Utah close to announcing new offensive coordinator

Finally, after over a month of speculation, it appears we're close to the end of the wait.

The Utes are expected to announce the hiring of a new offensive coordinator this week and a decision might even come down in the next 24 or 48 hours.

Since Norm Chow left in December to take the Hawaii job, the search has yielded little names. In fact, only one name has definitively been linked to the position - Gary Crowton. However, nothing came of his interview and the lack of names and the expected leaks when an announcement is close, you've got to suspect that, in the end, the hire will come from within - which seems even more likely when you realize the announcement will be made through a press release.

But that's just speculation on my part. We heard last week from Ted Miller that the hire could potentially come from the NFL and that's still a possibility. Either way, because of the lack of names thrown around, even if just in passing, I'm starting to believe it will be Aaron Roderick.

We'll see, though.
