Belton, TX – Former University of Mary Hardin-Baylor quarterback and student assistant coach Cody Fredenburg has been named to the Cru football coaching staff as a full-time offensive assistant, Cru head coach Pete Fredenburg announced today. The younger Fredenburg fills the spot opened by the promotion of Jeff Shinn to offensive coordinator and he will primarily work with the UMHB quarterbacks and receivers.
Cody Fredenburg returns to his alma mater after a two-year stint as the running backs coach at Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches. The Lumberjacks posted a 15-8 combined record in his two seasons on the coaching staff. Fredenburg also spent two seasons as tight ends and receivers coach at Southern Mississippi University and served as a graduate assistant coach at Oklahoma State University for three years. He started his coaching career as a student assistant coach at UMHB and was part of the coaching staff during the Cru's Stagg Bowl run in 2004. Cody Fredenburg is also the youngest son of UMHB head coach Pete Fredenburg.
"We are extremely excited to have Cody join our staff, not just on a personal level, but also professionally," Pete Fredenburg said. "I think he can really add a dimension to our football program because of his experience and what he's learned during his other coaching stops. Cody has a wealth of knowledge and we expect him to have a big impact on our quarterbacks and receivers."
Cody Fredenburg spent four seasons as the starting quarterback for UMHB and he led the team to a 36-5 record in that time, setting every school passing record in the process. He was a four-time ASC All-Conference selection, a three-time Academic All-ASC pick and was a finalist for the Gagliardi Trophy following the 2003 campaign. Fredenburg led the Cru to two ASC titles and a pair of NCAA postseason appearances during his playing career.
"I am very excited to be back home working with my father and some people that I consider very good friends," Cody Fredenburg said. "Now it is time to get to work and try to win a National Championship at UMHB."
Cody Fredenburg graduated from UMHB in 2004 with a degree in exercise and sport science and earned a Master's of Science in Coaching from Southern Mississippi University in 2009. Cody and his wife, Lindsay, have a son, Abbott.
