After two years coaching Oklahoma State’s offensive line, Coach Josh Henson is heading to College Station to coach the offensive line at Texas A&M.
Jimbo was able to land the first coach he targeted, venturing north of the Red River and grabbing an old friend and assistant in Josh Henson.
Henson, who previously worked with Texas A&M coach Jeff Fisher at LSU, will replace former line coach Jim Turner who took the O-line coach job in Cincinnati for the Bengals. Fisher worked quickly, with Turner making the move just earlier this week.
For a time, Henson was thought to be a candidate for Oklahoma State’s offensive coordinator position after Mike Yurcich left for Ohio State. However, Gundy hired Princeton OC Sean Gleeson to the position back in January.
This is a major blow for Oklahoma State and Mike Gundy who will now have to find his fourth offensive line coach since 2014. It also means OSU is losing it’s best recruiter. Henson has done a terrific job rebuilding Oklahoma State’s line, adding quality depth the position group. It will also be important to see how this impact’s Oklahoma State’s top 2020 commit, 4-star offensive tackle Eli Russ.
Henson, an Oklahoma State alum, has spent the past three seasons in Stillwater. He spent the first year serving as an offensive analyst before being promoted to offensive line coach in 2017 after Gundy fired Greg Adkins.
