    Brian Lindgren joined the San Jose State University football staff in March 2012 as the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach. He comes to the Spartans after spending six seasons as an assistant coach at Northern Arizona University.

    During the 2008 through 2011 seasons, he was the quarterbacks coach and called plays for the Lumberjacks' offense that averaged just above 28 points and 410 yards of total offense a game. Nearly one of every four games since 2008, Northern Arizona scored 40 or more points. He was in charge of the passing game in 2008 and added the duties of offensive coordinator in 2009.

    In 2009 (fifth) and 2011 (20[SUP]th[/SUP]), the Lumberjacks were ranked among the top-20 passing teams in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). During his first two seasons at Northern Arizona, Lindgren coached wide receivers (2006) and running backs (2007).

    The 2004 graduate of the University of Idaho was a first-team All-Sun Belt Conference quarterback during his playing days. He threw for 6,541 yards and 44 touchdowns in three seasons with the Vandals. His career passing marks still rank among the top-10 at the university and his completion percentage (61.0) and passing efficiency figure (136.0) are in the Vandals' top-five. Heading into the 2012 season, Lindgren set and still holds a NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) single-game record for most total offense in a game by a sophomore with 657 yards against Middle Tennessee State in 2001.

    A Walla Walla, Wash., native, Lindgren has a master's degree in educational leadership from Northern Arizona University. He began his coaching career in 2005 at the University of Redlands.
    Lindgren and his wife, Bradee, have a son, Bronson, and a daughter, Blake.

    Our new OC, Brian Lindgren. It's from a few years ago when he was at NAU, but it was the only youtube I could find with him in it. Looks taller than your average OC.

    I heard when he was hired, MikeMac said 'here's our offense/playbook...learn it'. I like that....it's the system that matters, not an individual coordinator.

    I'm going out a limb and going to say we will be better offensively next year :lol:
