Josh Heupel will keep UCF on the right path

"What makes this opportunity so unique is the vision of the leadership from President John Hitt, Provost Dale Whitaker and Director of Athletics Danny White", Heupel said in a news release. He's no stranger to success, winning a national championship as a quarterback and leading a number of extremely high-powered offensive teams. His offense led the SEC in yards per game in 2016 and is now ranked No. 7 in the nation in total offense this season, averaging 511.5 yards per game.

Heupel began a full-time coaching job at OU in 2006 and spent five seasons coaching quarterbacks, overseeing the development of Heisman Trophy victor Sam Bradford before being promoted to offensive coordinator before the 2011 season.

He served as quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator at Oklahoma from 2006 to 2014 before being let go at his alma mater, where he played quarterback on the Sooners' national championship team in 2000 and was the Heisman Trophy runner-up. That vision, the awesome campus, along with the recruiting base not only allows you to have immediate success but sustained success. "He cares about his student-athletes and that's one of the most important attributes I look for in a coach". With Heupel now in charge, the offense figures to pick up where it left off given his ability to lead Missouri on the offensive end. OU then brought in Lincoln Riley, who was promoted to head coach after Bob Stoops retired.

He coached at Utah State in 2015.




Working with Heupel, Lock led the SEC with 3,695 yards and a conference-record 43 passing touchdowns this past season.

On Tuesday morning, the Knights announced that Heupel would succeed Scott Frost at the last remaining undefeated FBS team, and that wasn't long before the school broke the news that Heupel's defensive coordinator will be former Florida assistant Randy Shannon.

Heupel becomes the 11th head coach in the history of Central Florida football. Shannon, a Florida native and former player and coach at Miami, recently held the same position at Florida from 2015-17. He was drafted in the sixth round of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins.
