Arizona is set to hire Jedd Fisch as their new head coach sources tell FootballScoop.
Adam Schefter first reported the hire this morning.
Fisch, who has previous experience in the PAC-12 as the offensive coordinator at UCLA in 2017, spent this past season as the quarterbacks coach for the New England Patriots.
He has also served in coordinator roles at Michigan, and Minnesota and also in the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars and with the Rams as an assistant offensive coordinator in 2019 and the season before he was Sean McVay’s go-to guy for game management decisions.
This marks his first head coaching opportunity, but Fisch did serve as the interim head coach at UCLA in 2017 following the departure of Jim Mora. He went 1-1 leading the Bruins.
With this job being filled, and ULM closing in on their next leader with an official announcement expected today, there is just one job left open in major college football – Boise State (which came open yesterday with Bryan Harsin leaving for Auburn).
