"We're really excited to have Greg as part of our staff and are ready for him to bring something new to our program," said assistant athletic director for strength and conditioning Rob Glass. "Any time you bring a former player back to be involved and help advance your program, you?re excited about that. His professional experience is going to be big in helping our players to understand the challenges that they face while working on a degree and hoping for an opportunity to play on Sundays. Greg can relate to those hurdles and help navigate them."
Richmond, an Oklahoma City native, played defensive end for the Cowboys from 2000-2003. He capped his stellar career with a senior season in which he recorded 72 tackles and 12.5 sacks on his way to being named first-team All-Big 12. During his career at OSU, he started 31 contests, recording 184 tackles as well as 21.5 sacks, which ranks third on the school?s all-time sacks list.
Richmond graduated from Oklahoma State in December 2003 and went on to play two years in the National Football League with the Philadelphia Eagles.
"This is very exciting for me. When I made the decision that I wanted to get into coaching, this is the place that I wanted to get started," said Richmond. "I have the opportunity to work around other coaches that truly care about me. At Oklahoma State, it's more than just sports. It?s also about family. This is the place where I became a man and this is the place where I want to continue to grow as a person."
