Oklahoma State assistant coaching carousel roundup: Who’s out, who’s in?
Oklahoma State announced Thursday that Jason Ray had been hired as the Cowboys’ receivers coach, filling another vacancy on a coaching staff that has seen plenty of change this offseason.
Barring any unexpected circumstances, coach Mike Gundy now just needs to find an offensive coordinator, the job that has been open the longest. But, as we’ve mentioned several times before, Todd Monken wasn’t hired until early February two years ago.
In case you’ve missed any of the news, here’s a quick roundup of the coaching staff changes over the past few weeks:
In: Glenn Spencer (promoted)
Replaces: Bill Young (fired)
Previous job: Co-defensive coordinator/linebackers coach at OSU (2011-12)
Other experience: Linebackers coach at OSU (2009-11), defensive line coach at OSU (2008), assistant head coach/recruiting coordinator/defensive backs coach at Duke (2004-06), running backs/defensive line coach at Georgia Tech (2001-03), head coach/defensive coordinator/defensive line/linebackers coach at West Georgia (1990-2000)
What he’ll bring: Continuity on staff and with players, but likely a more aggressive style, keeps recruiting ties to Georgia and the Southeast
Gundy says: “We are appreciative of everything Coach Young has done for us over the past four years, but we are also excited about heading in a new direction with our defense.”
