Whittingham Faces Multiple Challenges This Season
(KUTV) The Utes (1-2) host the USC Trojans Thursday night, but that's not the biggest challenge facing Kyle Whittingham and his banged up Utes. No, Utah has to find a way to make adjustments on the fly, much like it did last season but with different components, both on the playing field and in the coaching booth.
Coming off a crushing 30-point loss at Arizona State and the prospects of facing a PAC-12 schedule with injury problems and a struggling offensive line is only part of the challenge.
Whittingham says he's disappointed with the play of the offensive line so far, and then followed that up by saying "when all is said and done, nobody cares--we've got to get a product on the field that is competitive."
With a youthful coaching staff and road games against UCLA, Washington and Oregon State coming up, Whittingham is facing one of his toughest coaching challenges ever.
