SJ Tuohy is expected to be the director of football operations on Gus Malzahn’s new UCF staff, sources told FootballScoop on Friday.

Tuohy is currently the assistant AD for football operations at Liberty, a job he has held for the past year. Prior to that, he was the assistant DFO at Arkansas in 2018-19.

Tuohy, who rose to fame as part of the Michael Oher story immortalized by the book and filmĀ The Blind Side, attended Loyola University of Maryland, then joined Chad Morris’s SMU staff in 2017 while obtaining a Master’s degree in humanistic studies.

In addition to his operations duties at Liberty, Tuohy is pursuing a Doctoral degree in strategic leadership.

Tuohy will bring some charisma to Gus’ staff.

Billy Ray Johnson held the position under Josh Heupel at UCF.

As always, stay tuned to The Scoop for the latest.
