Publish date:

TULSA, Okla. (AP) Tulsa coach Philip Montgomery confirmed Saturday that co-offensive coordinators Sterlin Gilbert and Matt Mattox have accepted positions at Texas.

Gilbert coached Tulsa quarterbacks. Mattox coached the offensive line.

The effort to get Gilbert showed the level of urgency at a Texas program that went 5-7 this season and has struggled through consecutive losing seasons.

Tulsa promoted Mike Bloesch to replace Mattox as offensive line coach. He was Tulsa's offensive quality control coach and assistant offensive line coach.
