Doman we all knew there would be a learning curve, good job on growing and leading, we all wish Jake would have stayed and red shirted, but unfortunately he did not. Don't beat yourself up about anything this year, all in all you have done a fine job I think and I am sure it will continue to improve. Best of luck

Yes, Brandon has improved as the year progressed. It's a shame that Jake became the collateral damage. Never have heard Brandon suggest that maybe HE bears some of the blame for "Jakes" early season problems....

Just out of curiosity why would a program like BYU who eats sleeps their football give the keys of their offense to a has been QB with little to no OFF Coordinating experience? I mean he's coaching for what a few years and he's ready? you guys keep everything so internally that you miss out on better candidates and coaches.

Scored 10 points on Utah, barely beat USU and lost to every other descent team but creamed the lower half of the WAC - A+.

Or you can look at it as a 9-3 record, top 50 in total offense in the 1st year of him taking over (#41 this year, 25 spots up from last year), and a guy that has a team who can put up more than 14 points against 2 win teams and actually beat them...yeah, I'd say A+ is about right.

Go Cougars!

Spin Spin Spin ... hype hype hype. Don't be fooled again. Doman offensive play calling is completely predictable and boring. Our coaches cannot conceive of an offense where the pass "sets up the run." Bronco & Doman were not around when we had some truly great offensive minds and they will NEVER approach Edwards/Doug Scovil/Ted Tollner/Mike Holmgren/ abilities. That's not to say it can't be done. Ex-BYU student and new WSU coach Mike Leach gets it. Beating up on extremely poor competition does not prove play calling ability or anything close to it. Sorry Brandon & Bronco. Suggesting you didn't have the QB's to execute is really bad excuse ... your offensive play calling started poorly and continues ... you just have had zero competition after being exposed with losses to average opponents.

Brandon is a great individual. He will succeed and be a hot commodity in not too many years.

Replace him. D+ is probably better than he deserves...

I think Doman's self assessment is accurate. I think he'll be fine will get even better next year. I do think that BYU needs to hire a QB coach, though. Has anyone asked Detmer?

I know Doman is torn up about Jake and does feel some responsibility for Jake's, but I think he will be pleased with what he sees in Spring camp.

Sheesh. I think I snoozed through my last comment. Here's the corrected post:

I know Doman is torn up about Jake and does feel some responsibility for Jake's troubles early in the season, but I think he will be pleased with what he sees in Spring camp.

Doman is a good guy. He's honest, humble, good leader, and very down-to-earth. I know the players really like him.

QB coach definitely needed.

Sorry, dude, we're no longer accepting comments from folks still stuck in September. You whine about the patsies we beat because it hurts too much to cry about the patsies that beat U.

Doman will get very good then the Utes will hire him! Happened twice before!

I'm with Y Grad / Y Dad --

No more comments from folks still stuck in September . . . .

and no more comments from folks still stuck in 1984.

I agree with idablue. Cougs need to hire a QB coach. This will allow Doman to focus on his role as OC. Maybe in 3 - 5 years, with some experience under his belt, Doman will be able to manage both jobs. But for now, he needs to focus more attention on offensive strategy and play calling, and bring in someone else to work with and develop the QBs. In 2013, we will be back to young, inexperienced QBs again.

I remember well when at the end of the Chow era, everyone was calling for him to move on. He's probably glad he did....NCST and coaching Philip Rivers, USC and we don't need to say anthing else. In more recent times, everyone wanted to run out Robert Anae, so how did that work out getting Doman to be the OC. I'm sure time will be kind when he gets some experience. Still, we have the best WR's in years to play here and we have a lousy offense this year against a not hard schedule. That = a C grade for the OC and the QB. Not sure how that will change except the schedule is weak again so the Cougs should win 10 games again, which is nothing to brag about given the oompetition they play.

I'm sure he has done his Home Teaching, but not his preparation to assume this job. Doman should resign or request reassignment. There was nothing creative in the BYU offense this year and he lost his best quarterback. Were I Heaps, I would have left last spring after it became obvious that there was no plan and before Doman took an excellent player and converted him into something much less. How many others will he drive away? It's good that Bronco loves walk-ons...that's what he may have at quarterback in the4 future.
