Blog – MSU QB coach praises Prescott, happy to be in Starkville

New Mississippi State quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson addressed the media for the first time on Thursday.

The former Utah offensive coordinator is happy to be a part of the staff Dan Mullen has put together.

Mullen recruited Johnson to Utah and coached for a year before moving on to Florida.

Johnson spoke highly of the three quarterbacks he has met so far in Dak Prescott, Damian Williams and Nick Fitzgerald.

He said Prescott “was as strong as an ox” and reminded him of an action figure.

Johnson spent the 2010-11 season as the quarterbacks coach at Utah. He was the offensive coordinator in 2012 and the co-offensive coordinator in 2013.
