Report: Marcus Arroyo a Candidate for San Jose State Job

Published

Oklahoma State running backs coach Marcus Arroyo is on the short list for San Jose State’s head coaching vacancy, Bruce Feldman reports. Arroyo played quarterback for the Trojans from 1998-2002 and coached there from 2006-2008, first as a graduate assistant and then as quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator.

Arroyo is also reportedly up for Nevada following the firing of head coach Brian Polian.

Here’s the full bit from Football Scoop.

We can add that sources tell us Nevada has reached to to him as well; plus Jeff Tedford at Fresno State. Interesting times…Arroyo’s wife swam at San Jose State and he previously served as the co-OC playcaller from ’06-08.

The 36-year-0ld coach has been with OSU since 2015. He has been recognized as a skilled recruiter, and he played a big part in obtaining star running backs Chuba Hubbard and J.D. King for the 2017 class. Given how much Mike Gundy values continuity, this is not a great development (but also one you knew would eventually come).

“As I said years ago,” Mike Gundy said this week of bringing in a different offensive coach (Mike Yurcich). “I don’t know how many years he’s been here now but, as I said years ago when we brought him here, we wanted to bring stability to the program where we weren’t bringing a guy in and a guy leaving every year.”

Hopefully that’s true again this offseason, but the more you win and the better you recruit, the more difficult it becomes.
