Weber State now thinks of itself as a perennial playoff team in the FCS; no one’s arguing with the Wildcats

Ogden • Entering his sixth season as Weber State’s football coach, Jay Hill is starting to sense what one of his old bosses experienced at Ohio State.

Hill’s being able to relate to former Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer is a good illustration of how far the Wildcats have come since 2014, when they lost the first nine games of Hill’s head coaching career. Formerly a longtime assistant coach and support staff member at Utah, where he worked for Meyer and Kyle Whittingham, Hill has built a program that expects to be a perennial FCS playoff contestant.
