“I have a ton of former players, JT Thomas, the Fort Bend County area, who played for me at UTEP. I have a couple of former Alabama State players coaching in the Houston area and a linebacker, Eric Birdsong, who played for us at Southern Mississippi who is coaching in Texas, and I’ll be reaching out to those guys. I’m looking forward to it.”
Holliday said his experience at BYU the past three and a half months has been brief, but he believes he knows the nuts and bolts. He has had many people tell him what they thought it was all about; but now hip-deep in it with a spring practice behind him, he understands much more.
“I’ve really enjoyed football here and it’s been good for me. It’s all its been cracked up to be for me. People say it’s this, its that, but for me, it’s just been good. I can’t complain.”
Next: In hiring Garrett Tujauge, former head coach at College of the Canyons, a few more doors may have opened for BYU football.
