University of Utah passing game coordinator Aaron Roderick accepted a job as the wide recievers coach at BYU yesterday but has changed his mind as of today and will be staying at the U.
In an e-mail from the University of Utah Sports Information Director it was confirmed that Roderick accepted "an assistant coaching position at Brigham Young yesterday" but he has decided to "return as the receivers and passing game coordinator at the University of Utah"
Head Coach Kyle Whittingham was quoted in the e-mail as saying, “Aaron decided his heart was at Utah and with our football program and asked me for the opportunity to return. Aaron has been a valuable member of our coaching staff for the past eight years and is an excellent coach and recruiter. We are pleased he chose to stay with us.”
Also quoted in the e-mail was Roderick. “The response from my players, our coaches and the fans left me overwhelmed and I realized how much I loved it here and didn’t want to leave,” said Roderick. “I believe in Coach Whittingham and this program and I want to continue to be a part of it.”
