Doug Meacham was announced as the new offensive coordinator for the TCU football team Thursday.
Meacham spent the 2013 season as the co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Houston. From 2005-12, he coached tight ends and receivers at Oklahoma State.
“Our goal is to remain a physical football team,” head coach Gary Patterson said in a press release. “Coach Meacham was part of an Oklahoma State system that was highly successful throwing the football, and he continued that in his one year at Houston.”
“I’m real excited about the kind of person Coach Meacham is and how well he fits our staff. We haven’t talked to anybody who doesn’t think the world of him as a person and coach,” Patterson said.
This season, under Meacham, Houston posted 422.5 yards per game and 33.9 points per game. Oklahoma State had a top 10 offense and averaged at least 40 points five times under Meacham. The Cowboys scored 60 or more points 10 times from 2010-12.
In 2013, TCU had the third-worst scoring offense in the Big 12 (25.1 points per game) and finished ninth in total offense (344.8 yards).
Before coming to Stillwater, Okla., Meacham was the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Samford (2002-04), Henderson State (1999-00), Jacksonville State (1997-99)and Georgia Military College (1991-96). He worked as a graduate assistant at Oklahoma State (1998-91) and Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College (1988-89).
