The University of Tulsa has announced the hiring of Kevin Wilson to take over as the school's 34th head new football coach. He will be introduced during a Tuesday afternoon press conference.

For the last six seasons, Wilson has been the offensive coordinator for the Ohio State Buckeyes, with this year’s team headed to the College Football Playoff and averaging nearly 500 yards and 45 points per game.

Previously, Wilson was the offensive coordinator at the University of Oklahoma, where his high-powered offense scored a then-NCAA record 716 points during the 2008 season. He left the Sooners to become the head coach at Indiana, compiling a record of 26 wins and 47 losses over six seasons.

Wilson takes over a Golden Hurricane program that hasn’t won more than seven games in a season since 2016. He replaces Philip Montgomery, who was fired by TU last week after eight seasons.
