UCF Football Team Names Josh Heupel New Head Coach

Josh Heupel is the new head coach at UCF

To replace Frost, UCF has hired Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel.

This will be his first head coaching job.

Heupel joined the Oklahoma staff in 2006 as a full-time assistant.

Added Heupel: "I'm extremely excited about the opportunity to represent UCF".

Broadcom escalates Qualcomm takeover fight, proposes to replace the entire board
Chief executive Steve Mollenkopf added that Qualcomm's achievements to date have offered significant value to stockholders. Qualcomm also expressed concerns over regulatory uncertainties and a lack of security in financing on Broadcom's side.

But when you do some digging about this hire, Danny White, who's the current AD for UCF, has a brother [Brian White] who works at Missouri as the Deputy Athletics Director so, that's where the connection comes from in terms of Heupel as a candidate. "Their vision for this becoming one of the premier programs in the country makes this an exciting opportunity", says Heupel. That vision, the fantastic campus, along with the recruiting base not only allows you to have immediate success but sustained success. Heupel was not previously reported to be among those considered for the position, but has built an impressive resume during his two seasons at Missouri. The Tigers went from 124th in the nation in total offense the year before he was hired to seventh this past season. Frost was also a former quarterback with an offense-minded approach.

It's not known how this decision would impact quarterback Drew Lock and the rest of the offense, particularly in terms of decisions to leave for the National Football League or return under a new system next year.

Working with Heupel, Lock led the SEC with 3,695 yards and a conference-record 43 passing touchdowns this past season. It is uncertain if Lock will be back for his senior season.

As a player, Heupel was a consensus All-American at Oklahoma during the 2000 season, guiding the Sooner to the BCS national championship that year.

After building the SEC's top-scoring offense at Missouri, Josh Heupel is leaving the Tigers for his first head-coaching job.

Although his decision to leave was understandable, it was also tough to swallow for a UCF program that was headed in the right direction. The No. 10 Golden Knights are 12-0 and will play Auburn in Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on January 1, 2018 at 11:30 p.m.

Heupel said Tuesday that he will bring on Randy Shannon as his defensive coordinator.
