Congratulations Brandon!

You've done a great job as BYU QB coach and I look forward to watching an exciting BYU offense next season.

Salt Lake City, UT

Great news for BYU football! Both will be great assets to the program.
It's a great time to be a BYU football fan!

And it begins.

Nice! Should be fun to see how this turns out.

Well let's see how he does. Hopefully well but time will tell.

Congratulations Brandon!

You're going to be an outstanding Offensive Coordinator.

Like the phoenix, this is just the next step in Bronco raising BYU's football program from the ashes to the glory days BYU enjoyed under LaVell.

Great news and just what the Cougs needed!

I'm looking forward to the next few years of BYU football!

Doman gets it, and the LBs looked a lot better after Poppinga started working with them.

Next year will be very interesting.

As always I have to say I am a Utah fan but I have to give Coach Mendnhall his due. These two men are excellent choices for their respective positions. Coaches Doman and Poppinga are definantaly going to help BYU in the upcoming years.
I wish them both the best of luck and I look forward to seeing what they will come up with next season.

Brandon was an exciting player to watch and I'm expecting that same fire and passion to be exhibited in BYU's offense next season.

I'll bet Jake and the rest of BYU's offensive players are thrilled with the prospects for next season.

It's a great time to be a BYU fan!

Farmington, UT

Can't wait to see what next year brings!

South Jordan, UT

Exciting stuff, Doman is the man for this job! This will be a fun couple of years for BYU football

Surprise Surprise - I actually think these are good decisions. Both seem worthy candidates.

However(you knew it was coming) byu still doesn't have athletic ability to compete with the likes of Ole Miss, Texas, Utah, UCF, and Oregon State next year.

BYU at best wins 1 of those 5(and it won't be the Utah game)

South Jordan, UT

We're excited about the new offensive coordinator, Brandon Doman. Congratulations! It's a good fit! It's exciting to see all the positive feedback on this call.

Go BYU! Go Cougars!

"BYU still doesn't have athletic ability to compete with the likes of Ole Miss, Texas, Utah, UCF, and Oregon State next year."

You're hillarious Chris.

BYU DESTROYED Oregon State in the Las Vegas Bowl just a year ago, and beat Oklahoma, which is just as athletic as Texas.

As far as Utah is concerned, don't hold your breath expecting a Utah win at LES next season.

Draper, UT

Funny, Chris B. BYU met Oregon State a year ago and the same things were said then. The result, Oregon St. got blown out. The same was said a year and a half ago against OU, the result, BYU wins 14-13.

Heck to bring a Ute example into it, people said that the U had no change against Bama, and that they're "superior" athletes were going to wipe the floor with Utah. That obviously didn't happen.

BYU starts off 4-1 or 3-2, and the loss(es) won't be against Utah.

Orem, UT

This is great news for BYU. Mendenhall knows what he's doing.

Oh c'mon. As a U grad I am always ashamed by the low level of logic that comes from some of the fans of the U. The Y not having enough talent to compete with the U? The Y beat "your team" quite handily for 3.5 quarters THIS year and ended up short by only one point. Don't make us look stupid.

Creativity, Ingenuity, Aggression, and Speed are all welcome back to BYU!
