The deal to hire Houston offensive line coach Brandon Jones but Lincoln Riley hired Texas A&M offensive line coach John Henson on Sunday.
I’m told Henson will make close to the $900,000+ being paid to USC assistant coach Donte Williams so a big play was made to get him to Los Angeles.
Henson was also an offensive line coach at Oklahoma State and LSU.
One funny note is Henson was hired in 2017 as offensive line coach at Arizona State but left after a month to return to his alma mater, Oklahoma State. Imagine the fanboys tonight if Riley had a hired an ASU offensive line coach. Not quite the same reaction.
