  4. Graham Harrell. Look at the North Texas offense the three years he was there and look at it now. Look at USC's beat up offense using a third string pure freshman QB this year. If Helton is fired he may be a great candidate. last year NTU finished 9-4 and so far this year they are 4-6. Kind of long read, but check him out below.

    Graham Harrell joined the Mean Green as the offensive coordinator for North Texas prior to the 2016 season.

    North Texas' offense continued its strong resurgence under Harrell in 2018, as the Mean Green averaged 34.6 points per game, which ranked 27th in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Quarterback Mason Fine took home Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year honors for the second consecutive season, throwing for 3,793 yards, 27 touchdowns and only five interceptions. Fine will enter 2019 as the nation's leading returning passer (FBS) and already holds 11 program records heading into his senior season. The rushing attack paced by sophomore DeAndre Torrey also had success in his first season as a member of the Mean Green. He averaged 5.6 yards per carry and scored 15 rushing touchdowns (18 total). Torrey, a second team all-conference performer, ranked seventh in FBS in total touchdowns. Junior wide receiver Rico Bussey, Jr. also had a breakout season, leading the Mean Green in receptions (68), receiving yards (1,017) and touchdowns (12) on his way to first team all-C-USA honors.

    In 2017, The Mean Green showed marked improvement offensively again in Harell's second season, improving their points per game average by 10.7 ppg (35.5). Fine also took a major leap forward in his second season with under Harrell's guidance, becoming the first Mean Green signal-caller to eclipse 4,000 yards passing in a season (4,052) and the first to throw for 30 or more touchdowns (31). Fine was named Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year and was a first-team all-conference performer. Running back Jeffery Wilson also had a monster season, earning Second Team All-Conference USA honors after rushing for 1,215 yards and 16 touchdowns. The Mean Green rushing attack totaled 2,280 yards and 28 scores.

    In his first season in Denton, his offense saw the 11th-best turnaround in the nation, scoring 9.6 points per game more than it did in 2015. North Texas threw for 771 more yards than it did in 2015, and the total offense gained 603 yards more than it did in 2015 under Harrell's guidance.

    Harrell, who was a record-setting Texas high school football quarterback at Ennis and in college at Texas Tech, spent two seasons at Washington State. He was promoted to outside receivers coach in 2015 and helped lead the Cougars to an 8-4 season and a berth in the Sun Bowl.

    Harrell coached wide receiver Gabe Marks, who was a Pac-12 first-team all-conference selection in 2015. Marks led the conference in receptions, touchdown receptions and was second in receiving yards per game. He set a Washington State single season record with 14 receiving touchdowns. In addition to Marks, wide receiver Dom Williams received honorable mention honors after hauling in 73 catches for 997 yards and 11 touchdowns. Washington State led the nation in passing offense in 2015, throwing for 397 yards per ga

  5. all this is fine and great, but we still come back to the one big problem and that is they are pass centered offense that doesn't place an emphasis on time of possession or avoiding high risk throws.

    the answer to me on whom should be the oc for tcu is who can put an offense in place that is effective and gives gary what he wants out of his offense
  6. Can't disagree with that either.
  7. Last OC from East Carolina worked out pretty well for Oklahoma
