Oklahoma State special teams coordinator Robby Discher leaving for full-time coaching position at Toledo

Oklahoma State special teams coordinator Robby Discher is leaving for a full-time coaching position at Toledo.

Oklahoma State fans have been wondering if they would lose a coach during the massive coaching carousel and apparently now they have.

Last season Oklahoma State football graduate assistant and special teams coordinator Robby Discher was lauded by Football Scoop as the Division I Special teams Coordinator of the Year and he was involved in a strong special teams season including one of the most famous returns in Cowboys football history with the Tyreek Hill punt return against Oklahoma in the Bedlam win. Now multiple sources have confirmed, although Toledo has not officially made an announcement, that Discher is joining the University of Toledo and new head coach Jason Candle as a full-time assistant and will coach special teams for the Rockets.

Discher came to Oklahoma State from Sam Houston State where he had handled special teams and been a full-time position coach.

While at Oklahoma State, Discher has also helped with coaching on the offensive side of the ball while coordinating special teams with the assistance of head coach Mike Gundy, who has also been involved with the special teams.

Discher is 29 years old and is a native of Kansas City and played wide receiver at William Jewell College. He should be greatly appreciated for his work on special teams at Oklahoma State for the past two seasons.
