It is sad to see guys lose their jobs and of course none of us really knows how
good they were at those jobs. But we do know the offense was very average the
last couple of years and of course once the decision was made to re-hire Anae
the right thing to do is to let Anae put together the offensive staff he wants.
I feel badly for those that have lost their jobs but if it results
in a better offense then I will have no complaints, that is simply the way
things work in major college football. Just improve the offense and win
games.I do know Steve Clark and I would love to see him get an
opportunity to come to BYU and coach. I guess we'll see how it all falls
Wow. I thought Cahoon would stay. That guy is precision. As far as QB coach,
I'd take the SUU guy. They're tearing it up down there. Enough from
the arm chair, I'm out.
Remember how Heaps, Doman, and Cahoon were supposed to create an offensive
Interesting moves. I liked DuPaix and Cahoon. I thought the position players
under them progressed well under their tutelage. But I also know that Anae needs
his people to form a strong, cohesive offensive staff. Here's hoping that
the offensive headaches of the last 2 years are behind us. I like the
possibility of Hall as the QB coach. I don't see Doman going from OC back
to QB Coach. With him being a bishop, the school/athletic dept can give him
another role w/ the school that will allow more time for his calling in the
church. Let's go, Cougs!
Y seems to have a strange system of accountability. We still do not know who was
responsible for last year's quarterback and offense fiasco decisions. But
I'm pretty sure Cahoon was a bright spot on the offense staff.
Heaps is good, but please put a gag order on him with the press. We don't
need any "classless" fiascos.
Max Hall is good, but if hired, please put a gag order on him. We don't
need any "classless" fiascos.
Glad Atuaia will get the RB Coach gig, he should have got it before Dupaix, but
that's the Coaching Job business "It's all abou Who U know!"
As for QB Coach, i hope they go with Paul Peterson, he's got a great Track
record, I think he even helped Matty Ice while he was at Boston College.
Definately don't want Max Hall, he'll go against byu standards of
"Love thy Neighbor"..... Hater....... GO UTESSSSSSS!!!
I am actually shocked by Roscoe letting Cahoon go. I dont see you getting
someone better than him. They both seemed like decent recruiters
"Remember how Heaps, Doman, and Cahoon were supposed to create an offensive
juggernaut?"Chris B - I remember that utah
didn't go to a bowl game this year.
I'm not surprised that Joe DuPaix is leaving. Letting Ben Cahoon go
doesn't make as much sense though. I'm not sure how much of this is
about competence and how much is about chemistry. One problem with
this whole process is that BYU will probably lose one valuable asset in the long
run. Talented Assistant Coaches have been very loyal to the school and that has
provided stability. If you clean house every other year, why should anybody be
loyal to you anymore? In the end you may be worse off.
Bronco decided to stay with Riley no matter what the cost...The only
people paying for that decision are Joe, Ben and maybe Brandon...Interesting.
I don't know why Holmoe and Mendenhall decided to give Anae another shot at
the same position everyone complained about the first time around.Furthermore, I
have no idea why Cahoon and DuPaix were let go. It seemed like the wide
receivers and running backs were the only positions on offense that showed any
promise last season. It seemed like the problems revolved around an
inexperienced offensive coordinator and a defensive minded head coach who made
poor decisions in the area of quarterback, and an offensive line that suffered a
number of injuries early on. We'll never know though the behind the scenes
politics. It just feels like bringing back a former offensive coordinator,
demoting the old OC to just quarterback coach, and bringing in inexperienced
running back and wide receiver coaches seems a bit odd with the first two
decisions seeming a bit retreadish.
@Tom in CAI remember that BYU played the 3rd-easiest schedule in
college football this year. I have to hand it to Bronco: If your goal is to get
bowl eligible, that's the way to do it.
These changes seem reactionary, as though the BYU football program was miles
away from BCS success instead of inches. Both these young position coaches
seemed very capable to this outsider/fan, and the learning curve for new
position coaches could taken even longer before the offense improves. Hope
Bronco and Anae know what they're doing. And I hope AD Holmoe is keeping
his nose out of the tent.
