Texas Reportedly Hires Rutgers' OC Drew Mehringer

Tom Herman is adding a Big Ten offensive coordinator to his staff at Texas.

Drew Mehringer is leaving Rutgers for Texas, according to multiple reports.

The Scarlet Knights' offensive coordinator will join Tom Herman at Texas. Mehringer worked under Herman at Houston, Ohio State, Iowa State and Rice.

From NJ.com:

Drew Mehringer -- arguably the most important member of Ash's coaching staff -- will take an assistant's job under his longtime mentor Tom Herman, the new coach at Texas.

NJ Advance Media confirmed earlier reports with a source. Neither Ash nor Mehringer returned messages seeking comment.

It is a huge blow to Rutgers, which will be left looking for its eighth offensive coordinator in the last eight years under three head coaches.

Mehringer is a Texas native and played quarterback at Rice before suffering a career-ending injury.
