Although Arizona has not yet officially announced it, it appears the Wildcats have found their new wide receivers coach.
UTEP receivers coach Theron Aych has long been rumored to be the top candidate and on late Thursday night, he changed his Twitter profile to reflect the move to Arizona.
Aych was on campus earlier this week and watched a practice before meeting with Rich Rodriguez to discuss the job.
He only spent one year at UTEP before accepting the Arizona job. Previously, Aych spent five seasons at Angelo State as the offensive coordinator and assistant head coach.
Under Aych, the 2015 Rams’ offense led the nation (Division II) in total offense with over 560 yards per game and ranked seventh in points per game.
Aych was also a 2015 finalist for American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Assistant Coach of the Year.
In addition, Aych coached at NCAA Division II Central Missouri from 2005-08 after previously serving as an assistant at the University of Washington for two seasons (2003-04) and the University of Houston for three seasons (2000-02).
Aych also coached at the junior college level – Fort Scott (Kan.) Community College and Mesabi Range (Minn.) Community College – and at the high school level at Aberdeen (S.D.) Central.