But wait, with all of those CFL receiving yards Cahoon was supposed to help
create an offense that was like "the good old days". Guess that
Doman needs to get out of Anae's kitchen. I won't be surprised to see
Doman elsewhere if Anae want's to succeed.Mendenhall need to
get need new DC. Tidwell would be ideal. Works better when HC is NOT OC or DC.
It demonstrates too much bias toward one side of the ball. Why side of the ball
was best? Case in point!
Interesting that BYU had the third easiest schedule, because according to the
Sagarin rankings, their SOS ranking was 63. Fairly certain that there are more
than 66 teams in college football. But then again, I could be wrong.
re: Brave? Sir RobinBYU's schedule was ranked 63rd (compared to
utah's 41st ranked schedule) out of 124 D-1 schools. Where did you come up
with 3rd worst or is that just an example of ute math ?
I can't believe they got rid of DuPaix. It really makes no sense unless he
and Bronco had conflicting coaching philosophies, in which case why did Bronco
hire him in the first place. Joe is a class act and a stand up guy he'll
find a home somewhere he is truly appreciated. I bet Cal Poly or Navy either one
would love to have him back.Good luck Joe!
Ty Detmer for QB coach. Make the call to Texas. Get it done.....
re: ChrissyBYou're slipping. You're not the first to post
on this BYU article. Looks like you tried to make up for it with 2 posts in the
first 10 though.Btw, how is that offensive juggernaut coming along
for the utes ?
AltaHawkFan already responded to Brave Sir Robin's ridiculous SOS
assertion. I guess he can now "bravely run away".Letting
Cahoon go is a HUGE mistake, IMO. Running game disappointed me - good against
weak competition but weak against decent teams. Don't know how much of
that was O-line problems, which I hope Anae can address. But receivers improved
*markedly* under Cahoon! If Austin Collie is ready to quit the NFL and is
taking the WR job at BYU, OK. Otherwise, I can't think of anyone better
Serenity Now"These changes seem reactionary, as though the BYU
football program was miles away from BCS success instead of inches."You're right, these changes are reactionary.Because of
an inept offense, one of the best defenses in BYU history and a legitimate
chance of playing in a BCS bowl were wasted.Cahoon and DuPaix are
both great men and I'm sad to see them go, but I don't blame Anae for
wanting to assemble his own staff. Hopefully, bringing some new blood into the
program will help reinvigorate BYU's stagnant offense.
"Where did you come up with 3rd worst or is that just an example of Ute
math?"It's an example of Ute math and lack of deductive
still up in the air on Brandon Doman? I thought Ben Cahoon was doing fine but I
know nothing about football system in football. I sure like to know what Ben
going to do or is going back to Canada to play some more?
This arm chair QB doesn't have a clue what is going on in Provo but it
looks like a bigger shake-up than anticipated. I hope it all works out for the
Cougs. If it doesn't this time then I think next shake-up maybe should
involve a change at head coach. Just sayin.
Brave Sir Robin:preseason as well Utah 55 BYU 74 USU 113 All those pointed out
to you add up to...not 3rd worst. Do you just make up stats? SOS must not make
much of a difference because USU was the best team in Utah this year. Yes BYU
won, but anyone serious knows USU was the better team throughout the year,
especially when they beat the UTES!
Strength of schedule smack? Really? We though U were ready to challenge for
the Rose Bowl from day one. I guess not.
I'm nervous about 2013. I hope Anae has sharpened his skills at OC,
although I'm not understanding where he schooled for improvement over his
last opportunity at OC for BYU. I got so tired of all the predictable plays.
If BYU lined up a certain way, it was one play and another way was another play,
etc. 4 ways to line up and 4 plays total. The better the opponent, the more
predicatable BYU became and they got creamed by teams they should have beaten.
I was excited about Doman, but he became the master of the planned/failed QB
draw, 20-25 times a game. I hope we are moving forward but I reserve judgement.
We'll know about 4-5 games into the season.
Congratulations to Duckhunter and dustman for being able to post comments before
the lobotomy case from Salt Lake that shall remain nameless.
