Monken returns to Okla St as offensive coordinator
Question of the Day
STILLWATER, OKLA. (AP) - Todd Monken is leaving the Jacksonville Jaguars' staff to become the new offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State, returning to the school where he previously spent three years as an assistant.
Monken coached the Jaguars' receivers for the past four seasons and held the same position at Oklahoma State for three seasons when Les Miles was head coach and current coach Mike Gundy was offensive coordinator.
Monken was hired Wednesday to replace Dana Holgorsen, who left to become West Virginia's head coach-in-waiting. The Cowboys were third in the Bowl Subdivision in both scoring and total offense and second in passing last season.
Receiver Justin Blackmon and quarterback Brandon Weeden are among the starters returning on offense.
"Todd is a really good fit for what we need," Gundy said in a statement. "He's been in the Big 12 and SEC and he's coached at places that have won at a high level. He's an experienced, intelligent coach who will be able to come in and help us pick up where we left off. We're excited to have him join our staff."
Monken left with Miles in 2005 to become the receivers coach at LSU for two seasons before being hired by Jacksonville. He was set to become the Jaguars' quarterbacks coach next season.
