NSU names Boone Feldt offensive line coach

An up-and-coming coach with experience beyond his years, Boone Feldt has been named Northwestern State’s offensive line coach, head coach Brad Laird announced Tuesday.

The son of a former college coach who won state high school championships in Texas, Feldt began his coaching career after his playing career was cut short by spinal surgery in college.

“Boone Feldt is a coach who has risen through the ranks from high school to FBS football,” NSU offensive coordinator Beau Blair said. “He knows exactly what steps are needed to elevate this program. He has the tools to get this program to the next level. His energy and intensity are electrifying and will drive this team toward success.

“He is a blue-collar, strap-your-boots-on coach with an intensity and energy that is unmatched. It did not take long from us talking to one another to see that we share a similar background and a similar approach that will make his transition to our staff seamless.”

Feldt comes to Northwestern State after spending the past four years at Texas State where he spent the 2022 season coaching tight ends. Feldt also was active in designing Texas State’s weekly offensive game plan and was responsible for run calls on game day.

Prior to that, Feldt spent three seasons as an assistant offensive line coach for the Bobcats. During that time, he worked closely with tackle Aaron Brewer, a second-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection who has spent the past three seasons with the Tennessee Titans after making the team as an undrafted free agent.

Feldt began his coaching career in 2014 after his playing career at North Texas was ended by spinal surgery. He started as an assistant offensive line coach at Permian High School in Odessa, Texas, before moving to the Division II level, assisting with the offensive line at UT-Permian Basin.

Feldt spent four seasons in total at UT-Permian Basin, the last as the offensive line coach. He also coordinated the Falcons’ run game.

Feldt is a graduate of UT-Permian Basin with a B.A. in history and earned his master’s degree in technical education from Texas State.