Chris B"Remember how Heaps, Doman, and Cahoon were supposed to
create an offensive juggernaut?"Sometimes even the best-laid
plans don't work out. That's why it's important to learn from
your mistakes and move on.After handing the reins of his offense to
a 25-yo with almost no coaching experience, and seeing the mess that he created
out of it, Whitless may be facing the same decision to revamp his offensive
coaching staff next year.
Not sure why they got rid of Cahoon. That guy is a superstart, CFL or not. Is
it possible that he's one of those athletes that is incredible on the field
but awful coaching that same sport?If it's not that, getting
rid of him makes ZERO sense.And, I doubt it's the
no-coaching-talent issue because Cody Hoffman, who was virtually unheard of
signing with BYU as a freshman has rapdily become a future NFL-caliber
Mr. DuPaix was the recruiting coordinator so when I read of his dismissal I
though, "Oh no, now who will champion those two star recruits that have no
other offers?" Then the answer was revealed to me. It was his boss that
said this year they were going to hold off on the number of early signees in
order to get more of the late, highly rated recruits committing late in the
process. And it was the boss who then reversed the new philosophy in recruiting
only to sign the usual number of early recruits by saying these recruits were
just too good to pass up. So, as long as the Y plays football, the two star
athelets have hope.
Cahoon leaving, just makes no sense. Their has got to be some personal
conflicts going on there. DuPaix, I don't enough about. Cahoon, still
re: CraigerSince you can't think of anyone better, maybe
it's good that you're not the person hiring for the position. Just
maybe Coach Anae can think of someone better.Good luck to both
coaches in finding new positions.
Great time to clean house. At least five(assuming domain goes) assistant
coaches gone. There will be minimum effect of the current recruits (look at
their profiles and see how few have any other option) and it provides a ready
made excuse for next years record.
Sorry for some of the Ute fans making up statistics to put down BYU. I still
think it's funny that BYU fans brag to Utah fans about stuff when they
haven't won in a while. This question is for BYU fans: Do you feel that
those people were the root of the problem? Or was it Bronco? Also, Do you feel
that Bronco was covering his butt, and/or that he should have been the one to
"So, as long as the Y plays football,..."The Y will continue

Reasonable UteI fully blame Bronco and Holmoe.... Cahoon
Increased the production of the WR's.Dupaix increased the production
of the RB's even with the worse O-line in the history of College
sports....So let me get this straight....BYU offense was
horrible,the man in charge (Doman) was the master of the Offensive
plan.Weber was the O-line coach which produced the worse oline in
historyso Bronco in his "infinite" wisdom get rid of the
best Coaches (Cahoon, Dupaix) Weber leaves on his accord, Reynolds
"Retires" and Doman Still has the chance to come back?Does
anyone else see the irony in this?

Who am I sir? A jealous Utah troll.I noticed that Whitless is
sticking with his 25-yo OC, obviously so the Utes will have a ready-made excuse
for another losing season.
It's OK guys, Bronco will be gone too after the cougs lose 8 games next
year. Look for the Williams kid to transfer now too. This is quite the debacle. Oh well.
Ben Cahoon is one one of the biggest studs in the program.Maybe he
was a threat to Mendenhall to become the next head coach?Better to
ax any future threat to the throne.
reasonableUTEReasonable question, laughable dig aside. I
personally think the decision to continue playing Riley after he was hurt was
the one decision that was inexplicable. I think the major problems with the
offense were rooted in the line play, and it appears that Anae may be a step in
the right direction for that. I think Joe and Ben are collateral
damage. Robert was told he could have they guys he wanted coaching offense; he
wants other guys. The rest is speculation. Shoot, this was
Very interesting...there has been no official announcement still. Also, a
legitimate source told me that Jason Beck, former BYU QB, was flown into Provo
Saturday and interviewed with Anae and Mendenhall for a spot on the staff. No
mention on that in this article. We can't be seriously considering Max Hall
for the QB job, can we? The guy has never coached and has never even put in his
time as a GA. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the guy hasn't even
graduated with his degree yet. Clark and Peterson, along with Beck, are way more
It seems pretty easy to read between the lines - if the Cougs are interviewing
for QB Coach, Doman must be gone also. Meaning it's a clean sweep on the
offensive side of the ball.Two months ago, BYU fans were calling for
big changes of the offensive side of the ball, after seeing our lethargic
offense. And now that big changes are happening, I'm reading all these
comments about not wanting DuPaix to go, and not wanting Cahoon to go, and not
wanting Doman to go. I'm sure they are good men, but in coaching it's
all about results - not effort, not being a good person, etc.Anae
has obviously negotiated for complete control of the offense. Bronco will focus
entirely on DC. And in reality we don't have a head coach. If
the Cougs have a good record the next year or two, I'm pretty sure
we'll see Anae as the HC in the near future.
