It's likely we will be seeing the triple option every year now.

Navy's Ken Niumatalolo has been offered Arizona Wildcats coaching job

Niumatalolo, a disciple of former UA coach Dick Tomey, is the favorite following the final round of interviews. Niumatalolo has been offered the job, a source close to the situation told the Star.

A native of Hawaii, Niumatalolo has been the head coach at Navy for the past 10 years. The Midshipmen have gone 84-47 during that span, qualifying for a bowl game in all but one season.

In the MWC, Whittingham said Utah would spend a week during fall camp teaching how to defend the triple option. It looks like we may be doing that again.

NarfUte icon NEW: This is going to sound elitist, because the MWAC is our roots but I don't think the triple option can thrive in a P5 conference. There's too much team speed (short)

UteFanatic icon NEW: Ken's a good coach. The fact that his preferred offense is the triple option is irrelevant, IMO.

EUte icon NEW: Yep. At the service academies triple option arguably gives you the best chance to win.

Big Wave icon NEW: I would trade the Ute $#!+ show offense for what Navy runs all day! (nm)

Puget Ute icon NEW: I would love to watch the Ute $#!+ show offense play against the defenses on Navy's schedule. Only Notes Dame (and Houston) had much of a pulse on defense and both shut down the Middies.
