Larry Edmondson heads into his sixth year and first as the co-offensive coordinator. He is in his fourth season of coaching the Owls quarterbacks after joining the team on January 30, 2009 as the Owls' wide receiver coach.

In 2012, Edmondson saw junior Taylor McHargue produce the fourth-best season in school history in both passing and total offense, while redshirt freshman Driphus Jackson was able to step in when McHargue was injured and lead the Owls to victory in the Armed Forces Bowl.

Edmondson is entering his 25th year of college coaching, including 14 years of coaching wide receivers. He was the wide receivers coach at SMU from 2004 to 2007, Auburn in 1997-98, Mississippi State in 1996, LSU from 1991-94 and at Southern Miss from 1988-90. He has also served as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at SMU (2002-03) and Louisiana-Lafayette (1999-2001).

While at SMU, Edmondson guided Bobby Chase to All-C-USA honors in 2005 and Emmanuel Sanders to All-Conference and freshman All-America honors in 2006. As the offensive coordinator at Louisiana-Lafayette, he constructed an offense that set six school records in 2001 and was credited with the development of sophomore quarterback Jon Van Cleave, who led the Sun Belt Conference in passing yards per game. In addition to coaching wide receivers at Auburn, Edmondson also oversaw the Tigers recruiting efforts. Auburn won the 1997 SEC West Division championship and went on to defeat Clemson in the 1998 Peach Bowl.

A 1983 graduate of Texas A&M where he lettered as a tight end and was a teammate of Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, (and now coaches Kubiak's son Klein, a freshman at Rice), Edmondson began his coaching career as a graduate assistant with the Aggies from 1984 to 1986. He served as a GA at Arizona in 1987 before joining Curly Hallman's staff at Southern Miss as wide receivers coach in 1988.

In his first year at USM, the Golden Eagles went 10-2 including a 38-18 win over UTEP in the Independence Bowl. Southern Miss opened the 1990 season with a win over Florida State and played in the All-American Bowl that year, and also posted wins over both Alabama and Auburn during his time there.
