Gary Pinkel keeps 'great asset' in offensive coordinator Josh Henson

Sam Greenwood

Josh Henson, who Gary Pinkel called a 'great asset' in August, will be the new offensive coordinator for the Missouri Tigers.

Josh Henson, who coached an injury-ravaged offensive line during Missouri's first season in the SEC and for three seasons before that, is expected to be named the Tigers' new offensive coordinator by Gary Pinkel. He reportedly agreed to take the job on Sunday, but a formal announcement is expected to be made this week.

Henson has been a member of a national champion in his career, as LSU's tight ends coach during their 2007 title-winning season. Pinkel seemed to foreshadow the eventual promotion for the young coach back in August when he said of Henson, "He's a young guy. I felt really fortunate to get him. …. He's a great asset. He fits in really well."

The new offensive coordinator is not the only member of the coaching staff to get a promotion recently -- long-time receivers coach Andy Hill will be taking over as the quarterbacks coach and will get a raise in 2013.
