Sacramento State hires offensive coordinator

Sacramento State football coach Marshall Sperbeck has turned the play calling over to new offensive coordinator Paul Peterson.

Sperbeck previously handled the offensive play calling since being hired in 2007.

Peterson arrives at Sacramento State from Southern Utah, where over the past four years he coached the Thunderbirds' quarterbacks and wide receivers and was the team's passing game coordinator.

The one-time Boston College quarterback coached three of the most decorated signal-callers in Southern Utah history, Cody Stone in 2008, Cade Cooper in 2009 and Brad Sorensen the past two years.

Southern Utah will move into the Big Sky Conference alongside Sacramento State next season.
