Henson and Hill speak to the media

"The No. 1 thing you have to do is put the ball in your playmakers’ hands and get it to them consistently." Pretty much.


It's official: Henson is the new O.C.

So says the release.

University of Missouri Head Football Coach Gary Pinkel today announced promotions for a pair of staff members on the offensive side of the ball. Josh Henson has been named offensive coordinator, and Andy Hill has been named associate head coach, and will now coach quarterbacks. [...]

"I'm excited for both Josh and Andy, and for our team," said Pinkel. "They are both deserving of these opportunities and I'm confident that they are going to do great things to move our program forward. Josh has been a key part of our system for four years and he will bring his own style to how we will operate. Andy is an outstanding teacher of the game. His experience and knowledge of our complex passing game, as well as his energy and drive, will translate well, and will give him a unique perspective that he'll bring to the quarterback position group." [...]

"I'm so grateful to Coach Pinkel for the opportunity to take this next step," Henson said. "We have a tradition at Mizzou of having a lot of success offensively, and I look forward to rolling up our sleeves as an offensive staff and getting us going. We have a lot of talented young men who are anxious to get out there and show what they can do. I'm excited to get to work," he said. [...]

"This is a great opportunity and I'm really eager for the chance to branch out in this new role," said Hill. "We have a really gifted group of quarterbacks that I'll get to work with and I'm excited to dig in and get to work. Mizzou is such an important place to me and to my family. Not many people in this business get to coach at their alma mater for as long as I have, and I'm grateful to have that chance," he said.


Josh Henson is your new offensive coordinator

Change change sounded fun, but Henson has a lot to offer. At least, Gary Pinkel sure has to hope he does.
