Former USC quarterback Brad Aoki will begin his coaching career at Colorado State in 2023.

He announced that news on Sunday evening in a message where he thanked USC for its support during his tenure with the Trojans. He was a walk-on quarterback at USC from 2019-22.

“Although I have put on the pads for the last time and thrown my last ball, I now look to pass what I have learned as I transition into a career coaching and serving others through the very game that has brought so much to my life,” he wrote in-part. “Though my time here at USC has come to an end, this moment also marks the start of something special.”

Shortly after Aoki shared that message on Twitter, Colorado State wide receivers coach Chad Savage welcomed him to the Rams’ program:

Aoki will begin his coaching career as an assistant receivers coach. He originally began his collegiate career as a wide receiver at USC. He moved to quarterback in 2020.
