Head Coach: Kalani Sitake        2017 Salary: N/A        Offensive Coordinator: Jeff Grimes       Defensive Coordinator: Ilaisa Tuiaki         

Stadium: LeVell Edwards Stadium       Surface: Grass        City: Provo        State: Utah

Brigham Young is a program that has fallen on hard times. The Cougars’ long record of success gave way to a 4-9 record last season. Now Brigham Young will be looking to bounce back. BYU had not experienced a losing season in 13 years, and failure is never expected in Provo. BYU has shaken up its coaching staff in the hopes of returning the team to its winning ways.

Offense was an area where BYU unexpectedly struggled last season, which is surprising given the program’s long track record of success on this side of the ball. The passing game was a disaster as quarterback Tanner Mangum was mediocre before a torn Achilles ended his season. The offense performed just well enough towards the tail end of last season to provide a glimmer of hope for this season as the Cougars established an identity as a running team.

The defense will be counted on to carry the team this season. Most of the defensive front seven returns, but the secondary will need to improve on its showing from last year for the Cougars to improve. The defense will have to keep the Cougars in the game while the offense finds its way.

Coach Kalani Sitake made multiple changes to the coaching staff in order to shake things up for BYU. There is a new offensive coordinator because, in Provo, averaging 17 points per game is unacceptable. Sitake is possibly coaching for his job this season in the third year of his regime.
