Tulsa OC Sterlin Gilbert latest to turn down Longhorns’ OC job

|

No one is willing to come call plays in Austin these days it seems. After ESPN reported that Sterlin Gilbert had agreed to become Charlie Strong’s offensive coordinator, Tulsa’s co-offensive coordinator is actually staying put.

The news comes only a few days after TCU co-OC Sonny Cumbie also turned down UT.

Charlie Strong stripped offensive coordinators Shawn Watson and Joe Wickline of their play-calling duties after only one game last season. Receivers coach Jay Norvell called plays for the final 11 games for the Longhorns.

Texas finished 5-7 with an offense that ranked eighth in the Big 12 in 2015.

With Gilbert as co-offensive coordinator, the Golden Hurricane offense averaged 502.8 yards per game this season and ranked No. 5 in passing offense and No. 6 in total offense among Group of 5 programs.
