Report: Mike Sanford Jr. will not return next season as offensive coordinator

Football Scoop is reporting that Minnesota Golden Gophers head coach P.J. Fleck will not retain offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Sanford Jr. for next season.

Minnesota is going in a different direction at offensive coordinator, sources tell @FootballScoop. Mike Sanford will not return after two seasons on the job.

Sanford was hired from Utah State prior to the 2020 season after previous offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Kirk Ciarrocca took the same position at Penn State.
