Whittingham has liked his team’s progress through the first quarter of spring ball, but will get a better idea how the team is developing this week. The Utes will practice Tuesday and Thursday at Rice-Eccles Stadium from 3 to 5 p.m. then hold a scrimmage on Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon.

The scrimmage will offer the first chance to see how Johnson has influenced the offense.

"So far it has been a seamless transition," Whittingham said of his new coordinator. "He has added a few wrinkles, but at this point we are still doing a lot of teaching."
