Doug Meacham: Bio, History, Twitter and More

After a season of offensive struggles, the Frogs hire the current Houston offensive coordinator and former Oklahoma State guru.


After a season of hell-on-earth not unlike Bruce Wayne’s stint in Bane’s prison, the offense may have finally found the light.

That light is Doug Meacham.

Though still technically unofficial, it looks like Meacham will be TCU’s next offensive coordinator.


Who Is Doug Meacham?

Meacham will be leaving his Offensive Coordinator position at Houston after one season with the Cougars

Meacham has also coached at Oklahoma State, Samford, Jacksonville State, Henderson State, Georgia Military, and NEO Junior College.

Should We Be Excited?


I’ll Be Your Doug…

Meacham is perhaps best known for his time at Oklahoma State where he shaped the offense to where they are today. While with the Cowboys, Meacham coached the inside receivers, tight ends, and also spent time as the passing game coordinator.

During his time at Oklahoma State, he helped lead the Cowboys to a Top-20 offense six times (2006-07, 09-12).

That same offense averaged 40 points or more between 2007 and 2012. Between 2010-12, that offense also surpassed 50 points 15 times, 60 points seven times, 70 points twice, and an 80-point game as well.

Meacham played a direct role in developing WR Josh Stewart and also worked with Dez Bryant and Justin Blackmon.

Meacham’s a proponent of the "run and gun" attack and given our skillful running backs and abundance of talented receivers, it’s a system that could work very, very well for the Frogs in the coming years.

He also has experience as an offensive line coach, and was an offensive lineman himself at OSU and blocked for Barry Sanders and Thurman Thomas.

A Little Bio:

Doug was born in Arlington, TX on December 16th, 1964.

He is an alumnus of Oklahoma State and served as an offensive lineman between 1984-87

Like we said, he blocked for Heisman Trophy winner Barry Sanders, Thurman Thomas, and was an honorable mention All-American his senior year.

Doug does indeed have a Twitter but has yet to tweet. I guess it’s just a matter of time before we know if he shares Gary’s love of the high-resolution gems known as "Earth Pics". Don't give up hope.

What Does This Mean For Burns and Anderson?

Not sure yet. Like we said, this whole thing is still "unofficial", but it’s possible that Anderson and Burns stay on as recruiters/positions coordinators.

In the Meantime, Celebrate a Little...
