Bingham leading tight end reintroduction for Griz


MISSOULA — Even though he grew up in the Garden City, Colin Bingham is finally back home.

The Missoula native was a Class AA first-team All-State selection as a senior tight end at Big Sky High in 2014. But the son of Griz Hall of Fame offensive lineman Guy Bingham spent his first three years at Montana playing inside receiver in Bob Stitt’s pass-heavy spread offense.

Now Bingham is back to playing tight end. The fourth-year junior “has gained probably 20 to 25 pounds since the end of the season and he looks the part,” according to new Montana head coach Bobby Hauck. It remains to be seen how offensive coordinator Timm Rosenbach uses the reinstituted position in his offense. But the 6-foot-3, 250-pounder in enjoying being back at the spot he feels most comfortable in.
