He owns the most wins in school history and now he'll coach his successor. Brian Johnson has been named Utah's new quarterbacks coach according to KTVX. 

This is a surprise move, since Johnson has not coached before at the collegiate level. Of course, he did spend a good amount of time with the coaches during the 2006 season and by all accounts, that time helped groom him into the elite quarterback we saw in the 2007 and 2008 seasons. 

Obviously there will be more on this when we hear official word from the Utah athletic department. For now, though, what are your thoughts? Risky move?  Great move? Discuss.
