The Tim Beck to Texas move is official.
Texas officially announced this afternoon the hiring of Ohio State offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Tim Beck.
From the release:
"I'm so excited to have Tim joining our staff and running our offense," Herman said. "He's a guy I've known and respected for a long time. Not only is he a coach that is highly thought of in our business, but he's an unbelievable person who does a tremendous job developing players, building relationships, working with a staff, recruiting — everything you're looking for as a head coach in an assistant. And on top of all of the great success he's had coaching across the country, he also spent several years coaching high school football in our great state. He'll be a tremendous addition to our staff."
"I'm extremely excited to be coming back to the state of Texas and working with a program that I've always hoped and dreamed I could one day be a part of," Beck said. "I know first hand from my high school coaching days here that the passion of the fans, love for football and the way the state embraces it on the high school and college levels are just unbelievable. There is no place like Texas, and I've always considered The University of Texas as the pinnacle of that, and what a great opportunity to be in this position while working with a great head coach in Tom Herman. He's energetic, smart, innovative, has a great plan, and he's put together an awesome staff. I can't tell you how excited I am to get started."
Ohio State is replacing Beck with former NFL QBs coach Ryan Day and is also reportedly hiring former Indiana coach Kevin Wilson.
