According to a report from Brett McMurphy with Stadium Network, Ohio State passing coordinator Mike Yurcich is the favorite to be the new offensive coordinator for the Texas Longhorns.
Ohio State passing game coordinator Mike Yurcich is leading candidate to become new OC at Texas, sources told @Stadium. If Yurcich is hired at Texas, he would remain with Buckeyes thru @CFBPlayoff. Minnesota OC Kirk Ciarrocca also possibility for UT OC job, source said— Brett McMurphy (@Brett_McMurphy) December 22, 2019
Yurcich, an Ohio native, joined the Buckeyes after spending six seasons in Stillwater as the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator. Oklahoma State averaged 38.0 points per game and 478.3 yards per game throughout his six-year run. The Cowboys scored 40 or more points 35 times (in 76 games) and put up 50 or more points 15 times.
The Cowboys were 52-24 during this time with four 10-win seasons and four bowl game victories. Twice the Cowboys appeared in a New Year’s Six game: the 2016 Sugar Bowl and the 2014 Cotton Bowl.
Mike Gundy found Yurich at relatively unknown Shippensburg University, where he was the offensive coordinator. His first Shippensburg team set numerous school records, including points scored, touchdowns and total offense. His second led the NCAA Division II in total offense (529.2) and was second in scoring (46.9) and passing (387.7) during an 11-2 campaign.
