In a bit of an unexpected move, Mike Yurcich left the Oklahoma State Football program for greener pastures. Vacating the role of offensive coordinator at the beginning of the new year, the Cowboys began to scour the nation for a top notch coach to fill the void. After several weeks, it appears as though Sean Gleeson is set to inherit to position within the program.
There it is: #OKState announces it has hired Princeton OC Sean Gleeson to be its new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Leaving the FCS and Princeton behind, Gleeson brings an impressive resume with him as the move to Stillwater begins. Over the course of the season, the coordinator set an Ivy League record on an average of 47 points per outing. Dialing up each play, Gleeson’s offense also produced 536.8 yards per game. However, the former Princeton coach also takes over the task of working with the quarterbacks at O-State.
Essentially starting over with the loss of two quarterbacks, Gleeson possesses the ability to work with dual-threat signal callers. Last year, Princeton’s quarterback threw for 203 passing yards while adding another 99 on the ground. Is it indicative of the type of offense the new minted OSU coordinator hopes to install?
For now, Gleeson remains a welcomed addition to the Oklahoma State staff.
