Vols add offensive guru Joe Osovet to support staff

The Vols add yet another guy to their growing coaching support staff with the arrival of Joe Osovet, a top JUCO coach known for his offensive prowess. He’s expected to be an offensive analyst.

Osovet made the announcement via his Twitter account:

Osovet is the head coach and offensive coordinator at ASA College in Brooklyn, New York, and has made the ASA Avengers a JUCO powerhouse. They compiled a 9-1 record this season and put up 38.1 points and 446.3 yards of total offense per game. They scored 67 points or more in three games. Over the past six years, he’s scored 75 points or more five times. Osovet has been heavily utilizing RPOs since 2001 and has studied under Rich Rodriguez and Art Briles.

Osovet had been a candidate for the then-vacant wide receivers coaching job, but that gig went to David Johnson. Nevertheless, he and Jeremy Pruitt apparently go way back to Pruitt’s days at Georgia, and Pruitt wanted him on the staff badly enough to offer him a quality control assistant.

I’m really intrigued by this hire. Probably more than most of the others under Pruitt
