Report: Oklahoma State OC Mike Yurcich among top candidates for UTEP coaching job

Oklahoma State offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich could potentially be on his way to West Texas.

According to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg, Yurcich was named as one of the top candidates to fill the head coaching vacancy left by Sean Kugler at Texas-El Paso. Kugler resigned from his position as UTEP head coach on Sunday after the Miners’ 0-5 start to the 2017 season.

Yurcich is currently in his fifth season as the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator. He has overseen the transformation of Oklahoma State’s offense into becoming one of the most electric in all of college football entering this season, with senior quarterback Mason Rudolph at the helm.

Yurcich was not the only Big 12 offensive coordinator that emerged as a candidate on Sunday. Texas Tech offensive coordinator Eric Morris was also on the list of potential replacements in El Paso, according to Rittenberg.

Oklahoma State is 4-1 after defeating Texas Tech on Saturday. The Cowboys have a bye in Week 6 before hosting winless Baylor in Week 7.
