The Associated PressDecember 18, 2013

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- TCU has hired Texas Tech assistant coach Sonny Cumbie as the Horned Frogs' co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

The move was announced Wednesday.

Cumbie, a former Red Raiders quarterback, will be co-offensive coordinator with Doug Meacham, the Houston co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks hired last week by TCU coach Gary Patterson.

Cumbie, a Red Raiders assistant coach the past four seasons, was Tech's starter as a fifth-year senior in 2004, when threw for 4,742 yards and 32 touchdowns. He had 441 yards and four touchdowns in a 70-35 win over TCU.

Jarrett Anderson and Rusty Burns were co-offensive coordinators for TCU this season, when the Frogs went 4-8. Both have been offered other positions on the TCU staff after Anderson coached running backs and Burns was in charge of quarterbacks.
