Gary Pinkel 'excited' for Mizzou staff changes

Douglas Jones-US PRESSWIRE

Josh Henson and Andy Hill were promoted to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, respectively.

The Missouri Tigers announced a pair of coaching promotions on Thursday for the football team, bumping Josh Henson and Andy Hill to offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, respectively. Head coach Gary Pinkel discussed what the hires mean to the team with the official team website, saying that he is "excited" for the changes:

"I'm excited for both Josh and Andy, and for our team," said Pinkel. "They are both deserving of these opportunities and I'm confident that they are going to do great things to move our program forward."

Henson arrived to the team in 2009 as the co-offensive line coach after leaving the LSU Tigers. He takes over for David Yost, who resigned from the position on Monday. Hill joined the team for the 1996 season as a wide receivers coach, but will switch to coaching quarterbacks after 17 seasons at the position.

The Tigers finished 5-7 overall in their first season in the SEC and ranked No. 83 in the nation in points scored per game. Despite high expectations, quarterback James Franklin threw just 10 touchdowns during his junior season.
