It’s been a wild week for Oklahoma State coaching announcements. Last Friday, it was announced that offensive line coach Greg Adkins had been dismissed. Now one week later, OSU has found his replacement.
Oklahoma State has named Josh Henson as offensive line coach. Henson, an Oklahoma State alum, served as an offensive analyst for Mike Gundy in 2016, before taking a job as the assistant head coach/offensive line and run game coordinator at Arizona State last month.
The hiring of Henson isn’t just big for the offensive line. With Marcus Arroyo leaving to take a coaching position at Oregon, Oklahoma State lost the man many believed to be the team’s best recruiter. Henson can now take that role. He’s widely considered a top-flight recruiter, including during his stint as tight ends coach at Oklahoma State under then Head Coach Les Miles. He was ranked as one of college football's top 25 recruiters in 2006 and 2007 by Rivals.com.
Henson also previously worked as the offensive coordinator for Missouri from 2013-2015.
On a side note; I do think we should give Jake Trotter of ESPN some credit, for calling this move back on January 3rd.
