The search for former Oklahoma State offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Yurcich's replacement is over.

Sean Gleeson is OSU's new offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, OSU Athletics announced in a press release Sunday.

Gleeson spent the past six years at Princeton as the Tigers' offensive coordinator and led them to an undefeated 2018 season in the Football Championship Subdivision.

Gleeson's offense at Princeton led the FCS in scoring offense, averaging 47.0 points per game, and set an Ivy League record with 470 points scored in 2018.

"We are excited to have Sean join our staff," OSU coach Mike Gundy said in the release. "He comes with expertise in quarterback play. Both his offenses the last two years have dominated the Ivy League and have produced two different quarterbacks who were named Ivy League Offensive Player of the Year."

In Gleeson’s six years at Princeton, the Tigers’ offense averaged 36.9 points per game, which marked the program’s highest output over a six-year stretch in program history.

In his first year on staff, the Tigers won the Ivy League and ranked second nationally in scoring offense with 43.7 points per game.

Gleeson played quarterback at Williams College, where he graduated in 2007 with a degree in English.

While at Williams, Gleeson was the highest-rated passer in the New England Small College Athletic Conference in 2005 (minimum 100 attempts), with a rating of 163.6. His team finished 8-0 in 2006. He received the Farley Award that year, which is presented to the member of the football team who demonstrates superior qualities of dedication, loyalty and sacrifice for the betterment of the team.

His first job after graduation came at Delbarton School in New Jersey, where he served as a teacher and coached football, baseball and bowling. His first job in college football came as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Fairleigh Dickinson from 2011-12, before he moved on to Princeton.

Gleeson joined the Princeton staff in 2013 in the role of running backs coach. He held that position before he was promoted to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2017.

"What attracted me to Oklahoma State was coach Gundy and his leadership," Gleeson said in the release. "You look around the landscape of college football and see how long he has been there. He's built a consistent winner and has a great staff to work with. Now I'm excited to get pointed in the direction of the players and get to work."
