UCF names Josh Heupel as new head coach

UCF names Josh Heupel as new head coach

Heupel is a former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback who was recognized as a consensus All-American in his playing days, won numerous awards and led Oklahoma to the 2000 BCS National Championship.

Heupel claimed his national title while playing quarterback for Oklahoma. That vision, the fantastic campus, along with the recruiting base not only allows you to have immediate success but sustained success. "I know he's going to utilize all the great talent on our roster and continue to add to it. Coach Heupel is in coaching for the right reasons".

The University of Central Florida did not wait long to name a replacement for their head coach replacement.

Dr. Daniel J. White, the UCF Vice President and Director of Athletics, confirmed the announcement, with a press conference scheduled for later in the day on Tuesday. With Heupel at the helm, Missouri is No. 7 nationally in total offense this season, averaging 511.5 yards per game.

Authorities believe body found is Sydney Loofe
Aubrey Trail, 51, and Bailey Boswell, 23, had posted numerous videos to social media since they were named as persons of interest. Trail and Boswell are considered people of interest in Loofe's disappearance and were arrested on unrelated warrants.

Heupel is finishing his second season at Missouri, which has put up big offensive numbers. The Tigers are now No. 10 in the nation in scoring at 39.3 points per game.

"I believe we've identified one of the brightest offensive minds in college football", UCF AD Danny White said in a release. Someone who also runs a fast-paced, high-octane system would be ideal, as it would be asking a lot for Lock to completely change his style of play as a senior.

The Missouri football team is now in the market for a new offensive coordinator. Although his decision to leave was understandable, it was also tough to swallow for a UCF program that was headed in the right direction. "I'm very excited to get a staff together and get to work with our wonderful student-athletes".

Randy Shannon, the Gators' defensive coordinator under Jim McElwain this season and the interim coach following McElwain's dismissal, has been hired as the Knights' defensive coordinator. He was drafted in the sixth round of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins.
