COLUMBIA, Mo. — University of Missouri head football coach Gary Pinkel announced a pair of new additions to his coaching staff on Monday, as Josh Henson has been named offensive coordinator, and Andy Hill has been named associate head coach, and will now coach quarterbacks.

Henson, 37, has been Mizzou’s co-offensive line coach since joining the MU staff from LSU prior to the 2009 season.

Hill, 50, just finished his 17th season on the Tiger sideline.  He has been part of Gary Pinkel’s staff for all 12 seasons at Mizzou, after serving for five seasons (1996-2000) on former Coach Larry Smith’s staff.

“I’m excited for both Josh and Andy, and for our team,” said Pinkel in a statement released by the school on Monday.  “They are both deserving of these opportunities and I’m confident that they are going to do great things to move our program forward.  Josh has been a key part of our system for four years and he will bring his own style to how we will operate.  Andy is an outstanding teacher of the game.  His experience and knowledge of our complex passing game, as well as his energy and drive, will translate well, and will give him a unique perspective that he’ll bring to the quarterback position group.”
