Houston offensive coordinator Doug Meacham headed to TCU
Coming off the program’s worst record since 1997, it’s not exactly shocking to see staff changes at TCU.
A big part of the Horned Frogs’ issues were on offense, where TCU averaged just 25.1 points per game, which ranked 90th in the nation, and Gary Patterson has tapped Houston offensive coordinator Doug Meacham in an attempt to address TCU’s offensive woes.
Meacham, who was offensive coordinator at Houston for one season, will take over play-calling duties from co-offensive coordinators Rusty Burns and Jarrett Anderson. Former offensive coordinator Justin Fuente spent five seasons as TCU’s offensive coordinator before becoming Memphis‘ head coach prior to the 2012 season.
Before his stint at Houston, Meacham served as inside receivers/tight ends coach and passing game coordinator at Oklahoma State, his alma mater.
Meacham’s Houston offense averaged just under 34 points per game last season.
The Cougars started the season 7-1, but sputtered down the stretch, averaging just 19.5 points per game en route to a 1-3 finish.
