Battlehawks Add Tory Woodbury to Coaching Staff, Will Serve as Special Teams Coordinator/Tight Ends Coach

Anthony Becht is bringing an old friend in his return to St. Louis. This time it’s a former New York Jets teammate Tory Woodbury, to now serve as his Special Teams Coordinator and assist with Tight Ends. Woodbury and Becht spent two years together in New York, where Woodbury served as an emergency QB and Wide Receiver.

Woodbury made the announcement himself via his twitter in combination with Anthony Becht making post himself on December 18th. Woodbury most recently was coaching Tight Ends and serving as the Special Teams Coordinator for Morgan State University, a position he took earlier this year. He resigned from the position via twitter on December 12th.

Before coming to Morgan State Woodbury spent the last five years in the Rams organization winning a super bowl with the franchise. Woodbury held roles as a scout in addition to be an assistant special teams coach on the Rams 2021 Super Bowl Winning team. Woodbury has also spent time working as an intern with the Browns (2014) and Jaguars (2012). From 2011-2017 Woodbury had spent time as the Running Backs Coach at Delaware State and the Offensive Coordinator at Johnson C. Smith University.

As stated, Woodbury is another piece of Anthony Becht’s coaching staff that has ties to his playing days. Woodbury brings five years of coaching experience, and a plethora of experience as a player from his days with the Jets, Saints, Voodoo and Bills. For Woodbury the chance to assist this new group of players in the third iteration of the XFL is a chance to continue to build on the foundation of the league. With Woodbury the Battlehawks employ a coach who understands what it means to be player “54” and be a part of an alternative league.
