Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona coach Mike Stoops has hired Frank Scelfo to coach quarterbacks and promoted assistants Bill Bedenbaugh and Seth Littrell to co-offensive coordinators.

The 51-year-old Scelfo comes to Tucson from Louisiana Tech, where he has been offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the past three years.

Bedenbaugh joined the Wildcats staff in 2007 as offensive line coach and running game coordinator, and Littrell spent last season coaching running backs and tight ends. They replace Sonny Dykes, who left to take the head coaching job at Louisiana Tech.
