STILLWATER - Oklahoma State head football coach Mike Gundy has added Jemal Singleton to his coaching staff.
Singleton spent the previous eight seasons at his alma mater, Air Force, before recently joining the new staff at Indiana. He was scheduled to add recruiting coordinator responsibilities to his coaching duties with the Hoosiers.
"Jemal is a high character guy with a strong pedigree and a lot of discipline," Gundy said. "He played on and coached teams that had a lot of success. We're excited about he brings to Oklahoma State."
The San Antonio native continually added responsibilities in Colorado Springs, progressing from prep school assistant in 2000 to an assistant's spot with the Falcons' varsity and junior varsity squads in 2003 through 2005. In 2006, he became the running backs coach and in 2007 through 2010 he added running game coordinator to his responsibilities.
Singleton also spent two years as an Air Force public affairs officer.
He earned his bachelor's degree in social sciences at the Academy. He was a co-captain on the 1998 Air Force squad and helped the Falcons to 10-3 and 12-1 seasons his final two years as a player. It was the first time in the history of the Academy that the Falcons won at least 10 games in consecutive seasons. Singleton prepped at Taft High School in San Antonio and was an all-state honoree.
"I'm very excited about the opportunity to work at Oklahoma State and with Coach Gundy," Singleton said. "It's a phenomenal program. It's a school I knew a lot about while growing up in Texas and I'm excited to now be a Cowboy myself."
Singleton and his wife, Jennifer, have one daughter, Morgan.
