PROVO — Aaron Roderick, who has spent the past eight seasons at Utah, is the latest coach to join BYU's staff, coach Bronco Mendenhall announced Wednesday.
Roderick played receiver for the Cougars from 1997-98.
"Aaron has excellent coaching experience and is a man of character and faith," Mendenhall said. "He is a great recruiter, outstanding position coach, fantastic teacher, master strategist and tireless worker. It's great to have Aaron back at BYU."
Roderick returns to his alma mater with 14 years of coaching experience. He's been at Utah since 2005.
"I'm looking forward to the chance to work at BYU and return to my alma mater," Roderick said. "I'm excited for the opportunity to work with (offensive coordinator) Robert Anae, who I played for when I was at Ricks College. I've always had great respect for Robert."
Mendenhall announced the hiring of Mark Atuaia and Garett Tujague on Tuesday. According to a BYU release, position assignments will be announced once the entire coaching staff is finalized.
