Co-Offensive Coordinator, Run Game /Offensive Line
Fifth Season At SUU
Teag Whiting is in his fifth season as a member of the Thunderbird staff, his fourth in a full-time capacity. After serving as a graduate assistant with the Thunderbird offensive line in 2009, Coach Whiting took over as O-line coach in the spring of 2010.
Whiting's four years as SUU's offensive line coach have been four of the Thunderbirds' best passing seasons in the school's history.
In 2009, in his first season with the team and in the coaching ranks, Whiting worked with an offensive line that boasted a pair of first-team all-Great West Conference selections, tackles Levi Mack and Aarron Po'uha, as well as a second-teamer, center Stephen Boyer. SUU's offense was prolific in Whiting's first season with the team, as the Thunderbirds ranked among the nation's leaders in passing yardage, total offense and scoring.
In 2010, the Thunderbird offense passed for a school-record 3,257 yards, the fifth-best mark in the nation, and the Thunderbirds finished 10th in the nation in total yards behind Coach Whiting's offensive line. SUU had three linemen named the the All-Great West Conference team, first-teamer Trevor Schauerhamer and second-team selections Gavin Farr and Brandon Beddes, while a fourth, Brock Christensen, earned honorable mention. Farr was named Most Valuable Lineman on the media team, with Zach Brackus earning first-team honors while Schauerhamer and Beddes were honorable mention picks in 2010.
In 2011, the team was just short of the 2010 passing total, finishing with 3,161 yards through the air, which ranked 12th in the FCS. Brackus earned first-team all-GWC honors from the coaches while Farr was a second-team selection despite missing several games because of injury. On the media team both Brackus and Farr earned first-team recognition and Beddes earned a second-team nod.
The 2012, the squad was again high-powered as the Thunderbirds averaged 371 yards per game, including 285 through the air. SUU passed the 3,000-yard passing mark for the fourth straight season, finishing with 3,139 yards through the air, and passed for 23 touchdowns, tying the second-highest mark in school history.
Coach Whiting was a two-year starter at Brigham Young University, where he earned honorable mention all-Mountain West Conference honors as an offensive lineman before going on to spend two seasons in the NFL, primarily with the Arizona Cardinals. Prior to his time at BYU, Coach Whiting was an all-region, all-conference and all-America performer at BYU-Idaho (then Ricks College).
A native of Salt Lake City, Utah, Coach Whiting prepped at Salt Lake City's Brighton High School, where he was a two-time all-region and all-state performer in football as well as a state champion wrestler.
Coach Whiting and his wife Ashley are the parents of two sons, Dallas and Greson.
