Tom Bradley is in his 31st season on the Penn State staff and 10th supervising one of the nation's top defenses. He also is in his 14th year working with the cornerbacks. Penn State was one of only four teams ranked in the Top 10 nationally in rushing, total and scoring defense in 2008, leading the Big Ten in rushing and total. The Lions have five consecutive Top 15 finishes in total and scoring defense, holding six teams to 10 points or less in 2008. Ten teams scored 17 points or less on the Lions in 2006. Bradley, who has played a large role in the success of the defense and recruiting efforts during his tenure, has helped develop four All-Americans in the secondary and cornerback Justin King was first team All-Big Ten in 2007. Bradley was a football letter winner at Penn State in 1977-78, a graduate assistant in 1979 and became a full-time staff member in 1980. In addition to the defensive backs, Bradley also has coached five other positions, including outside linebackers and defensive ends, coordinated the special teams and served as recruiting coordinator, bringing numerous prep standouts to Penn Staters throughout his tenure. Shane Conlan, O.J. McDuffie, Kim Herring, David Macklin, Bryan Scott, Alan Zemaitis Justin King and Lydell Sargeant are among the PSU standouts he has coached. Bradley was football and basketball captain at Bishop McCort High School in Johnstown, PA.
