Utah Coaching Staff
Utes in the NFL
Univ. of Utah
Kyle Whittingham, the 2008 National Coach of the Year, has participated in more Utah victories than any football coach in school history. As an assistant and head coach, Whittingham has participated in 170 victories in his 20 years at Utah. Eighty-five of those (85-43) have come in 10 years as the head coach.
Whittingham has been almost unbeatable in bowl games and is tied with John Robinson (USC/UNLV) for the best bowl winning percentage of any coach in NCAA history with a .889 mark. The two have identical 8-1 bowl records and the NCAA minimum is seven wins.
Whittingham is the only person who was involved in all of Utah's nine-consecutive bowl wins from 1999-2009, which tied the second-longest bowl win streak in NCAA history. He was the head coach for six of those wins and the defensive coordinator for the first three.
