SALT LAKE CITY – Utah hired former Wyoming coach Dave Christensen as offensive coordinator and demoted Dennis Erickson to running backs coach.

Erickson and Brian Johnson were co-offensive coordinators last season, but the Utes ranked 76th in the country in total offense (397 yards per game).

Johnson will continue to be quarterbacks coach. The 66-year-old Erickson, who has been head coach at Washington State, Miami, Oregon State and Arizona State, worked with the running backs last season.
