Tulsa near deal with Montgomery, source says

Ponca City Now - December 12, 2014 7:49 am

UNDATED (AP) – A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that Tulsa is close to an agreement to hire Baylor offensive coordinator Phillip Montgomery as its head coach.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because a deal had not been completed.

Montgomery has been calling the plays for one of the most prolific offenses in college football. Baylor is the only team in FBS to be ranked in the top four in the country in total offense each of the last four seasons.

The 42-year-old Texan has spent most of his career as an assistant to Baylor coach Art Briles, first at Stephenville (Texas) High School and then at Houston (2003-07) and Baylor.

Tulsa fired Bill Blankenship earlier this month after the Golden Hurricane went 2-10.
