Horned Frogs have a nation's best 11-game winning streak
TCU quarterback set three single-season records in his first year as a starter
Haverty moves to wide receivers coach with Burns co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach
Rusty Burns enters his second season as co-offensive coordinator in 2013 and his fifth year overall on head coach Gary Patterson's TCU staff. After spending his first three seasons as wide receivers coach, Burns now tutors the Horned Frog quarterbacks.
In Burns' first two seasons with the Frogs, TCU set single-season school records for touchdowns, points scored, total offense and first downs.
Burns helped Josh Boyce to first-team All-Mountain West honors in 2011. Boyce hauled in 61 catches for 998 yards and nine touchdowns, including three during a road win at No. 5 Boise State.
Boyce's season was the second best in TCU history in terms of yards and touchdown receptions.
In 2010, Burns tutored Jeremy Kerley to a career-high 56 receptions, helping him become the 13th player in program history with at least 50 grabs in a season. Kerley also tied Mike Renfro's 1977 TCU record with 10 touchdown catches.
Kerley, a fifth-round draft pick of the New York Jets, and Jimmy Young received All-Mountain West Conference honors.
Boyce exploded onto the scene in 2010, pacing all TCU receivers with 646 receiving yards in being named a Freshman All-American. His 34 receptions, the most by a Horned Frog rookie since Cory Rodgers (37) in 2003, and six touchdown catches were both second on the team.
In his first season with the Horned Frogs, four of TCU's top-six receivers posted reception totals that surpassed their career totals entering the season. Three TCU receivers, Kerley, Antoine Hicks and Young, were named All-MWC, while Ryan Christian continued his career professionally with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.
Prior to arriving at TCU, Burns spent four seasons (2004-07) as the offensive coordinator at SMU. The Mustangs set a school record with 29 touchdown passes in 2006, while their 325 points scored ranked third all-time in SMU history.
Burns has also been an offensive coordinator at Cincinnati (2002-03), Wyoming (1999-01), Memphis (1996-98) and Connecticut (1980-88).
At Cincinnati, Burns directed a record-setting offensive attack in 2002 that helped lead the Bearcats to the Conference USA championship. Cincinnati set school marks for passing yards (3,649 yards), total offense (5,565 yards) and points (409). The Bearcats led C-USA in passing (260.6) and total offense (397.5) per game.
It was Burns' second stint at Cincinnati. He was the Bearcats' quarterbacks coach from 1989-91. Burns also served three seasons (1992-94) as an assistant coach at Georgia Tech.
In his final year at Wyoming, Burns had the most improved offense in the Mountain West Conference. Burns is a 1978 graduate of Springfield College, where he played quarterback. He also has a master's degree from Springfield. His first coaching position came at his alma mater as he served two seasons as offensive coordinator upon his graduation.
Burns and his wife, Debra, have two daughters: Kelly and Kirsten.
