Mizzou offensive coordinator takes head coaching job at UCF

UCF hires Josh Heupel as head football coach

"I'm extremely excited about the opportunity to represent UCF", said Heupel, who flew to Orlando on Monday night to meet with athletic director Danny White and Randy Shannon, who will be the Knights' new defensive coordinator. It's a nice fit for both sides. Heupel was not previously reported to be among those considered for the position, but has built an impressive resume during his two seasons at Missouri. Shannon has coached defense since the early 1990s, and has plenty of experience as defensive coordinator.

The former University of Central Florida head coach couldn't say no to a seven-year, $35 million deal with the University of Nebraska, a school he once played for and attended.

The Missouri football team is now in the market for a new offensive coordinator. "I believe we've identified one of the brightest offensive minds in college football". His offense now rates 10th in Total Offense this season in the FBS and averaging 39-points a game. Someone who also runs a fast-paced, high-octane system would be ideal, as it would be asking a lot for Lock to completely change his style of play as a senior. "What makes this opportunity so unique is the vision of the leadership from President John Hitt, Provost Dale Whitaker and Director of Athletics Danny White". Prior to Missouri, Heupel guided offenses at Utah State (2015) and Oklahoma (co-OC 2011-14, QBs coach 2006-10). I know he's going to utilize all the great talent on our roster and continue to add to it.

Under Frost's direction this season, the Knights secured one of the nation's top offenses as they led the country in scoring and finished inside the top 10 in several other key offensive categories. He led the Sooners to a national title win over Florida State in the Orange Bowl. Before his time at UF, Shannon was most notably the head coach at Miami, his alma mater, from 2007-2010.

The Miami Dolphins drafted Heupel in the sixth round of the 2001 draft.

It remains to be seen if Heupel will coach the Tigers through the Texas Bowl, but with Scott Frost's staff staying on at UCF through the Peach Bowl, Heupel has the freedom to choose to coach in one last game as a Mizzou assistant.
