Steve Haney has been coaching football at Clawson High School since 1997. He joined the varsity staff in 2001 and became the Defensive Coordinator in 2002, when Jim Sparks was named head coach. Coach Haney graduated from Clawson in 1990 and has lived in Clawson his whole life, therefore, he has determined pride in keeping the traditions of his program alive and strong for years to come. He states that two points of program pride are the fact that they've qualified for the state playoffs in 11 out of the 18 years they have coached together and they regularly compete for their league championship. Over the years, as their defensive scheme has changed, they have developed the 8 "staples" of game week to get their defense ready for Friday.
