About the Author

Jay Norvell is one of the most influential coaches in college football, having coached NFL and NCAA stars Reggie Wayne, Ryan Broyles, Sage Rosenfels, Roland Williams, Doug Jolley, Juaquin Iglesias, and Manuel Johnson. The current co-offensive coordinator and coach of wide receivers at the University of Oklahoma, he has helped lead the team to bowl appearances in each of his five years on the OU staff, including the 2013 Cotton Bowl. Before coming to OU, he coached at UCLA, Nebraska, Iowa State, Wisconsin, Northern Iowa, and Iowa. He has coached in ten college bowl games and three BCS games, including the national championship in 2008 with the Oklahoma Sooners, and coached eight all-conference players prior to the 2012 season.

He has overseen countless record-breaking moments, including the OU 2010 season, which saw two-time All-American Ryan Broyles, the all-time career receptions leader in college football history, set eight major receiving records and Kenny Stills break the school’s receiving records for freshmen.
