About this speaker
Herb Hand again proved in 2021 why he qualifies as one of the top offensive line coaches in the nation--as all five of his UCF starters earned some sort of postseason honors. Hand worked with Gus Malzahn at Tulsa in 2007-08 when they produced the number-one offense in the country and also coached the Auburn offensive line that helped the Tigers rank as one of three finalists for the 2017 Joe Moore Award as the top offensive line in the nation. Hand joined Malzahn's UCF football staff on Feb. 18, 2021, and heads into his second season in Orlando in 2022. Before coming to UCF Hand spent three seasons as co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Texas (2018-20) and enjoyed great success in stints at Auburn, Penn State, Vanderbilt, West Virginia and Tulsa. He has coached in offenses that produced all-time leading rushers at West Virginia, Tulsa and Vanderbilt. Hand has worked with programs that produced six conference championships in addition to three division championships.
