Utah's recruiting class is nearing completion with just a few days to go before signing day.

But who will be coaching the newly signed offensive players remains a mystery.

Former BYU coach Gary Crowton, who was among those who interviewed for the job, has joined the staff of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League.

Other coaches who were thought to be candidates have also taken jobs elsewhere, including former CSU coach Steve Fairchild (San Diego Chargers) and Dirk Koetter (Atlanta Falcons).

One possible candidate still available who has great familiarity with the position is Aaron Roderick.

Roderick served as co-offensive coordinator in 2010 and coached the wide receivers in 2011 to make room for Norm Chow, who served as the Utes' offensive coordinator for one year before taking the head job at Hawaii.
