Missouri OC Josh Heupel named next coach at UCF

Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel's departure from Missouri to Central Florida, where he will become the Knights' new coach, has presented the Tigers with a new set of questions.

Heupel, who has been the offensive coordinator at Missouri the past two seasons, is scheduled to be introduced at a news conference Tuesday. "I'm very excited to get a staff together and get to work with our wonderful student-athletes", Josh Heupel said in a UCF release.

Heupel takes over for Scott Frost, who left to coach the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Frist departed UCF after leading the Knights to a victory in the AAC Championship and a berth in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl where they will face off against Auburn on January 1.

"What makes this opportunity so unique is the vision of the leadership from President John Hitt, Provost Dale Whitaker and Director of Athletics Danny White".

Heupel takes over a UCF program coming off its best regular season in school history.

Mike Pence denies report he offered to take over as Republican nominee
In fact, Pence's good rapport with Hanover College's administration landed him a job in the school's admissions office in 1981. Some commentators called on Karen Pence to go public with her criticism. "The whole house was locked down".

Frost will coach UCF in its bowl appearance against Auburn. Heupel quickly announced that Randy Shannon will serve as the team's defensive coordinator. Shannon, a Florida native and former player and coach at Miami, recently held the same position at Florida from 2015-17. I have competed and coached against Randy. What we do know is that the Heupel hiring came nearly out of nowhere.

"You could see his knowledge", White said. He plays a 3-4 scheme and believes in multiple coverages.

Heupel, a former All-America quarterback who led the University of Oklahoma to its last national championship, is the right fit to keep the Knights on the upswing.

Heupel said he runs a no huddle and fast paced style of offense. "That's the style that they want". Lock led the SEC in passing this season, and Missouri led the SEC in scoring offense averaging 39.3 points per game. A decision wasn't expected from Lock, the Tigers' junior quarterback from Lee's Summit, until after Mizzou's bowl game against Texas on December 27.

As a player at Oklahoma, Heupel was a consensus All-American in 2000 and was the first Sooner quarterback to earn All-America honors.
