Rice announced Wednesday it has hired Stanford offensive coordinator Mike Bloomgren its next head coach, as Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel first reported Tuesday. Bloomgren, in his seventh season as an offensive assistant at Stanford, will replace David Bailiff, who was fired Nov. 27 after his 11th season with the program. Rice went 1-11 this year. Bloomgren, 40, has been the Cardinal’s offensive coordinator for the past five seasons. Previously, he served as Stanford’s offensive line coach in 2011 and 2012 following four years with the New York Jets. Most notably, Bloomgren coached both Andrew Luck and Christian McCaffrey during his time with the Cardinal. At Stanford, Bloomgren also crossed paths with Rice athletic director Joe Karlgaard, a Stanford alum who served as associate athletics director for development at the university from 2011-13.  – Sam Cooper, sports.yahoo.comRead More
