A good problem, probably. Six practices into spring, there are six running backs splitting reps. More are on their way this fall. Erickson needs to pare down the field, but they’re making it tough because, darn it, they’re all playing pretty well. As of Monday, your way-too-early depth chart seems to be: 1, junior Bubba Poole; 2, (tie) junior Devontae Booker and redshirt freshman Troy McCormick;...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

Nor does he seem to care if that’s how others see it. This is a man who led Miami to two national championships, coached twice in the NFL and popularized the one-back offense that is the basis for how many teams play football today. Given that, is it really hard to believe he doesn’t attach any special value to the title of Utah offensive coordinator? “That’s not why I’m in it,” Erickson says. “I’m not about promotions or demotions. ...

He’s been Oregon linebacker Derrick Malone. Now he gets to be Utah linebacker Gionni Paul. A former ACC linebacker of the week at Miami, Paul was typecast in his redshirt 2013 season as the best linebacker on the Utes’ opposing team.
