The Princeton Tigers promoted Andrew Aurich to Offensive Coordinator on Friday. He replaces Sean Gleason, who was named the Oklahoma State Cowboys Offensive Coordinator.
Aurich was named the team’s Associate Head Coach before the 2017 season. He will also continue to coach the Offensive Line with the added title of Offensive Coordinator on Head Coach Bob Surace’s staff.
“I want to thank Coach Surace for entrusting the offense to me,” Aurich said. “I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of the offensive success we’ve had here since 2013. I’m excited to build on the successes we’ve had under both James Perry and Sean Gleason. We will continue to play football on offense the way Princeton fans have come to expect, fast & physical.”
Gleason was officially hired by the Cowboys on Jan. 27. With Gleason as Offensive Coordinator, the Tigers had the most explosive team in the entire Football Championship Subdivision (FCS).
They averaged 47 points per game, which was first in the FCS. They were second in the entire FCS with 536.8 yards per game. In addition, they were sixth with 295.5 yards per game.
Plus, the Tigers scored 470 points during the 2018 season. That is a new Ivy League record.
Princeton also had its first perfect season since 1964. They went 10-0 during the 2018 season.
“Coach Aurich has played an invaluable role in our offensive success over the recent years, both in the work he’s done with our offensive line and his weekly input in game planning during the season,” Surace said. “His role as run game coordinator served as the ideal training for the coordinator position because it allowed him to do everything in that position outside of calling plays. He has the type of instincts and football institution that make me confident in his ability to call plays.
“Our offense continues to be in exceptional hands, and I can’t wait to see what he puts together for the 2019 offense.”
