ATHENS, Ohio— The Ohio football program is excited to welcome Andre Allen to its staff, as announced by fourth-year head coach Tim Albin
Allen will be joining the Bobcats as their wide receivers coach. He brings with him over 30 years of coaching experience, including 27 years at the City College of San Francisco. 
"I'm thrilled to introduce Andre Allen as our wide receivers coach, and to welcome him and his wife April to Athens," said Albin "His extensive experience coaching the receiver position and his track record of player development will help our players reach their full potential."
Most recently, Allen served as the wide receivers coach at UC Davis and Washington State for two years each. While in Pullman, the Cougars' 2021 Apple Cup win marked the program's largest margin of victory in the rivalry game's history. Allen coached four wideouts to conference accolades in 2021, marking the first set of Cougar wideouts to earn all-conference first or second team since 2004.
Allen came to Washington State by way of Hawai'i, where he served as the wide receivers coach from 2018-20. UH recorded back-to-back winning seasons with Allen, including a victory over BYU in the 2019 Hawai'i Bowl. In his two seasons in Honolulu, Allen saw the Hawai'i offense improve in total offense and passing offense while producing the country's ninth-rated passing offense in 2018 and the fifth-best passing attack in 2019. In 2019, three of Allen's receivers recorded 1,000-yard seasons, just the sixth team in NCAA FBS history to have a trio of 1,000-yard receivers in the same season.
While at the City College of San Francisco (CCSF), Allen coached 26 athletes who went on to earn FBS scholarships. Allen was CCSF's wide receivers coach (1992-96), passing coordinator and wide receivers coach (1997-2004) and offensive coordinator (2005-17). Allen helped CCSF capture three national titles (2007, 2011, 2015), eight Northern California championships, 21 conference titles and coached every Top-10 receiver in the CCSF record book.
Allen also managed and operated the Athletic Scholastic Achievement Program, which boasted a 90 percent transfer rate to football programs at four-year schools. 
A San Francisco native, Allen played at CCSF from 1987-89 and the University of Tennessee—Martin from 1989-91. He earned a bachelor's degree in liberal arts from Ashford. Allen and his wife, April, have five children: Tyrese, Jacob, Jasmine and twins Christian and Faith.
