Meyer names Tom Herman as offensive coordinator/QB’s coach

Tom Herman, the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Iowa State University the past three years, and before that the same position for record-setting offenses at Rice University, has been named offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Ohio State by new head coach Urban Meyer.

Herman’s 2011 Iowa State offense, which he will coach on December 30 in the Pinstripe Bowl against Rutgers at Yankee Stadium, averages 181.2 rushing yards and 211.7 passing yards per game. The Cyclones put up 44 points in a triple-overtime win over Iowa and accumulated 37 in a double-overtime upset of then-undefeated and then-#2 Oklahoma State.

“To work with and for Coach Meyer is an exciting opportunity for me,” Herman said. “i am really looking forward to working with him and learning his offensive systems. And to be able to coach with him at The Ohio State University is simply a dream come true.”

Herman was born in Cincinnati and still has family there, although he was raised in Simi Valley, California. He played collegiately at California Lutheran, graduating in 1997 with a degree in business administration. He earned a master’s degree in education from the University of Texas.

Herman has 11 years of experience as a college coach, including seven seasons as an offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach, and 13 when his two seasons, 1999-2000, as a graduate assistant at Texas are included. He coached four years at Sam Houston State (2001-04), serving as receivers coach and special teams coordinator. He also spent two years at Texas State (2005-06) and two years at Rice (2007-08) as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

While his Texas State offenses led the Southland Conference in total offense each season, his stint at Rice was really notable. His offenses broke over 40 school records and in his second season the Owls won 10 games and went to a bowl for the first time since 1954.

Furthermore, Rice ranked in the Top 10 nationally in 2008 in passing offense (5th; 327.8), scoring offense (T8th; 41.6) and total offense (10th; 472.3). Two Rice receivers had more than 1,300 yards receiving that year, tight end James Casey had 111 catches and quarterback Chase Clement was the Conference USA MVP.

Herman and his wife, Michelle, have a daughter, Priya, and a son, Maddock.

Zach Collaros

Benton "Munchie" Legaux

Cincinnati Bearcats quarterback Zach Collaros had surgery on Monday (today) to repair his broken right ankle, which will keep him out of the team’s final three regular season games.

Now, the leaders in the Big East Conference will be led by a dual-threat in sophomore Benton “Munchie” Legaux (LAY’-go).

Collaros broke his ankle during the second quarter of a 24-21 loss to West Virginia last Saturday.

Legaux will get his first start for this weekend’s game at Rutgers who is 3-2 in the Big East.

Legaux is a running threat at QB. He showed as much against the Mountaineers running 65 yards and exciting the fans at Paul Brown Stadium. He brought the Bearcats back from a 10-point deficit in the second half and was 10 of 21 for 144 yards with an intereception. But he ran eight times for 89 yards and a touchdown.

At Edna Karr High School in New Orleans, Legaux threw for 5,250 yards and 65 touchdowns. On the ground, he ran for over 2,000 yards and scored 20 touchdowns.

* The Cardinals opened the season at 3-3, a bowl wasn’t even in the future. But despite a tough schedule in the Big East, they endured. The Cardinals knocked off eventual league champion Connecticut and won at improving Syracuse and scored a win against Rutgers to end at a bowl-eligible 6-6.
