Mississippi St hires Johnson as QB coach
Question of the Day
STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State has hired Utah assistant Brian Johnson to be its quarterbacks coach.
The 26-year-old Johnson has a long relationship with Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen, who used to be an assistant coach at Utah. Mullen recruited Johnson to play quarterback at Utah in 2004 and Johnson went on to become a successful three-year starter.
Johnson had several titles during his four-year coaching tenure at Utah, including offensive coordinator and co-offensive coordinator, but he was demoted to quarterbacks coach in December after a disappointing season.
Johnson replaces offensive coordinator Les Koenning, who took a job at Texas.
Mississippi State has also restructured its offensive coaching staff. Billy Gonzalez and John Hevesy are now the co-offensive coordinators, and Greg Knox will be in charge of special teams and running backs.
