Fresno State has officially parted ways with offensive coordinator Dave Schramm on Monday. The move does not come as a surprise as this was reported last week that head coach Tim DeRuyter would make the move.
"This was a very difficult decision but one that I feel is necessary moving forward," DeRuyter said in a statement.. "I will continue to evaluate our entire staff and make adjustments where necessary. I personally want to thank Dave Schramm for his contributions as he played a key role on our staff in helping us win two conference championships, a division title and earn three bowl game invitations.
"Under his leadership, our offense led the nation in passing in 2013 and ranked in the top 10 in both scoring and total offense. Our results the past two years however have fallen short of expectations which led to this decision."
Schramm spent the previous four seasons running the offense for Fresno State after coming over from Utah where he held various offensive roles from 2005-11.
The offense was performing well in the years with future NFL players like Derek Carr and wide receiver Devante Adams, plus practice squad players Isiah Burse and Josh Harper. Having that type of talent would make any job easy for an offensive coordinator, but when the talent left the productivity seemingly went with those players.
There were quarterback issues dating back to the 2014 season when he had to find a replacement for Carr, and since then it was a rotating door of signal callers with very little success.
DeRuyter stated that he wants an offense that is multi-dimensional and one who is ran by a coach who has a track record of success.
