MISSOULA — Former Montana football coach Bob Stitt is now a Bobcat — a Texas State Bobcat.
Stitt, who was the Griz head coach from 2015-17, was hired as the Texas State offensive coordinator, the school announced Wednesday. He spent the 2018 season as an offensive analyst at Oklahoma State.
Stitt will join the staff of Texas State head coach Jake Spavital, who was hired by the Bobcats last week after having been the West Virginia offensive coordinator.
Texas State is a Football Bowl Subdivision team playing in the Sun Belt Conference, a non-Power Five conference.
Stitt went 21-14 overall in 14-11 in conference play during his three seasons at Montana, including 1-2 against Montana State. The Griz went 1-1 in Stitt’s lone FCS playoff appearance in 2015, losing to North Dakota State, a team the Griz upset in Stitt’s debut as the head coach.
Before coming to Montana, Stitt spent 15 years as the head coach at the Colorado School of Mines, a Division II team.
Stitt didn’t respond to a request for comment.
