OSU hires Bryan Nardo as new defensive coordinator

STILLWATER, Okla. — The Oklahoma State Cowboys has hired Bryan Nardo as its new defensive coordinator.

The announcement was shared on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

Nardo comes to Stillwater after serving as the defensive coordinator at Gannon University. He has previously coached at Youngstown State and Emporia State.

He’s coached for 15 years, with ten years in a defensive coordinator position. Nardo has a 71-35 career record in those ten years.

“I cannot thank Coach Gundy and the rest of the staff enough for their openness throughout this entire process and for trusting me with this responsibility,” Nardo said. “I am extremely excited to join the rich tradition of Oklahoma State football. I can’t wait to get to work and continue to build upon all of the great things that have been done here throughout history. I spent eight years recruiting the state of Oklahoma, seeing first hand the amount of pride people have in this university’s athletic programs. There’s no better place to be able to represent.”
