Scoop: Missouri promoted from within and hired offensive line coach Josh Henson to be the new offensive coordinator, according to Gabe DeArmond on PowerMizzou.com. Wide receiver coach Andy Hill will become the quarterback coach.
Significance: The Tigers have been looking for an offensive coordinator since David Yost resigned about two weeks ago. The Tigers decided to promote from within after some speculation that they were looking to bring in a new face.
Story: The Tigers made a safe move promoting Henson and HIll. Players showed support for the current coaches when Yost resigned, and the Tigers didn’t want to change too much with what they have. The microscope will be on Henson as Mizzou struggled on offense in its first season in the SEC. Yost was also a quarterback coach and solid recruiter, so Henson and Hill have important responsibilities going forward. The Tigers are now in search for a wide receiver coach, and there’s a chance the university will allow anyone to apply.
