Chris Brasfield is in his third season as Oregon State's running backs coach and in January of 2012 was selected as one of the top 50 recruiters in the country by 247Sports.
Brasfield led a talented and young running back corps in 2012 that combined for 1,680 yards and 24 touchdowns, led by redshirt-freshman Storm Woods' 941 yards and 13 touchdowns rushing. Woods' 13 touchdowns on the ground marked the eighth-most in a single season for a Beaver.
In 2011 the promising season by true freshman running back Malcolm Agnew was derailed by a hamstring injury. Agnew set the OSU freshman record with 223 yards rushing in the season opener in what was the first true freshman in modern history to start at OSU ever at the position.
Brasfield joined the Oregon State staff in March of 2011, after serving the 2010 season as a defensive graduate assistant coach at the University of Oregon. While at Oregon, he worked with the defensive backs, oversaw the defensive interns and student-assistants, evaluated recruiting video and was involved in on-campus recruiting.
Brasfield arrived at Oregon after three-plus seasons at Samford University in Birmingham where he was the running backs coach. While with the Bulldogs he coached (the first two seasons) the school's career rushing leader Chris Evans, who accounted for 4,575 yards and 33 touchdowns. While at Samford he also participated one summer in the NFL Minority Coaching Internship program with the Tennessee Titans.
Brasfield's NFL experience isn't limited to his stint with the Titans, he also participated in the internship program with the Oakland Raiders in 2000 and was an area scout for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2001-02).
The native of San Antonio, Texas began his coaching career in 1996 as a graduate assistant with wide receivers and special teams responsibilities at Midwestern State in Wichita Falls, Texas. He later served as a wide receivers coach at Southwest Texas State (now Texas State) for the 1999 season and as an offensive graduate assistant coach at TCU during the 2001 preseason.
Brasfield has extensive high school football coaching experience as well, that includes at Fort Worth's Country Day and All Saints Episcopal, and at Chicago Hope Academy in Illinois.
Brasfield played collegiately at TCU in 1994 and '95 as a wide receiver and return specialist after transferring to the Horned Frogs from UTEP where he was a team member from 1991-93. He is a 1996 graduate of TCU with a bachelor's degree in economics and in 2001 with his master's in liberal arts. He helped TCU capture the 1994 Southwest Conference title and played in that season's Independence Bowl. Brasfield received the 1996 Ralphe Lowe Sportsmanship Award at TCU.
He is married to the former Sherresa Ward, a 1997 OSU graduate, and the couple has three children, Tyson, Taylor and Truman.
