Utah DT Coach Sione Po’uha Announces Retirement From Coaching
SALT LAKE CITY – University of Utah defensive tackles coach Sione Po’uha announced his retirement from coaching on Tuesday after three seasons with the Utes.
Sione Po’uha was an All-Mountain West selection for Utah and was a part of the Fiesta Bowl team in 2004. He went on to play eight seasons in the NFL with the New York Jets.
“Sione has been an amazing teacher, mentor and coach, and we are grateful to him for everything he has given to this university,” defensive coordinator Morgan Scalley said. “I am personally grateful for the example he has been to me. He is a friend and a brother, and I wish him nothing but the best.”
Po’uha joined the Utah coach staff in 2018 and has developed great defensive linemen during his stint on The Hill. He was a big part of the development of Leki Fotu, John Penisini and others, including Junior Tafuna this season.
Before joining the Utah staff, Po’uha coached the defensive tackles at Navy in 2018.
