Oklahoma State is adding a veteran to its defensive coaching staff.
Paul Randolph, the defensive line coach at Indiana for the past two seasons, has been hired as OSU’s defensive line coach, the team announced Thursday.
Randolph has 26 years of collegiate coaching experience. He replaces Greg Richmond, who was OSU’s full-time coach in that role since February of 2018. Richmond was the only OSU defensive line coach after Joe Bob Clements moved to coaching linebackers in 2022.
Randolph has been a defensive line coach for 23 years and has coached at many Division I schools. Before working at Indiana, Randolph coached at Memphis, Arizona State, Pittsburgh, Tulsa, Rice, Alabama and West Virginia, among others.
In 2023 under Randolph, Indiana ran a 4-2-5 defensive scheme.
While at Alabama from 2003-05, Randolph was named by Rivals as one of the nation’s top-25 recruiters. Randolph was co-defensive coordinator at Tulsa. The defense he oversaw at TU in 2010 led the country in interceptions.
After graduating from UT-Martin, Randolph had a lengthy playing career. He played 10 seasons in the Canadian Football League and was inducted into the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Hall of Fame in 2002.
