Utah football hires USU running backs coach Ilaisa Tuiaki

Ilaisa Tuiaki, who coached running backs at Utah State the last three years, returns to Utah as, presumably, the new running backs coach here.

Tuiaki had been a graduate assistant for the Utes during their Sugar Bowl season and followed Gary Andersen, the Utes' defensive coordinator that year, to Logan when he was hired as their new head coach.

This is the second time Utah has gone to the Aggie coaching staff to fill a coaching vacancy. Last year, they also hired Chad Kauha'aha'a.

Tuiaki coached a pretty explosive running game last season and his ties to the state certainly help.

But I'm guessing fans up in Logan are getting tired of Utah poaching their coaches.
