Strong names Mike Sanford new offensive coordinator

Charlie Strong will introduce Mike Sanford as the new Louisville offensive coordinator later today. Tom Dienhart of Yahoo! was the first to report the story.

Sanford comes to U of L from UNLV, where he had been the head coach for the previous five seasons. The Runnin' Rebels produced a record of just 15-43 under his watch. The most notable moment of his tenure may have come when he refused to have his team leave the field following a loss to Iowa State in 2006.

Prior to his stint in Vegas, Sanford had served as Urban Meyer's offensive coordinator at Utah. In his final season in Salt Lake, the Utes averaged 43.5 points per game on their way to an undefeated season capped by a Fiesta Bowl victory over Pittsburgh.

Sanford is best known for his innovative spread offense.

Welcome to The Ville, coach.
