      Josh Henson named Missouri offensive coordinator

      University of Missouri Head Football Coach Gary Pinkel today announced promotions for a pair of staff members on the offensive side of the ball.

      Josh Henson has been named offensive coordinator, and Andy Hill has been named associate head coach, and will now coach quarterbacks.

      Henson, 37, has been Mizzou's co-offensive line coach since joining the MU staff from LSU prior to the 2009 season.

      The Missouri offensive line helped pave the way to a conference team rushing title in 2011 (ranking 9th nationally), and also to a final national rank of 12th in total offense (475.54 ypg).

      Six of his offensive line pupils at MU have won all-star honors nine times in his tenure, including the most recent being true freshman guard Evan Boehm, who was named a 1st-Team Freshman All-American by College Football News following the recently completed season.

      Hill, 50, just finished his 17th season on the Tiger sideline.

      Hill has a long-standing track record of coaching and recruiting success at Mizzou, and he's helped develop three 1st-Team All-Americans in the past five seasons - WR Jeremy Maclin, WR Danario Alexander and TE Michael Egnew.

      He has been part of Gary Pinkel's staff for all 12 seasons at Mizzou, after serving for five seasons (1996-2000) on former Coach Larry Smith's staff.
