UMHB FOOTBALL ASSISTANT COACH RETIRES

Belton, Texas – The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor football team will have to replace another long-time assistant coach following the retirement of offensive line coach Joe George. George retired at the end of May after spending 16 years as the leader of the Cru offensive line.

George's 16 years of service at UMHB made him the longest tenured assistant coach in the history of Cru football and closed out a 48-year coaching career. During his time with UMHB, George coached five American Southwest Conference Offensive Linemen of the Year and the Cru ranked in the top 20 in the nation in rushing offense in each of the last 13 seasons. UMHB posted a 167-29 overall record during George's time on staff and the Cru won 12 ASC titles and advanced to the NCAA Division III National Championships 13 times in that span. UMHB also won a Division III National Statistical Championship as the nation's top rushing offense under George's direction.

“I am so thankful that we were able to have Joe George serve on our staff and we have all benefitted so much for his experience,” Cru Head Coach Pete Fredenburg said. “When you walk down the hall where we post our All-American plaques and see that eight of those honor offensive linemen, you can see the legacy Coach George will leave. He has influenced so many student-athletes and coaches during his time here and we will certainly miss him.”

George also compiled a 46-33-1 overall record in eight years as a collegiate head coach at Sul Ross State University and McMurry University. He had three of those teams earn national rankings. George also made coaching stops at six different Texas high schools during his coaching career. Joe and his wife, Corliss, have two daughters and four grandchildren.

Former running backs Nathaniel Hogge will take over George's duties as offensive line coach. The search for a new full-time assistant to assume Hogge's former assignment is currently underway.
