After one season at Oklahoma State, offensive coordinator Sean Gleeson is returning to his home state of New Jersey on a three-year deal for the same position at Rutgers. He’ll also coach quarterbacks for the Scarlet Knights.

Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports and The Athletic first reported the news.

In his lone season with the Cowboys, OSU averaged 32.5 points per game with a balanced attack of 2,985 rushing yards and 2,916 passing yards. Gleeson joined OSU on Jan. 27, 2019, after being Princeton’s offensive coordinator for two seasons and running backs coach for four.

OSU head coach Mike Gundy will now look to fill the offensive coordinator role for the second time in two years after Mike Yurcich, who spent six seasons in Stillwater, left to be Ohio State’s quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator. Yurcich will return to the Big 12 next season as Texas’ offensive coordinator.
