BYU wide receivers coach Guy Holliday is heading to Utah to take the same position, according to a statement from the latter university. Holliday replaces Taylor Stubblefield, who it was announced would not return next year.
Utes coach Kyle Whittingham addressed Holliday’s hiring in the statement.
“Guy Holliday has a wealth of experience at the collegiate level and is a proven commodity, both as a wide receivers coach and as a recruiter,” said Whittingham. “Lewis did a great job coaching the defensive line at Hawaii before joining our staff and he also played the position for us, so it should make for a seamless transition. Freddie has been in our system for several years now and has been immersed in virtually every aspect of our program and is ready to take the next step as a position coach. With these moves our staff is now complete and we can turn our full attention to finishing off our 2016 recruiting class.”
Prior to BYU, Holliday coached at Mississippi State, UTEP and Western Michigan. Utah’s offense last year was very run-oriented so, hopefully, he can jump start the passing game a bit and make the Utes a key threat in the Pac-12 in 2016
