David Yost — who was reportedly offered the Oklahoma State OC job — joins Mike Leach’s staff at Washington State
Remember the name David Yost, Oklahoma State fans?
The former Missouri offensive coordinator who was reportedly offered the same position at OSU last month has found a new school.
Yost has joined Mike Leach’s staff as the inside receivers coach, allowing him to still coach in college football but with fewer responsibilities.
“David is a tremendous offensive mind and will be a great addition to Cougar football,” Leach said in a statement. “His offenses have always been well prepared, explosive, and he has a great ability to develop players.
Yost, who spent 12 seasons on the Mizzou staff, resigned after a 5-7 season in 2012 and said in a statement at the time that it was “just the right time to turn it over to someone else.”
Yost was an understandable candidate for OSU’s OC job because of his relationship with Cowboy coach Mike Gundy. The OSU and Mizzou staffs were among those that gathered at Northwestern last winter to exchange ideas on the spread offense, the Columbia Daily Tribune reported in December. Additionally, the two staffs also previously met in Columbia to discuss the system.
