Utah QB Jordan Wynn’s playing career came to an end in September after a season-ending injury to his shoulder in a loss to Utah State, his fourth major injury in college. Now, just over two months later, his college coaching career is already starting.
On Thursday, the 22-year-old Wynn was named the quarterbacks coach at Hawaii — where his old offensive coordinator, Norm Chow, is the head coach — starting in January.
“The time we were together, I enjoyed it immensely,” Chow told the Salt Lake Tribune. “He is going to take our quarterbacks and be our quarterbacks coach, and I’m really excited.”
It won’t be a figurehead position for Wynn, who graduated in May with an economics degree. He’s expected to help the Warriors rebound from a subpar (1–8) season and give new life to a once prolific offense now averaging under 20 points/game (19.6).
We wish Wynn the best. After the hard-luck playing career he endured, he certainly deserves it.
