Noel Mazzone has called an audible on Texas.
According to multiple reports, Mazzone will be the new offensive coordinator at Arizona. The Austin American-Statesman and other media outlets reported last week that Mazzone was set to join Texas as a quality control coach.
I was told If this happens, Noel Mazzone will likely join Sumlin in Arizona as an assistant coach and turn down Texas’ offer to be a quality control assistant. No brainer at that point. https://t.co/vXHaGwVrJYAdvertisement

Arizona hired Kevin Sumlin to lead its football program on Sunday. Mazzone worked under Sumlin at Texas A&M for the past two seasons.
Arizona will be the eighth program to have its offensive coordinated by Mazzone since 1995. Texas A&M averaged 32.7 points per game in 2017.
