(UPDATED) According to Guy Holliday’s Son the Utes WR Coach Has Been Let Go
UPDATE: This article has been updated with an acknowledgement from Guy Holliday that he is no longer with the University of Utah.
According to Utah wide receivers coach Guy Holliday’s son, the University of Utah is now in the market for a new receivers coach. Ute Nation has chose to not acknowledge those tweets, as he has tweeted and removed them multiple times.
The tweets from his son come as a surprise as it’s the polar opposite of how Guy Holliday conducts his business. Yet, family will always have their family’s backs. Something Justin is doing with no reservations.
During Holliday’s five seasons at Utah, only Tim Patrick has gone on to success in the NFL, while Darren Carrington was Second-Team All-Pac-12. The recent defections of Bryan Thompson and Samson Nacua have not helped matters. However, it is debatable on whether the lack of success should be pegged on Holliday or the Utah offense. In 2020 the receivers were depleted throughout the season by injuries and Jake Bentley struggled to get them the ball.
Since this news broke, Justin Holliday took to Twitter again on Monday, which he once again deleted his tweets, likely due to his father’s urging. Guy Holliday chimed in shortly after, acknowledging that the Utes have chosen to go in a different direction.
Guy is class through and through. Good luck to him, wherever he lands next.