Pile on Doman. It's the fad right now. Mock him, call him names if you
want. The dude was a Heisman contender, and played in the NFL. Most of you
probably never sniffed a High School locker room. Call him what you will,
but...you might want to call him a WINNER because of his own career.He probably was only 33% of the problem this year and he'll probably end
up being a very good coach in the future.BYU fan most of my life but
man we are an ignorant, name-calling bunch from time to time.Best of
luck Brandon. Stick with coaching....
Didn't Cahoon play with Anae. Please, not Max Hall. There has to be an
experianced QB coach out there somewhere.
@USAloverIt isn't about "piling on" Doman, it is about
the fact his offense the last 2 years was just not good enough. I supported him
on these boards from the time he was hired, I thought he could become a good
offensive coordinator, it did not happen. I even posted on here I thought he
should get one more year. But the truth is his results were not good.None of us knows all of the inner dealings in the program, we hear things,
many of us even know some people inside and know some things, but the truth is
none of us knows it all. The one thing I do know is that the offense was not
good under Doman, for whatever reasons. If it is still bad under
Anae then we can address that as it occurs, but if it improves, and I think it
will, then that is just the way things go. I know Doman is a BYU guy, I know he
badly wanted to succeed as BYU's coordinator. Unfortunately he did not.We'll see what the future brings for BYU and for Doman.
Vai Sikahema wrote a story for the Dnews when Bronco fired Anae. He called out
Bronco for firing dark skin coaches and replacing them with Caucasian coaches.
I stopped reading Vai's stories after that. Question is will Vai now write
a complimentary story for Bronco allowing for Anae to return and hire coaches of
color?We all know Bronco did not fire Robert Anae and Jamie Hill
because of race or color.
utahcountyute"This is quite the debacle."LOL!Only a jealous Utah fan would characterize a newly hired offensive
coordinator hiring his own staff as a "debacle".Can't
wait to see your spin when BJ's offense struggles again next season and
Kyle has to replace him to save his own job.btw, remind us again how
many OC's Kyle has had in the last 8 years, including the game of musical
OCs he's played with A Rod.
My problem with Doman is that I think he had bit off more than he could chew.
If he was going to be the offensive coordinator they should have hired a QB
coach. If he wanted to be the QB coach he should have declined the O.C. offer.
Aside from that he's a great guy. I still don't understand letting
Cahoon go, unless it was his loyalty for Doman that made it impossible to work
for Anae, but I can't really see that. All I know is that before he came
the receivers dropped as many or more passes than they caught, and after he got
there, you rarely saw them drop anything.
Chris B:Hows that inferiority complex workin for ya?
@mussingaroundBilly Green per Rival 2 star per 247 2 starHapolito Corporan per Rival 3 star per 247 3 starESPN had both
rated 3 star however Corporan had a point grad of 78 compared to 74 for
Green.(After the final signing I will give evidence of how Scout
undergrades U recruits (compared to the other three services - part of the
reason is because they were (are?) not allowed to watch U practices because they
did not adhere to team rules.)
This makes zero sense. Both DuPaix and Cahoon were good coaches and perfectly
qualified and capable of coaching up good players. I have a bad feeling about
this. I really hope Anae chooses coaches that are actually qualified to coach
well and not just because he wants to bring on the guys he wants. If
there's one thing Coach Anae was known for while he was here it wasn't
humility. I hope his pride isn't BYU football's downfall.The running backs and receivers were not what was wrong with the offense. BYU
went 8-5 because of the QB and offensive line problems. I had thought those had
been addressed. It sounds crazy but there is more to coaching than purely
X's and O's. Was this really Bronco's decision or was this
another 'administrative' decision?
