Nice bounce...from independant to PAC 12!!! If this was indeed a fireing like was suggested...then Anae came out smelling like....ROSES...pardon the pun!!!

Fresno, CA

Congratulations Coach. I wish you the best of success in Arizona!

Congratulations Coach Anae and good luck in Arizona!

One nice thing about Arizona instead of Maryland, you'll still have a chance to beat Utah every year.

Remind me again, dalep2u, how many times has Arizona been to the Rose Bowl?

Heber City, UT

I think combined the AZ schools have only been to the Rose Bowl twice in their history as a PAC 10 member. It could only be one of them making the trip. Maybe this will be the turning point for them with a new offense and the chance to beat Utah every year.

Glad to see Anae land a job quickly, if this is true and it is a great move for Az.

Boise, ID

I'm happy to hear Anae landed a nice position quickly. Best of luck.

American Fork, UT

Arizona is a program on the rise. Good luck to Coach Anae.

As many times as BYU has played in a BCS game.

Good luck coach, welcome to the PAC-12 South.

@ Uteology

How many times has BYU won a national championship?

Ha Ha, @Fed Employee, you beat me to the punch. No worries, @dalep2u, no pun at all!

I didn't think it would be long before someone snapped up Coach Anae. Glad to have you with us in the PAC-12

Cedar Hills, UT

Pretty good deal for all involved.

Good luck coach.

Provo, UT

Great deal for Coach Anae.

Arizona could be smelling Roses!

The Arizona scouting report on a new foe just got much better.

Anae vs. Chow and Anae vs. Roderick should be fun to watch.

Danbury, CT

The Pac 12 is definitely a step up, although Tucson is not the best place to live. Good luck to Anae. Like many others we have chased out of Provo, watch for Anae to suddenly become an offensive genius.

Now, who do we get to fix the offense? Is Bronco going to do ALL the coaching? When will BYU break out and finally become the national powerhouse we have been making them out to be all these years?? It's about time we put some great coaches in place (hard to do with the Y's budget) and bust out of the mid majors.

I have to agree with the Ute fans that it is embarrassing that BYU has never been to a BCS bowl (they could have been Rose Bowl Champs this year instead of TCU).

Kaysville, UT

Anae got a great opportunity fast because of his work ethic and abilities. I'm pleased he landed where he can use his talents without the burden of carrying a seminary teacher on his back.
Too bad he didn't land in Utah.

Go Utes.

The PAC-10 is all about the University of Southern California Trojans, not any Arizona university. It is a nice move for Anae though. Why doesn't the PAC-10 stay the PAC-10? The Big 10 already has 11 members before Nebraska, and they are not changing their name to the Big 12 or whatever.

Anae vs. Roderick? I guess that assumes A-Rod is back at the U. next year?

Maricopa, AZ

Sorry, Arizona is not on the rise.
They had their "break out year" this year, 7-5 and promptly lost their final 4 games, with a blowout
loss to OK state.
They're losing a bunch of guys on both sides of the line.
The wildcats have never even smelled the rose bowl.
But as they say in Tucson, softball season is coming soon!
