Rice head football coach David Bailiff announced on Friday that Anthony Steward has been promoted to running backs coach for the Owls. Steward has worked with the Rice running backs since 2012 as an offensive graduate assistant and fills the vacancy on the staff created by the departure of John Reagan.
"AJ has done a great job working day-to-day with our running backs the last two years and has earned this promotion," Bailiff said. "He brings great energy and personality to everything he does. I know he is counting down the hours until it's time to hit the field on Tuesday (for the start of Spring Practice) with the rest of the staff and get to work."
Steward came to Rice in 2012 after graduating from the University of Kansas with a BSE in Health and Physical Education.
He was a four-year letterman at Kansas, capping his career with by playing in all 12 games (five starts) as a senior tight end in 2011. Originally recruited as a quarterback, Steward found his first playing time as a wide receiver before switching to tight end.
He was a member of the 2008 Orange Bowl Championship team, earning the Otto Schnellbacher Scout Team Player of the Year as a quarterback, as well as the 2008 Insight Bowl champions.
