- AFCA re-shared an interview they did with Head Coach Kyle Whittingham. In the interview they discussed what has kept him at Utah when other programs have come calling, his experience coaching with his dad, and his experience of getting passed over for the head coach job in favor of Urban Meyer. You can find the article with video clips of the interview here.
- LBs Devin Lloyd and Nephi Sewell both received invites to the NFL Combine. This is really exciting, especially for Nephi Sewell, who could significantly raise his draft stock with an athletic showing at the combine. I’m a little surprised to see none of Bamidele Olaseni, TJ Pledger, Nick Ford, or Britain Covey get an invite.
- Coach Scalley expressed how proud he was of Devin Lloyd and Nephi Sewell for their invites to the NFL Combine and then shared this great message.
No Combine invite? No problem!! These Utes, along with a handful of others were drafted anyway! All it takes is one team to love you!! Keep grinding, and believe in yourself!! pic.twitter.com/20EdRl04mI— Morgan Scalley (@SafetyPride) February 9, 2022
