Crowton has also served as offensive coordinator at the University of Maryland, offensive coordinator at the University of Oregon, head coach at Brigham Young University, offensive coordinator for the NFL's Chicago Bears, head coach at Louisiana Tech, and offensive coordinator at Louisiana State University, which won a national championship in 2008. While at Oregon, Crowton was a 2005 finalist for the Broyles Award, given annually to the nation's top college football assistant coach. Crowton is most known for his aggressive offensive style, such as the "razzle dazzle" offensive scheme utilized in Chicago (as brought to the limelight by then Kansas City Chiefs head coach Gunther Cunningham). He was nicknamed "The Wizard" by the LSU players, after completing 39 games with an accomplishment of at least 30 points within 25 games and a 25–10 overall mark.
Crowton succeeded longtime coach LaVell Edwards as head coach of BYU in 2001. In his first season, he led the Cougars to a 12–2 record, their most wins since going 14–1 in 1996. However, the Cougars won only 14 more games in the next three years. By comparison, Edwards had suffered only two non-winning seasons in 29 years. He was forced to resign after the 2004 season.
Crowton graduated from Orem High School in 1975 and went on to earn a B.S. in physical education from Brigham Young University in 1983. He and his wife, Maren, have four daughters and three sons. Crowton made an appearance in the Mormon pop culture film The R.M..
