Jim Harding Utah's new OL coach

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Harding coached five seasons at Wyoming as their offensive line coach before he was dismissed, along with the entire Christensen staff, last year.

According to reports, the Utes will replace Dan Finn with Jim Harding - the former OL coach, and co-offensive coordinator, at Wyoming.

Harding, along with Christensen, was let go at Wyoming after a losing season last year. He spent five years in Laramie and three seasons as a graduate assistant for the Missouri Tigers.

This will be his first job as a BCS position coach.

Harding was an offensive tackle for the Toledo Rockets when Christensen was their offensive coordinator, so, he certainly does have a relationship with Utah's new OC  and has experience blocking for the spread, both as a player and a play designer.

Hopefully this works out better than the Finn hire, who, like Harding, lacked any BCS experience.
