Fourth-year Ute offensive line coach Charlie Dickey helped Utah win a game before his first season even began. Dickey, hired while the 2004 Utes were readying for the (2005) Fiesta Bowl, called defensive alignments down from the booth during Utah's historic BCS win.

After the bowl game, he took charge of Utah's offensive line and his position has been regarded as a Ute stronghold since. In 2006, the Utes were the last team in the country to allow a sack - going six games before anyone got to their quarterback.

During his time at Utah, Dickey has coached two first-team all-conference players in center Jesse Boone (2005) and tackle Tavo Tupola (2006). Last year, tackle Zane Beadles and guard Robert Conley won second team honors.

Dickey coached in the Pac-10 for 13 years before coming to Utah, spending 12 years at his alma mater, Arizona, and one season at Washington. At Arizona, he coached the offensive line from 1992-2002 and the tight ends in 2003. In 2004, Dickey went to Washington as the Huskies' offensive line coach.

While at Arizona, Dickey developed first-team all-conference linemen Warner Smith (1994) and Yusuf Scott (1998). Scott won the 1998 Morris Trophy award, which goes to the league's outstanding offensive lineman.

Dickey began his coaching career after playing one season for the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 1987 NFL strike. In 1988, he worked at Arizona as a graduate assistant coach. He coached the offensive line at Scottsdale Community College in 1989 and at Northern Arizona from 1990-91.
