Arizona promotes from within to fill coordinator voids
By ESPN.com staff
Mike Stoops now has four coordinators at Arizona, but only one wasn't on staff in 2009.
Stoops promoted offensive line coach Bill Bedenbaugh and tight ends/running backs coach Seth Littrell to fill the void left when offensive coordinator Sonny Dykes took over at Louisiana Tech, the Arizona Daily Star reported.
Stoops did hire a quarterbacks coach from outside the program: former Louisiana Tech offensive coordinator Frank Scelfo. Dykes coached quarterbacks last year.
Stoops told the Star he hasn't decided who will call plays.
Stoops previously hired Greg Brown away from Colorado and paired him with linebackers coach Tim Kish as co-coordinators on defense.
