Jovan Haye, a former Vanderbilt defensive standout and a seven-year NFL veteran, enters his first season as a defensive quality control on the Commodore staff. He will assist first-year Vanderbilt defensive coordinator Jason Tarver and defensive line position coach C.J. Ah You.

Haye was a two-time captain and 2003 All-Southeastern Conference performer for the Commodores while starting 34 games on the defensive line from 2002-04. He finished his Vanderbilt career with 11 sacks among 149 total tackles.

Haye was selected in the sixth round of the 2005 NFL Draft by Carolina. In a professional career that included stops at Carolina, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Tennessee and Detroit, Haye registered 6.5 quarterback sacks among 185 tackles.

A native of Mandeville, Jamaica who moved to the United States in the first grade, Haye eventually starred as a prep lineman at powerful Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., before signing a scholarship with the Commodores.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in Human and Organizational Development from Vanderbilt in 2007.

Haye and his wife Jennifer live in Brentwood. They are the parents of three girls: Jorielle, Jaiana and Janiyah.