About two months ago, Holmoe held a conference here at BYU for students to ask
questions. I pointed out his comment from the D-News about "chemistry"
issues within the coaching staff. He was very surprised somebody quoted the
newspapers and was slow to come up with an answer. Right then I knew I had him
cornered and that changes were coming in the off-season. Holmoe
tried worming his way out of quite a few questions that afternoon, but non
looked more desperate or pathetic than his answer to mine. I'm
glad Anae is back. Hope to see some fire power on offense now. For all the
naysayers on Anae I have this to say: Look at the offensive statistics from
when he was here. Consistent Top 25. We lost some big games yes, but we won a
bunch of them too. (PS: Anae can actually beat Utah).

for the one or two left in common!

Clark from SUU coached the only quarterback in the state who is headed to the
why no Cahoon? receivers catching more passes with him at the helm. this makes
no sense to my outside view. Wish we were playing TCU this year; it would be the
litmus test for Anae. Anae did well in 2005-07, but really struggled 2008-10.
Granted Heaps was QB in 2010. Hope for the best.
Doman must not be interested in the QB coach job; otherwise why would he not the
Who am I sir?And you're naive enough to believe that the
recruiting services always get it right and that many Utah recruits who are
rated three stars, should really be two stars, and many BYU recruits who are
rated two stars, should really be three stars?Only a fan who is
truly delusional would implicitly trust the recruiting services.What
you should really be asking yourself is "how will Utah ever compete with
USC, when the Trojans routinely recruit an entire recruiting class of 4- and
5-star recruits?" USC often has more 4- and 5-star recruits in ONE
recruiting class, than Utah gets in a decade.So pound your chest
about minor differences in BYU vs Utah recruiting, if it helps you sleep at
night, but just realize, you simply make yourself look ridiculous.---------------JohnInSLCFirst Two Years of

Whoever was in charge of play calling in the Boise game should be the one to go.
That and whoever decided to stick with Riley, run an option offense, and waste
the talents of top wide receivers. BYU had plenty of talent this past season,
the problem was they spent the whole year manipulating the offense to suit one
player- Riley Nelson.
Why not fire everyone at BYU? Better yet, why not fire BYU? At least, then,
maybe Yale will get its "Y" back.
I hate to see all of this but if you are going to hire a QB coach to work with
the offense, hire Steve Clark at SUU. Like somebody said before, the offense and
QB at SUU tore it up. Clark also worked with Mendenhall and Urban Meyer. He
knows his stuff...
One step forward, two steps back. This is like replacing the wheels,
transmission and alternator because the sparkplugs need changing...we don't
need to fix what isn't broken!
My bet is the offensive cord has total say over the offensive coaching staff.
It appears that Bronco's judgment was bad when he selected the four men who
are now gone largely because he played his friend Riley. Why would we think
that now his judgment is now suddely better?
Paul Peterson is an exceptional up-and-coming offensive mind in college
football. The article is incorrect in suggesting that he just completed another
year at SUU. In fact, he was the Offensive Coordinator at Sacramento State,
which had its best record in a couple decades largely behind Peterson's
explosive offense. We need more experienced guys like Peterson on the staff.
Give Max a chance to learn before you give him a staff whistle.
Gotta love Cougar "fan". First Bronco was a genius hiring Doman and all
Doman's buddies, getting Riley from USU and creating an environment where
Anae left. Now he's a genius for firing Doman and Doman's buddies and
hiring Anae back. Typical.
Very unprofessional by Bronco. The unwritten rule is that you let coaches go
before the national coaches convention because it is there that a ton of
programs fill spots! So, by waiting until the week after the convention, Bronco
violated that, and in turn cost these guys about 90% of the jobs that they could
have been going after. Total disrespect for guys who have worked hard for him.
Bronco will leave BYU on his own terms after next season.
