Todd Monken Up for OC of the Year

Oklahoma State's Offensive Coordinator Todd Monken is among four candidates for the FootballScoop OC of the Year award presented by SpeedTracs. Monken has led the Cowboy offense to new highs in 2011 and ranks among one of the most powerful scoring machines in the country.

At times this season, Todd Monken’s offense at Oklahoma State has looked unstoppable. The Cowboys are averaging nearly 50 points per game. Through 11 games, they have 82 plays that went for over 20 yards (#2 in the nation). Even went they don't explode for big plays, it’s hard to stop them (#7 in 3rd down conversion %). Monken’s quarterback (who he also coaches) Brandon Weeden has completed 73 percent of his passes for 34 touchdowns and averages nearly 375 yards per game in the air. On the receiving end, Justin Blackmon has nearly 1,250 yards receiving and 15 TDs. Protection wise they are very sound as well, with the offensive line only allowing 1 per game. Oh, and on the ground, his top back is 30th in the nation in rushing. Solid.

Previous winners of the Offensive Coordinator of the Year award are Kevin Wilson (Oklahoma, 2008), Bryan Harsin (Boise State, 2009) and Gus Malzahn (Auburn, 2010).
