TUCSON, Arizona — Arizona Football completed its offensive coaching staff by hiring four assistants on Monday.

Jimme Dougherty, who worked with head coach Jedd Fisch at three different locations, arrives from UCLA to be the quarterbacks coach. The Bruins led the Pac-12 in total offense last year.

Scottie Graham will be the running backs coach. Graham was most recently an associate athletic director at Arizona State.

Jordan Paopao will be the tight ends coach. Paopao held that position at UNLV, and spent a decade on the Washington Huskies staff.

Kevin Cummings will be the wide receivers coach after holding the same role at UNLV.

The offensive assistants will work under previously hired offensive coordinator Brennan Carrooll. UArizona is still searching for a defensive coordinator.
