Signs point toward Doug Meacham becoming TCU football’s new offensive coordinator | The Star-Telegram

A surprise to absolutely no one.

Doug Meacham is expected to receive the promotion from inside receivers/tight ends coach to OC, a source confirmed on Thursday afternoon. Meacham has updated his Twitter bio to reflect the change.

However, a source said the promotion is not finalized yet. It is still in the paperwork process like Kenny Hill’s promotion from analyst to quarterbacks coach.

TCU coach Gary Patterson has not commented on staff changes this offseason. He likely won’t do so until everything is official. He waited until February last year to announce changes going into the 2020 season such as bringing back Meacham and hiring Jerry Kill as a special assistant.

Nelson also played defense against Heritage and picked off two passes.

Baylor prepares for second match-up with TCU | KCENTV

TCU Women’s Basketball has played great at home over the last two weeks, but the road has not been kind. Things don’t get any easier in Waco tonight, either.

January 2 was the last time the two faced off. Both head coaches were not present due to COVID-19 contact tracing.

“It was the first game I missed in a long time,” Baylor Head Coach Kim Mulkey said. “I am looking forward to playing them again.”

Both programs have won two of their last three games. Baylor has outscored each team by 19 or more points.

One of the main offensive focus’ for the Lady Bears Wednesday is Lauren Heard, a Horned Frog that ranks sixth in the Big 12 for points per game with 17.9.

Big 12 reschedules TCU-Texas Tech men’s basketball game | Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Plenty of fluidity in this year’s schedule.

The Big 12 has rescheduled the TCU-Texas Tech men’s basketball game in Fort Worth for Feb. 15. A start time will be announced later.

The game had been originally scheduled for Jan. 20, but was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak within TCU’s program. Coach Jamie Dixon revealed he tested positive and the Frogs didn’t meet the Big 12’s threshold of six players. TCU also had to postpone Saturday’s game against Texas.

With the games now rescheduled, TCU will play three games in a five-day stretch; at Texas on Feb. 13, hosting Tech on Feb. 15 and at Tech on Feb. 17.

Cowboys Draft Target: TCU Horned Frogs S Trevon Moehrig | Inside the Star

It would be awesome to see Tre close to home, but he deserves better than the Cowboys.

Cowboys Fit:

Dan Quinn’s heavy Cover 1-3 coverage scheme fits Trevon Moehrig’s skill set to near perfection. He would be an immediate upgrade over Xavier Woods and arguably be the best cover safety the Cowboys have had since Darren Woodson. Moehrig’s coverage skills, ball skills, and range would solidify the back end of Dallas’ defense for the foreseeable future and finally give them someone to be feared in the passing game. As a projected late first, early second-round pick the Cowboys will have to hope he’s still on the board for them with Pick 44 when they are on the clock.
