Utah State finally pulled the trigger on a long-awaited hire at defensive coordinator. And in Todd Orlando, the Aggies can see some past accomplishments that they want to make their future.
On Orlando's coaching resume in the last two decades, his experience as Connecticut's defensive coordinator stands out in particular. He went to the Fiesta Bowl, a BCS-level stage that Utah State hopes it can be in the hunt for in the next few years.
Coach Matt Wells said many times that he was looking for the right fit at the position, someone who would blend in with the culture in Logan while also bringing some heavyweight experience to the table. It would appear nearly two months waiting for a hire paid off big for Wells and company.
