“Chad Bumphis is an excellent addition to our coaching staff,” Whittingham said. “We’re very familiar with Chad from his year with us in 2018, and we’re elated to be able to bring him back to Utah. A very successful wide receiver in his own right, he has an impressive ability to teach and to motivate his players and we look forward to having him join our staff.”
Bumphis was hired as the WR coach at Austin Peay in 2019. In 2021 he accepted the same position at Central Michigan before the opportunity at Utah arose.
“Nataly and I are very excited and extremely blessed to be back here at the University of Utah,” Bumphis said. “After spending 2018 here as a graduate assistant, it didn’t take me long to know I eventually wanted to be back here as the wide receivers coach. It just feels like home.
Bumphis played college football at Mississippi State where he was the team’s leading receiver for three of his four seasons. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in communication.
