UCF officially announced that Missouri offensive coordinator Josh Heupel will be the Knights’ new head coach on Tuesday morning.
I’m extremely excited about the opportunity to represent UCF,” Heupel said in an official statement. “What makes this opportunity so unique is the vision of the leadership from President John Hitt, Provost Dale Whitaker and Director of Athletics Danny White. Their vision for this becoming one of the premier programs in the country makes this an exciting opportunity. That vision, the amazing campus, along with the recruiting base not only allows you to have immediate success but sustained success. I’m very excited to get a staff together and get to work with our wonderful student-athletes.”
