Current Position: Oklahoma State offensive quality control coach

If the Texas football program really wants to dig deep and trust that they would be making the right decision for the long-term for this position coach, then look no further than former wide receiver Lorenzo Joe.

A lot of the candidates that Texas might be looking into are former wide receivers for the Longhorns. There would not be many better solid finds that the Longhorns could have among former wide receivers of this program than Joe.

The final year on campus for Joe was his best during his career on the Forty Acres. His last season with the Longhorns also happened to be the first for Herman as the head coach, 2017. That has to play into the benefit of Joe if he’s going to get this coaching job.

What should also play to the benefit of Joe is the fact that head coach Mike Gundy and the Oklahoma State Cowboys were willing to take him on as an offensive quality control coach. Oklahoma State is no slouch at finding undervalued wide receiver targets on the recruiting trail and developing them to reach new heights.

Oklahoma State had two of the better wide receivers in the Big 12 this season between Tylan Wallace and Dillon Stoner. They were developed under the same mentor that Joe would have right now, with Oklahoma State wide receivers coach Kasey Dunn.
