A former Texas Longhorns football player is now a coach in Stillwater, as the Oklahoma State Cowboys have hired Lorenzo Joe as an offensive quality control coach:

Joe graduated last spring with a degree in physical sports and culture.

An Abilene Cooper product who grew up a fan of the Longhorns, Joe was a consensus four-star prospect in the 2014 class and ranked among the top 200 player nationally and the top 30 players at wide receiver, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Unfortunately for Joe, he arrived at a tumultuous time for Texas, as he originally committed to Mack Brown before playing for Charlie Strong and Tom Herman. During his four seasons with the Longhorns, he never quite had the expected impact, catching 34 passes for 448 yards and two touchdowns.

However, Joe did earn the favor of Herman’s coaching staff as a senior, starting the final 12 games and catching 20 passes for 246 yards and a touchdown. Most of all, he displayed the attributes that should serve him well as a coach — he was reliable, hard working, and the coaches trusted him.

So don’t be surprised if he turns out to be an excellent coach.
