Meacham will inherit a Cougars offense that averaged 480.8 yards and 32.4 points per game in 2012, its first season under head coach Tony Levine. Starting quarterback David Piland, who completed 57.1 percent of his passes for nearly 3,000 yards, 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions this past season, will be a redshirt junior in 2013. All-Conference USA second-team running back Charles Sims and leading receiver Dewayne Peace also return.

Before returning to OSU as an assistant coach in 2005, Meacham was the offensive coordinator at Samford (2002-04), Henderson State (1999-2000), Jacksonville State (1997-99) and Georgia Military College (1991-96).
