We now know who will coach the Aggies during the Texas Bowl

One last ride

While Mike Elko is already busy assembling his 2024 coaching staff, there is still one more game in Texas A&M’s 2023 season to go. But with three offensive coaches, including OC Bobby Petrino, already relieved of their duties, and Interim Head Coach Elijah Robinson accepting the DC job at Syracuse, it appeared very much up in the air who would be leading the Aggies as they take on Oklahoma State on Dec. 27 in the TaxAct Texas Bowl.

Luckily, we received some clarify on that on Tuesday from Elijah Robinson himself during a Texas Bowl teleconference.

Luckily for the Aggies, losing their offensive-minded head coach and their OC doesn’t mean they don’t have capable playcallers. TE Coach James Coley and Analyst Jim Chaney have decades of OC experience between them, so don’t expect the offense to skip a beat (for better or for worse). That said, it will be a bit of a skeleton crew on offense, with Bobby Petrino, Steve Addazio and Dameyune Craig already out the door.

Once again, Robinson has shown why his players have so much devotion to him. I have no idea what his Xs and Os acumen is, but he is the type of man that people want to emulate, and follow. I’m glad to have him on the sidelines in maroon and white one last time.
