Ohio State QB coach and co-offensive coordinator Tim Beck has reportedly been hired as the new offensive coordinator at Texas.
According to a report from Horns Digest, Texas head coach Tom Herman will bring in Ohio State QB coach and co-offensive coordinator Tim Beck to run the offense for the Longhorns.
Beck was apparently targeted by Texas from the moment Herman was hired as head coach, and the report claims that Herman has long respected Beck, who boasts a 30-year coaching career.
Beck was originally hired by the Buckeyes after their 2015 national championship victory to serve as a successor for none other than Tom Herman at OC, after he took the head coaching job at Houston.
However, Beck’s position eventually became unclear, as the report claims that play-calling duties were changed between Beck and co-offensive coordinator Ed Warinner multiple times by Urban Meyer. Now, Beck will have autonomy “serving as the lone offensive coordinator, calling plays, running the offense in practice, etc.”
