Dave Schramm is in his second season as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the Bulldogs. He was hired on Jan. 4, 2012.
In Schramm's first season, he transitioned the Bulldogs who had traditionally used a pro-style offense into an up-temp spread system designed to get the ball into the hands of the teams playmakers in space.
Fresno State found success right away running Schramm's system. The Bulldogs ranked 17th nationally and led the Mountain West in scoring at 37.9 points per game in 2012. Fresno State also ranked 16th nationally in total offense with 477.5 yards per game and 12th in passing offense at 325.6 yards per game.
Schramm's offense produced six games with at least five hundred yards of offense and scored 40 or more points in seven games - the second most in school history.
Carr went on to earn 2012 Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year accolades and Adams was the 2012 Mountain West Freshman of the Year.
Carr set a new Mountain West single-season record by throwing for 4,104 yards, which ranked eighth nationally. He had 37 touchdown passes against just seven interceptions on the season.
Adams set new MW freshman records for receptions in a season (102), receiving yards (1,312) and touchdown catches (14).
In addition to those two, Schramm also had two other first-team all-conference selections in running back Robbie Rouse and left tackle Austin Wentworth. Rouse became Fresno State's all-time leading rusher in 2012, a year in which he ranked 14th nationally with 1,490 rushing yards and 18th with 148.1 all-purpose yards. Rouse also caught 63 passes in Schramm's offense.
In all, Schramm's first season at Fresno State produced seven all-conference selections.
Schramm came to Fresno State after spending the previous seven seasons at Utah, where he assumed the roles of coaching the running backs, quarterbacks, tight ends and he also served as the recruiting coordinator and offensive coordinator throughout his tenure with the Utes.
He was the offensive coordinator for the Utes in 2009 and the co-offensive coordinator in 2010. Utah averaged 33.1 points per game that year under his direction and 29.1 in 2009.
He has 15 years of experience as a recruiting coordinator, including his first four seasons at Utah (2005-08). Schramm's 2006 and 2008 signing classes were touted as the top non-BCS conference classes in the nation by online recruiting service Rivals.com. Schramm's term at Utah is his second-longest at any school. He spent 12 seasons at San Diego State from 1990-2001, where he was the recruiting coordinator for his first 11 years, and also coached the offensive line (1992), safeties (1993), tight ends (1994-96) and running backs (1997-01).
With the Aztecs, Schramm coached second-team All-America running back Larry Ned and first-team all-conference safety Ricky Parker.
In 2002, Schramm went to Southwest Texas State as the assistant head coach and running backs coach.
Schramm's next stop was Montana, where he coached the offensive tackles and tight ends, and was the recruiting coordinator from 2003-04. Montana went 12-3 in 2004 and advanced to the NCAA Division I-AA championship game.
Schramm's first coaching job was at Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, where he was an assistant from 1984-87. He began his college coaching career in 1988 at Austin Peay coaching the running backs and tight ends. He spent a season as a graduate assistant at Nebraska in 1989 coaching the defensive secondary.
As a player, his undergraduate career was spent at Cornell (Iowa), Grossmont Junior College and Adams State (Colo.). As a freshman quarterback at Cornell, he led Division III in touchdown passes and helped the Rams to a No. 1 national ranking in total offense. He finished his career at Adams State.
A native of San Diego, Calif., Schramm received a bachelor's degree in physical education from San Diego State in 1988. He and his wife, Bonnie, have twin sons, D.J. and Dusty.
