Former Montana head coach Bob Stitt has reportedly accepted an offensive analyst position on Mike Gundy’s staff at Oklahoma State, according to Sports Illustrated’s Bruce Feldman.
Stitt spent the last three seasons coaching the Grizzlies and went 21-14 (14-11 Big Sky), before athletic director Kent Haslam decided not to renew his contract in November.
“These decisions are always difficult, and I understand how this impacts many people,” Haslam said via ESPN. “I appreciate Bob’s contributions to the University of Montana and Grizzly athletics. He worked tirelessly to move the football program forward with a focus on overall student-athlete success.”
Montana ended each of its last two seasons with losses to Montana State in the Brawl of the Wild, which kept it out of the FCS Playoffs in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1990-92.
Stitt had previously coached Colorado Mines, which included a 108-62 (83-44 RMAC) overall record and three NCAA Division II playoff appearances during 15 seasons.
He has also previously worked as an offensive coordinator at Harvard (1999), Austin (1994-98) and Doane (1990-93).
