UH hires OK State assistant Doug Meacham to be new OC

Jim Cowsert-US PRESSWIRE

Doug Meacham leaves the seventh-ranked passing attack for the 11th in going from Oklahoma State to Houston.

The Houston Cougars will hire current Oklahoma St. assistant coach Doug Meacham as their new offensive coordinator, according to a tweet from CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman. It was originally reported by the Houston Chronicle.

Meacham served as inside receivers coach and passing game coordinator for the past eight seasons at Oklahoma State. He last served as an offensive coordinator at Samford from 2002 to 2004 following stints at Jacksonville State and Georgia Military.

Oklahoma State ranked third nationally in points per game (45.7), seventh in passing yards (331.7) and 22nd in rushing yards (215.3) during an 8-5 campaign that ended in a 58-14 shellacking of Purdue in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. The Cougars were 11th in passing yards (328.4), 72nd in rushing (151.2) and 38th in points per game (32.4), finishing 5-7 this season.

Meacham won't have to start from scratch, but will have his work cut out for him to get Houston's offense at the level the Cowboys played at this season.
