University of Tulsa Head football Coach Philip Montgomery announced recently that Mike Bloesch has been promoted to offensive line coach.
Montgomery confirmed that co-offensive coordinators Sterlin Gilbert and Matt Mattox have elected to leave the Golden Hurricane coaching staff and accept coaching positions at the University of Texas. Gilbert coached Tulsa quarterbacks and Mattox the offensive line.
Bloesch has served as Tulsa’s offensive quality control/assistant offensive line coach since joining the Golden Hurricane program in January. He came to Tulsa following one season as the offensive football analyst at the University of Houston, and before that was the offensive coordinator at Temple (Texas) High School for three seasons, posting an overall 19-13 record and scoring over 40 points and gaining over 500 yards of offense. Bloesch also served as offensive line coach at Abilene Cooper High School for two seasons, helping that team compile a 20-6 record and set school records for points and total yards.
“Mike is a rising star when it comes to coaching the offensive line. He played for us at the University of Houston, and really understands, as a player and coach, what we need to do from a schematic and offensive line standpoint in this offense,” says Montgomery. “We are fortunate to have someone like Mike on staff to step in and not miss a beat.”
