Perry will take over the role of offensive coordinator after Ryan Carty left to become the head coach of the Delaware Blue Hens after four seasons at SHSU. This season, Sam Houston State averaged 41 points per game and 490.8 total yards per game behind a well-balanced offense.
Perry first served as an offensive coordinator for the Dartmouth Big Green from 1999 to 2004. He later became the offensive coordinator for the Hofstra Pride in 2006.
This past season, Perry was an offensive assistant for Rutgers after spending the previous six seasons as an offensive assistant for the Houston Texans.
Rutgers finished the 2021 season with an overall record of 5-8 after they lost to Wake Forest 38-10 in the Gator Bowl.
