Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman is putting together his staff and has named Rutgers offensive coordinator Drew Mehringer wide receivers coach, according to reports.


Tom Herman’s staff at Texas is starting to take shape.

According to multiple reports, Herman has lured Rutgers offensive coordinator Drew Mehringer to Austin to be his wide receivers coach, the position Mehringer held under Herman at Houston before he left to join Chris Ash with the Scarlet Knights.

The move might be viewed as a step down for Mehringer, but he wasn’t exactly thriving in the eyes of the Rutgers fan base. The Scarlet Knights, who went 2-10 this season and 0-9 in Big Ten play, finished last in the FBS in total offense per game, averaging 282.4 yards per game while being shut out four times.

Mehringer turned 29 years old Saturday, though, and is viewed as a rising coach. He’s a Texas native who played quarterback at Rice and will get a fresh start in his home state. He’ll also be reunited with Herman, who has been Mehringer’s mentor at Iowa State, Ohio State and Houston.

Herman also will be adding a solid recruiter to his staff. Mehringer helped lure standout recruits like quarterback Jonathan Lewis, wide receiver Bo Melton and offensive lineman Micah Clark. Melton and Clark were among other 2017 commits on campus for an official visit this weekend.

Mehringer’s departure is a big blow to Rutgers’ rebuilding process under Ash, who brought Mehringer with him from Ohio State when he accepted the Scarlet Knights’ head coaching job prior to this season. Ash recently said he hoped to keep his coaching staff intact for quite some time to building continuity within the program.

Now, Ash is tasked with having to find Rutgers’ eighth offensive coordinator in the last eight years.
