SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Dennis Erickson will soon be a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. He is being inducted for his years spent with NCAA teams as a head coach.

As a head coach Erickson posted an impressive 179-96-1 record.

Erickson spent three years with the Utes under Kyle Whittingham. Erickson shared the offensive coordinator position with Utah favorite and alumni Brian Johnson. For the next two seasons, he moved on to the assistant head coach position before retiring.

He served as the running backs coach for all three seasons with Utah.

Erickson has an impressive coaching resume, spending time in both the NFL – with the Seahawks and 49ers – and in college football with the likes of Wyoming, Washington State and Arizona State, among others.

He is most well-known for his coaching stint at the University of Miami where he won two National Championships in 1989 and 1991.

At the end of his coaching career, Erickson returned to Utah to coach the failed AAF team – The Salt Lake Stallions – for the eight games the team played before the league folded.

Other 2019 inductees include Darren McFadden (Arkansas), Jake Plummer (Arizona State) and Troy Polamalu (Southern California). The only other coach on the list is Joe Taylor former Florida A&M coach.
