The shakeups continue for Utah’s football staff as Dan Finn, who has coached the offensive line for the last two seasons, has been fired according to Utah school officials.
It’s likely Jim Harding, Wyoming’s co-offensive coordinator for the 2013 season, will be named to Utah’s staff, reuniting him with his former coach Dave Christensen, who was named Utah’s offensive coordinator in December.
Harding has had a hand in coaching Wyoming’s offensive line the last five seasons.
Utah’s offensive line was supposed to be the team’s strength in the 2013 season, with senior Jeremiah Tofaeono and sophomore "C.J." Poutasi anchoring the left side, but instead it was one of the weak areas, with Utah giving up 23 sacks on the season.
Finn, who was a graduate assistant for the Utes in 2005-06, coached at Idaho from 2007-10 and at San Diego State in 2011 before he was hired by Utah.
Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, who was unavailable for comment, hinted during Tuesday’s press conference in which Christensen was formally introduced there could be more movement with his coaches.
