In an interview this week with renowned coach Dennis Erickson – now a co-offensive coordinator at Utah – I asked whether there is anything he now knows about the football program that he didn’t when he took the job last winter.
Erickson is a good person to ask about Utah’s place in the Pac-12. He was head coach at Arizona State, Washington State and Oregon State.
His response: “Yeah, the potential. There’s a tremendous upside, with the community, with the new facility we have now, the fans are great, this university. It’s going to take a little time, but this university is going to be a perfect fit in the Pac-12 and it’s going to have a lot of success, on the field and on the courts. But it will take a little time.”
