Former Texas Wide Receiver Joins Oklahoma State Staff

The one-time 4-star prospect will serve on the offensive side of the ball

NCAA Football: Texas at Baylor Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma State has found its its next offensive quality control coach; former Texas wide receiver Lorenzo Joe.

Joe announced the gig on Twitter on Saturday.

“Ever since I was a kid I dreamed of playing football and getting my degree from the University of Texas. I will always cherish my time on the 40 acres. I am blessed to say that I’m now the Offensive Quality Control Coach at Oklahoma State! #GoPokes”

Joe will replace Bob Stitt, who spend the 2018 season as a quality control coach for OSU, before he left to become the offensive coordinator at Texas State.

Joe, a former 4-star prospect, played at Texas from 2014-2017. The Abilene prospect never quite lived up to expectations, finishing his career with 34 catches for 448 yards and two touchdowns. He did finish his time in Austin well, starting in the final 12 games of the 2017 season and grabbing 20 balls for 246 yards and one touchdown.

This is an interesting hire, especially with Joe’s recent legal troubles. He was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor DWI this past July. It was a situation that could have turned out a lot worse than it did.

According to an arrest affidavit filed by UT police, Joe was driving a 2016 Dodge Charger near the 2600 block of Guadalupe Street early July 7. He nearly hit a pedestrian who was walking through the southwest corner of 27th and Guadalupe Streets. Joe’s car was then almost struck by another vehicle.

Joe graduated last Spring with a degree in physical sports and culture.
