Bush Hamdan is out at Mizzou after he departed for Boise State to become the Broncos’ new offensive coordinator. With the move, he replaced Tim Plough, who was fired as the Broncos’ offensive coordinator 4 games into the 2022 season.

Toward the end of the 2022 regular season, Tigers head coach Eli Drinkwitz had delegated play-calling responsibilies to Hamdan, something that immediately paid dividends in a big way.

Quarterback Brady Cook was recently asked about Hamdan’s departure.

“Obviously I’m pretty bummed out,” Cook said. Me and Coach Hamdan were really tight and he was a great coach for us but at the end of the day it is Coach Drinkwitz’s system.”

With some of the offensive sputters Mizzou had with Drinkwitz calling the plays, how much that affects things in the Gasparilla Bowl against Wake Forest will be something to watch.
