STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma State has hired Princeton's Sean Gleeson as offensive coordinator.

Oklahoma State made the announcement Sunday in a news release.

Gleeson was offensive coordinator for a Princeton squad that went undefeated in 2018. The Tigers led the FCS in scoring offense with 47.0 points per game and ranked in the top 10 nationally in total offense, rushing offense, third-down conversion percentage and pass efficiency. The Tigers set an Ivy League record with 470 points and quarterback John Lovett was the league's Offensive Player of the Year.

Gleeson was running backs coach at Princeton from 2013-16 and offensive coordinator the past two years. During Gleeson's six years on the staff, the Tigers won three Ivy League titles.

Gleeson replaces Mike Yurcich, who left to become passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Ohio State.
