Cal Football Coach Marques Tuiasosopo reportedly leaving to Rice to become the Offensive Coordinator

A step up! is reporting that current Cal Tight End Coach Marques Tuiasosopo is heading to Rice to become its new Offensive Coordinator.

Tuiasosopo will be stepping into the Offensive Coordinator left by Jerry Mack, who is joining Tennessee’s new staff. He will be joining the Mike Bloomgren staff. Bloomgren has some ties to Tuiasosopo, as Bloomgren coached at Stanford from 2011 to 2017, before taking the job as the Head Coach at Rice. Coach Tuiasosopo was the last remaining original position coach on the offense that Coach Wilcox brought in. He was originally the QB coach, passing game coordinator and recruiting coordinator before moving to Tight Ends in 2019. His prior stops at UCLA and Washington also included the roles of associate head coach, tight ends and QB coach.
