Texas A&M Set to Hire Collin Klein as Offensive Coordinator

Mike Elko’s vision is becoming clearer

NCAA Football: South Dakota at Kansas State Scott Sewell-USA TODAY Sports

As first reported by Kansas State’s 247 site, Texas A&M is set to hire Kansas State’s Collin Klein for the vacant offensive coordinator position.

Klein will be replacing Bobby Petrino (lmao still cant believe he was our OC), who recently left to take the same role back at Arkansas (lmao still cant believe’s their OC again).

Klein, a K-State legend, comes to A&M after having served the past couple of years as offensive coordinator and a few years prior as QB coach, responsible for the development of guys like Skylar Thompson and Will Howard. The production stats are impressive, including being the #8 team in offensive SP+ this year, 37 points per game, 434 yards per game, 11th in offensive points per drive, and top 15 in red zone scoring.

You might also remember Klein as having been a finalist for the Heisman along with Johnny Manziel and Manti Teo. What a fantastically boring life he’s lived compared to the other two and good for him! We should all be so lucky!

Klein joins offensive line coach Adam Cushing (brought in from Duke) on the offensive side of the ball. We’ll see where the rest of the staff goes from here.
