Wright to be Owls' new offensive coordinator

What's making news on Thursday...

Montana State offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Brian Wright has accepted an offer to become Florida Atlantic’s offensive coordinator, a source confirmed to Owl Access.

Wright became the Bobcats’ offensive coordinator in 2010 after coaching at Youngstown State from 2001-09 and was the Penguins’ offensive coordinator from 2005-09.

Under Wright, the Bobcats had the No. 17 offense in the FCS, averaging 430.2 yards per game. In 2010, Montana State had the No. 4 offense in FCS with 451 yards per game as Montana State won the Big Sky Championship.

Other candidates for the position were Kansas co-offensive coordinator David Beaty, Toledo quarterbacks coach Scott Isphording and Ohio offensive coordinator Gerry Gdowski.

When Wright is officially hired he will join three other members of the staff under first-year coach Carl Pelini. After Pelini hired defensive coordinator Marvin Sanders, Pelini added Ross Watson, who will be a defensive backs coach, and Jeff Sims.
