Biography

Guy Holliday, a 23-year veteran of college coaching who has sent 21 players to the NFL ranks, was hired to coach Utah’s wide receivers in January. Holliday’s experience includes 18 years as a wide receivers coach and six as an offensive coordinator.
     
Holliday came to Utah after three seasons at Brigham Young, where he coached the receivers from 2013-15. His other FBS stops were Western Michigan (2000-02), Mississippi State (2003-06) and UTEP (2008-12). He also coached at Clark-Atlanta (1991), Tuskegee (1992-94), Alabama State (1995 and 1998-99) and Cornell (2007).
           
Holliday joined the Utes after assisting with BYU’s No. 21-ranked passing offense in 2015 (296.5 yards per game) and No. 26 passing game in 2014 (278.7 yards per game). He coached Cody Hoffman, the leading receiver in BYU history.
           
In 2008, Holliday worked with the nation’s No. 14-ranked passing offense at UTEP and the Miners ranked 20th in passing offense in 2009. Earlier in his career, he helped Western Michigan win the 2000 Mid-American Conference Western Division title. As the offensive coordinator at Alabama State in 1995 and from 1998-99, the Hornets were one of the Southwestern Athletic Conference’s top passing teams. Holliday was also the offensive coordinator at Tuskegee, which ranked in the top 10 in passing offense all three years he was the offensive coordinator.
           
Twenty-one of Holliday’s wide receivers were drafted or made NFL active rosters: BYU’s Hoffman and Mitch Matthews; UTEP’s Jeff Moturi, Kris Adams, Donavon Kemp and Jordan Leslie (who also played one season for Holliday at BYU); Mississippi State’s Justin Jenkins, Lance Long and Brandon McRae; Western Michigan’s Kendrick Mosley, Corey Alston, Greg Jennings and Tony Scheffler; Alabama State’s J.J. Huggins, Reggie Barlow and Damon Hodge; Clark-Atlanta’s Chuck Evans and Millard Hamilton; Tuskegee’s Chris Holder and Anthony Mitchell; and Cornell’s Bryan Walters.
           
Holliday has also coached four all-conference players at previous FBS stops: Mississippi State’s Jenkins, Western Michigan’s Mobolaji Afariogun (at tight end) and Steve Neal and UTEP’s Moturi.
