On Monday, the Arizona Wildcats football program announced the following hires:
- Jimmie Dougherty – Passing game coordinator & quarterbacks coach
- Scottie Graham – Runnings backs coach
- Kevin Cummings – Wide receivers coach
- Jordan Paopao – Tight ends coach
It’s an important step for new head coach Jedd Fisch as this group joins a staff that already includes Chuck Cecil, Ricky Hunley and Brennan Carroll.
Some were quick to question the hire of Fisch, who only has two games of head coaching experience. For the Pac-12 Network’s Yogi Roth, he is confident in the staff Fisch could put together and can use the lessons and mentorship he received from the likes of Bill Belichick, Pete Carroll and Steve Spurrier.
Roth breaks down the hire, what Arizona fans can expect from Fisch and his staff and why patience might pay off with this hire.
