Utah has a new offensive coordinator.
The school announced on Friday that it had hired former Wyoming coach Dave Christensen as its offensive coordinator.
“As one of the pioneers of the spread offense, Dave Christensen is an innovative coach and was the architect of one of the top offenses in the country during his time at Missouri,” said Utah coach Kyle Whittingham. “We feel fortunate he was available and interested in joining our program, and he will be a great fit with our staff. We want an explosive offense and that’s been a trademark of Dave’s throughout his career as an offensive coordinator.”
Christensen had spent five seasons at Wyoming, going 27-35 before being fired at the end of this season.
As for who Christensen is replacing, Utah used both Dennis Erickson and Brian Johnson as co-offensive coordinators in 2013. Both Erickson and Johnson have been demoted to running backs and quarterbacks coach respectively.
