Borbely joins Strong's staff after spending the past four seasons as the offensive line coach at the University of Virginia. He served as the running game coordinator and offensive line coach and has coached some of the most successful linemen in the history of the Virginia football program.
Borbely coached senior offensive tackle Eugene Monroe in 2008 to several All-American squads including second-team honors by the Associated Press and Walter Camp Football Foundation. Monroe, a first-team All-ACC selection, was also voted the winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, given to the league's best blocker.
During that season, Monroe was instrumental on an offensive line that led the Atlantic Coast Conference by allowing just 16 sacks. That unit also allowed senior tailback Cedric Peerman to finish his career with 1,749 rushing yards, ranking 19th on the Cavaliers* all-time list.
In 2007, Borberly tutored offensive guard Branden Albert, who was named a third-team AP All-American and selected to the All-ACC squad. He was taken as the 15th overall pick by the Kansas City Chiefs in the 2008 NFL Draft.
Borbely guided Virginia running game to an average of 122.7 yards per game during the second half of the season. Borbely also coached Will Barker, who started all 12 games. Barker was one of three first-time starters along the offensive front. Borbely oversaw his progression throughout the year and mirrored that of the offense that had four of its top-six performances in the second half of the season. Barker went on to earn ACC All-Freshman Team honors.
During Borbely*s four seasons at Colorado, the Buffs advanced to three bowl appearances and captured the Big 12 Northern Division on three occasions. In 2002, Colorado finished sixth in the nation in rushing.
Prior to his stint with the Buffs, Borbely coached the offensive line at Notre Dame from 1998 to 2001, where he worked with Strong. While with the Irish, he coached in two New Year*s Day bowls (1999 Gator and 2001 Fiesta).
From 1995-1997 Borbely was the offensive line coach at Stanford where he helped the Cardinal to Liberty and Sun Bowl invitations following the 1995 and 1996 seasons. In 1996, Borbely had two players, Brad Badger and Nate Parks, selected in the NFL draft.
His previous assistant coaching stops included three-year stints at Tulane (1992-94), Temple (1989-91)1991 and Rice (1986-88).
Borbely started his coaching career as a graduate assistant at Evansville from 1981-82. He was the freshmen defensive line coach at Pennsylvania in 1983 and received his first Division I opportunity on the Division I level as a graduate assistant at Tennessee from 1984-1985.
