A few weeks after getting fired as co-offensive coordinator at Oklahoma, Josh Heupel reportedly has a new job.
Heupel, a former Sooners quarterback who was the program’s offensive coordinator for the past four seasons, was let go on Jan. 6 after the Sooners trudged to an 8-5 finish. Before being promoted to offensive coordinator, Heupel served as Oklahoma’s quarterbacks coach from 2006-2010. He also was a graduate assistant with Oklahoma in 2004 after a brief NFL career.
He’ll replace Kevin McGiven, who left Utah State to be the quarterbacks coach at Oregon State under former Utah State head coach Gary Andersen.
Before his time as quarterback at Oklahoma, Heupel had playing stints at two colleges in Utah – Weber State and Snow Junior College – so he’s familiar with the state.
The Aggies went 10-4 in 2014, culminating with a 21-6 win over UTEP in the New Mexico Bowl.