With an opportunity to get someone like Clark or Petersen who are both
experienced and with proven track records, it would be really, really stupid to
hire Max Hall to that position. But I also know that Max was Anae's baby
and Bronco loved Max almost as much as he loves Riley. So an insane decision to
hire Max as QB coach is not outside the realm of possibility.I, too,
am bewildered by the firing of Cahoon. There was a very noticeable improvement
in performance of the receivers once Cahoon took the helm. He definitely made an
impact.I feel very bad for Doman. He really is a great guy, huge
heart, and caring person. He would be very valuable to BYU if he were left on
the staff.Also, there are a lot of loyalties from the players
perspective with regard to the coaches. It will be interesting if any of the
players transfer as a result of this shuffling. Having the coach that recruited
you suddenly gone from the program will leave a lot of players feeling uneasy
about their status--even the heir-apparant starting QB Hill may be feeling
pretty uncomfortable right now.
@Brave Sir Robin"I remember that BYU played the 3rd-easiest
schedule in college football this year. I have to hand it to Bronco: If your
goal is to get bowl eligible, that's the way to do it."What? Didn't BYU play Boise State (#24), Norte Dame (#5), Oregon State
(#10), how can their schedule be "3rd-easiest schedule in college
football"? Unless you count Utah as a college football team. But even with
Utah, which is no better than any of the high school team in the nation, the
other teams BYU played should make up the strength of BYU's schedule.
@goodguygary "Unless you count Utah as a college football team. But even

I like how KSL and DNews reported that this was Bronco's decision. I
don't think it was. Somehow I get the feeling that Holmoe made this
Anae's decision. This can't be good for Bronco and Holmoe's
relationship because of Bronco's decision making being superseded. At the end of the day, winning cures all ills. If BYU meets their
potential because of all these changes, they will get all the shouts of praise
in the world. If not . . . the ranting and raving against the BYU administration
will be heard around the country.
@Cougar Claws"I like how KSL and DNews reported that this was

that Holmoe made this Anae's decision. This can't be good for Bronco
and Holmoe's relationship because of Bronco's decision making being
superseded."I'm certain you're right and it's
because Bronco has decided to finish out his contract (2013 is his last year)
and then the team will be turned over to Anae. Holmoe and Anae are former
teammates and friends and I think Holmoe has been frustrated wtih some of the
whacky decisions Bronco has been making of late (Riley Nelson) and doesn't
want to see that continue.
@Snack PAC..."Utah was only the third best team in the state in
2012."Alright guess Utah was only the third best team in the
state in 2012. So that would mean the cougies were only the fourth best team in
the state in 2012.
The team Offense deficit, due to “Bronco decided to stay with Riley no
matter what the cost.”turned out to be a crisis of depression level
economics which must be met with a balanced approach. The coach has to stop
spending for favorites at the cost of the bench sitters, the univerity and the
fans, while playing the best man, regardless of which party he belongs to.
My prediction; Anae will be the head coach in two years. I put myself out there.
Take your shots. My payoff will only come if and when this prediction happens.
Until then, take your shots.
To Tom in LA- with all your remembering (the U didn't go to a bowl) do you
also remember that The U beat the Y for the past 3 years? I still find humor in
a Y fan that ignores game results by pointing out who did and didn't play
in a bowl game, irregardless of the insignifigance of the bowl game or
difficulty in schedule.BYU lost to the teams that were better than them and the
U lost to the teams that were better than them. Schedule more teams that you can
beat and you'll go to a bowl game.
Just a question.....what does Max Hall bring to the table other than emotional
baggage and hatred?
Interesting about Max Hall. Love the fire, but obviously, it got the best of
him. In 2010, when Hall was an undrafted rookie, the coaching staff
for hte Cardinals took notice of him and he was the most polished QB of the four
they had in camp. Does that go back to his BYU training from Doman or genetics
from Uncle Danny or he simply was better? If Hall were 6-4 240 - he would
probably still be playing on Sundays, but then again he might not have ended up
at BYU and would have stayed at ASU like his uncle and grandfather. He was 6-1
200 lbs and two season ending injuries. The AZ O-line was horrible and about
got his neck broken. Anyway, where did he get those polished QB
skills? Did they come from Domans tutalage? Can Max Hall be an effective
teacher of those same skills he had? Those are my burning questions. BYU
should not hire Max Hall for his PR skills.
