Friday has been a fury of crazy-coded social medial posts regarding Oklahoma State Football. However, the pieces may be falling into place and pointing to a potential homecoming for a former coach.
OSU offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson is finalizing a three-year deal to join Greg Schiano at Rutgers as O.C. and quarterbacks coach. In his lone season at Oklahoma State, Gleeson guided the Cowboys to a Top 25 offense and produced the nation’s best running back in Chuba Hubbard.
That’s where the next part of the puzzle comes in to play here. Hubbard has yet to announce a decision regarding the NFL. Granted it is the biggest decision the star tailback has made in his life but you have to think that the longer it plays out the better the odds are in favor of the Cowboys.
Should Hubbard return to Stillwater in 2020, the next offensive coordinator will have a Biletnikoff caliber receiver in Tylan Wallace, a rising star in quarterback Spencer Sanders, and a 2,000 yard rusher in Hubbard.
Now, add Todd Monken to the mix. Having already enjoyed two stints at Oklahoma State, he could very be on is way to a third. On Friday the current Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Tweeted out the Canadian Flag, clearly in salute Hubbard who is Canadian, sparking wide speculation that he’s coming back home.
Monken served as Oklahoma State’s passing game coordinator & wide receivers coach from 2002-2004, and then as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2011-2012.
It would be extremely difficult not to get excited about a potential third round with him on the sidelines for the Cowboys.
