Former Texas offensive coordinator Tim Beck is going to be NC State’s next offensive coordinator, according to a Football Scoop report. Beck was demoted recently at Texas but was kept on staff; the Longhorns play in the Alamo Bowl on Tuesday, so an official announcement wouldn’t come before that game ends.
Beck has extensive coaching experience at the power-conference level and has served as the offensive coordinator at Nebraska, Ohio State, and Texas. He was the offensive coordinator for the Longhorns for the last three seasons.
Texas shuffled its staff after finishing 7-5, but the disappointing record wasn’t exactly the offense’s fault: the Longhorns rank 14th in total offense and 31st in yards per play this season. Texas’ offense improved on a per-play basis from 2017 to 2018 and 2018 to 2019 under Beck’s leadership and averaged 35 points per game this season.
Beck and Dave Doeren spent a little time working together at Kansas back in the day, and that connection may be what put him on the radar.
