Mizzou has reportedly found its new offensive line coach.

FootballScoop is reporting that former Houston offensive line coach Brandon Jones will be joining Eli Drinkwitz’s staff in the same position.

Jones has been a coach since 2007, getting his start at Texas Tech, where he played from 2003-to-2006. He had stops at Sam Houston State (2009), ECU (2010-14) and Cal (2015-16) before returning to Texas Tech in 2017 as offensive line coach.

When Dana Holgorsen left West Virginia for Houston after the 2018 season, he hired Jones away from Texas Tech. Jones was Houston’s offensive line coach for the past 4 seasons. He held the title of co-offensive coordinator from 2019-to-2020. His coordinator title changed to run game coordinator for the past 2 seasons. Holgorsen did not retain Jones after the 2022 season.

In Jones’s 4 seasons at Houston, 5 offensive linemen received All-AAC accolades a total of 6 times. Under Jones, Houston LT Patrick Paul became the first Cougar in American history to be named first-team multiple times, doing so in 2021-22. Jones tutored first-year guard Cam’Ron Johnson to first-team all-conference honors this past season. PFF rated the Cougars the top pass-blocking team of 2022.

Jones fills the vacancy left by Marcus Johnson’s departure for Purdue.
