Mississippi State OC leaving for Texas


Mississippi State’s OC Les Koenning has accepted a job with Texas to become Charlie Strong’s new WR coach, according to multiple reports.

For Mississippi State fans, it’s bittersweet news. The play calling has been criticized the last few years, but losing Koenning right before National Signing Day brings up an interesting scenario for Dan Mullen. Will Mullen call the plays in 2014, or will he hire a quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator to do it for him?

Either way, losing Koenning isn’t devastating for the Bulldogs with an offensive-minded head coach, as he returns to his alma mater, where he played WR from 1977-80.
