SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Utah Utes have hired Dennis Erickson as co-offensive coordinator.
The team announced the move Monday.
The 65-year-old Erickson will share the coordinator title with 26-year-old Brian Johnson, a former Utah quarterback.
Erickson won national titles in 1989 and 1991 as coach at Miami. He has been a head coach at six universities - three of them Pac-12 Conference schools.
He is a three-time Pac-12 coach of the year, most recently with Arizona State in 2007 when he led the Sun Devils to a share of the conference title in his first season.
He also coached at Washington State and Oregon State and has a 179-96-1 record over 23 seasons.
The Utes are coming off a 5-7 season in which they finished a disappointing 3-6 in conference play.
