Stubblefield takes Utah job as wide receivers coach
Less than a week after joining Eastern Michigan University as the wide receivers coach, Taylor Stubblefield will be heading to the University of Utah.
Confirming reports that surfaced Tuesday, Stubblefield has accepted the same position at Utah.
Stubblefield spent last season at Wake Forest University before joining the EMU staff and will replace Aaron Roderick, who has been shifted over to quarterbacks coach.
This will be Stubblefield’s eight different coaching job in as many years.
In 2007, Stubblefield began his coaching career at Central Washington University. The next year he served as a graduate assistant at EMU before stints at Illinois State University (2009-10), Central Michigan University (2011) The University of New Mexico (2012) and Wake Forest (2013)— all as wide receivers coach.
The move now leads the wide receiver and tight end coaching positions vacant for the Eagles.
As stated in a previous story last week, EMU head coach Chris Creighton expects the tight end position to be filled by weeks’ end.
