University of Minnesota Names Horton Offensive Coordinator

Posted by Chrissie Wywrot on January 23, 2010 – 9:08 pm

Detroit Lions Quarterbacks Coach Jeff Horton has left the team to become the offensive coordinator at the University of Minnesota.
“Jeff did a great job for us and while we are sorry to see him leave, we certainly understand what a tremendous opportunity this is for him,” said Head Coach Jim Schwartz in a statement. “We wish Jeff and his family the very best.”
Horton’s most recent job in the college ranks was also in the Big Ten as the quarterbacks coach for the University of Wisconsin (1999-2005). He moved to the NFL in 2006 with the St. Louis Rams (2006-08) before moving on to Detroit to join Offensive Coordinator Scott Linehan.

    Is management going to replace the QB coach or let Linehan work that job as well? Put it this way the Colts have a QB coach, and I don’t mean Manning. How can you not have a specific coach for a QB that has NOT even played a full year?
