Skyhawk Football | Eric Stuedemann - Running Backs/Tight Ends Coach
Eric Stuedemann is in his second season on the UT Martin coaching staff. He will coach the Skyhawk running backs in 2013 after spending the 2012 season coaching the Skyhawk quarterbacks.
In Stuedemann's debut season at UT Martin, he helped mold Derek Carr into one of the most prolific quarterback seasons in the history of Ohio Valley Conference. Carr ranked in the top-10 in the nation in points responsible for (17.45 per game, fifth), passing yards per game (397.82, seventh) and total passing yards (3,276, eighth) while ranking in the single-season top-five in the OVC record book in touchdowns (31, second), passing yards (3,276, fourth) and completions (264, fifth).
In 2012, Carr was the only Football College Subdivision or Football Bowl Subdivision player to complete seven touchdown passes on two separate occasions (at Murray State on Oct. 13 and against Jacksonville State on Nov. 3). In the game at Murray State, he set the NCAA single-game mark with a 243.78 passing efficiency ranking after completing 42-of-46 passes for 560 yards (the most yards thrown by an OVC player all season) against zero interceptions. Carr earned an NFL tryout with the New York Giants after the season.
Stuedemann came to UT Martin from Mississippi State, where he served as an offensive graduate assistant for head coach Dan Mullen from January 2009 to February 2012.
While at Mississippi State, the Bulldogs posted a cumulative record of 21-15, won three Egg Bowls (vs. Ole Miss) and claimed the 2010 Gator Bowl and the 2011 Music City Bowl.
Before Mississippi State, Stuedemann coached defensive backs for a year at his alma mater, North Central College. He coordinated the secondary for a team which went 11-1 and was ranked in the top 20 in five defensive categories.
As a player at North Central, Stuedemann was an All-American wide receiver, a two-time offensive MVP, two-time team MVP, a team captain, a two-time all-conference selection, a twotime All-North Region selection and a Don Hansen Football Gazette All-American.
