmouth, Butler worked four years at East Carolina University in the strength and conditioning program. He began his coaching career as a graduate assistant for three years at ECU, while earning his master's degree. He was soon promoted to Assistant Director of Strength and Conditioning in 1995.
P.J. Fleck spent two seasons on the Rutgers coaching staff as the wide receivers coach.
Fleck helped the unit make strides in his first season with the Scarlet Knights, most notable in Mark Harrison, who emerged as a potent offensive weapon under Fleck's guidance. Harrison went on to lead the Scarlet Knights with 829 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. His most impressive outing came in 2010 against Cincinnati as he finished with career-bests in receiving yards (240), receptions (10) and touchdowns (four). The four TDs tied a school record, while his 240 yards receiving was second-most in a game in Rutgers history.
The Sugar Grove, Ill., native arrived at Rutgers after three seasons as the wide receivers coach at his alma mater, Northern Illinois. Fleck also served as the Huskies' recruiting coordinator in his final year with the program.
Fleck began his coaching career after two seasons as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. After signing with the 49ers as a free agent in 2004, he spent most of that season on the practice squad before making an appearance versus New England late in the year. He was placed on the injured reserve roster in 2005 before retiring from professional football in June 2006.
Randy Melvin recently spent one season as the defensive line coach of the CFL’s BC Lions. Before heading to British Columbia, he has two separate stints as the defensive line coach of Rutgers (2002-2003) / (2010).
Melvin has experience in both the NFL (New England 2000-2001) (Cleveland 2005-2008) and in the NCAA (Eastern Illinois, Wyoming, Purdue, Rutgers, Illinois, Temple) between 1988 to today.
Raye previously coached the NY Jets following two seasons as the assistant head coach/offensive coordinator of the Oakland Raiders. He brings 29 years of NFL coaching experience, and previously spent two seasons with the Jets, adding the title of assistant head coach in 2003 after serving as senior offensive assistant in 2002. Raye has served as an NFL offensive coordinator for 11 seasons and on six separate occasions.
Raye began his coaching career in 1971 at his alma mater, Michigan State, where he stayed for five years (1971–75). He served a brief stint at Wyoming in 1976 before moving to the NFL ranks, beginning with the San Francisco 49ers (1977), Detroit Lions (1977–79), Atlanta Falcons (1980–82, 1987–89), the L.A. Rams (1983–84, 1991), Tampa Bay (1985–86) and New England (1990).
He was hired by the San Francisco 49ers as the official Offensive Coordinator on January 29, 2009. After the 2009 season, he was praised for his ability to adapt the offense after key players were injured and continued as the 49ers' offensive coordinator to start the 2010 season. This was the first time that the 49ers had an offensive coordinator return to the team for consecutive seasons in seven years.
On September 27, 2010, he was fired by the 49ers and quarterbacks coach Mike Johnson was promoted to replace him
Tem Lukabu spent two seasons coaching the outside linebackers and four seasons overall on the Rutgers sideline. This is his second stint with the Scarlet Knights as Lukabu was previously a member of the RU player development staff from 2006-08.
Prior to returning to Rutgers, Lukabu served as linebackers coach at the University of Rhode Island from 2008-10. While with the Rams, Lukabu mentored a pair of standout players in Matt Hansen, a second team All-Colonial Athletic Association and All-New England Sports Writer honoree. He also coached Rob Damon, a third team Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) All-American and third team All-CAA recipient.
Lukabu began his collegiate coaching career with the Scarlet Knights in 2006, working in the area of player development. He was on staff during two of Rutgers' earliest bowl victories, the Texas Bowl Championship in 2006 and the 2008 International Bowl Championship.
A former linebacker himself, Lukabu was a three-year starter at Colgate. In 2003, he captained the National Runner-up squad that finished 15-1 and ranked second in the nation. That same year, Lukabu was named a third team Associated Press All-American and was also a finalist for the Buck Buchanan Award, given to the National Defensive Player of the Year.
