Although Charles Brickley competed in the 1912 triple jump, he was much better known as a football player and he made All-America for Harvard in 1911-12. In the 1913 Harvard-Yale game, Brickley kicked five field goals, as Crimson won 15-5. Brickley set college records in that era for most field goals in a season (13) and career (34).

Brickley became a football coach, starting at Johns Hopkins in 1915. He then coached Boston College in 1916-17, and Fordham in 1920. His college coaching record was 22-9. In 1921 he coached the New York Brickley Giants of the American Professional Football Association, a forerunner of the NFL. Brickley then stepped down from coaching. He worked as a stockbroker, shipbuilder, and advertising salesman in New York City.
