SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah running back Zack Moss and head coach Kyle Whittingham earned All-Pac-12 honors.
Moss is the Pac-12 offensive player of the year while Whittingham earned the coach of the year award.
Defensive player of the year was awarded to California linebacker Evan Weaver.
Moss led the Pac-12 in rushing yards with 1,359. He also broke the school record for all-time rushing leader which was previously held by Eddie Johnson.
This offensive player of the year award is a first for the Utes.
Whittingham led the Utes to an 11-2 record this season. Before losing the Pac-12 title game, his team was in the conversation for a possible College Football Playoff berth.
This is the first time Whittingham has been the Pac-12 coach of the year.
