Gilbert on Foreman, first season at Texas, running back

Even though it is his first year at Texas, offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert will see a familiar face when the Iowa State Cyclones come to town this Saturday. First year Cyclones head coach Matt Campbell was head coach at Toledo in 2014 when he squared off with Bowling Green offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert, with Toledo topping Bowling Green 44-28. Gilbert’s experience against Campbell is something he will reach into when he is calling plays this Saturday.

Gilbert on OU emotion, personnel, play calling

Prior to a game important between the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners in the Red River Shootout, emotions in both programs can run high. After all, rivalry games are when programs, coaches, players and fans show their total disdain for the opposite program. Texas offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert knows the emotion associated with the Red River Shootout, but he has never experienced it himself. He’s looking forward to being a part of it.
