(STATS) - McNeese named South Florida offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert as its new coach Wednesday night.
The 40-year-old Gilbert has spent the last three seasons coaching under Charlie Strong - the last two at USF and in 2016 at Texas. His Bulls offense averaged 444.2 yards of total offense and 31.5 points per game during the regular season this year.
"We are looking forward to the culture that Coach Gilbert will build and to the competitive team that he will lead on the field," McNeese athletic director Bruce Hemphill said.
Gilbert was a quarterback at Angelo State before graduating in 2002. His lone coaching stint on the FCS level was under Dino Baber as Eastern Illinois' offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2012 and '13.
