Utah coach Kyle Whittingham wished the best for his now former assistant, Jay Hill, who is leaving Utah's staff to become the head coach at Weber State.
Whittingham said in a statement that Hill will be missed.
"He is one of the top special teams coaches in the country and he is ready to become a head coach," he said. "We wish him all the best as he takes the next step in his career."
Having completed nine seasons with the Utes, Hill has been on the coaching staff longer than anyone except Whittingham.
Hill was one of Utah's highest paid assistants with a base salary of $225,000, the same base that co-offensive coordinator Brian Johnson and passing game coordinator Aaron Roderick had for the 2013 season.<
