Yesterday there were reports flowing out that Utah Utes running back coach Dave Schramm has been hired by Fresno State to be their offensive coordinator. So far the web site CoachingSearch.com has reported that Schramm has been hired, and Football Scoop has reported that Schramm has been offered the job but has not gone on to say he has taken the job. Those are the only two sources at the moment about this move. Those two sites are right more often than not, but there should still be some skepticism about these reports.
Schramm has been at Utah since 2005 and was the co-offensive coordinator in 2009 and 2010 for Utah. This past year he was back coaching the running backs since Utah brought in Norm Chow to be their offensive coordinator. If Schramm is on the move it is because he was not going to become the offensive coordinator at Utah, so he took a better position with Fresno State.
Schramm has coached some good running backs in his time at Utah with Matt Asiata, Eddie Wide, Darrell Mack, John White IV, all who have surpassed 1,000 yards per year.
UPDATE: According to Bill Reilly, who does the play-by-play for Utah football, spoke with Schramm after Utah's Sun Bowl win and will be taking the offensive coordinator position at Fresno State.
