    I had the privilege of meeting Coach Niumatalolo almost a year ago when he visited the University of Utah, and I trust he's found a very good assistant in Mr. Nua. Good luck to him, and hopefully he'll be there as a big contributor when they make the move up to conference play in a few years!

    @otis and boisedoof

    Uh coach Nua was a graduate assitant at BYU and there were no openings to move up to a full time coach. Graduate assistants make little to nothing. Getting a job as a full time assistant coach is a promotion, a step up.

    ute and boise st "fans"....exibiting ignorance since the dawn of time...the dawn of time for them being about 2004 by the way.

    I think Nua will do great at Navy. The reasons that many coaches leave Boise and go to the SEC, PAC 12, BIG 10, etc. Is because of the financial incentive.

    We all know the real reason Nua is leaving BYU. He can see the iceberg.

    I'm sure you said the same thing about Gary Andersen and Norm Chow right?

    Do you have some inside information ? It is obvious you do not, coach Nua has the deepest respect for Bronco, they have a friendship that goes beyond football. Coach Nua had the raw talent and Bronco helped him find the heart to excel while playing for the BYU so step off the fake info train. There is not an ounce of malice or ill will in this departure for a new coaching job. Otis, pretending to have inside information is weak and very poor form.

    You have zero credibility. Embarrassing !

    Otis, and the same could be said for Coach Chow? Sorry your little jab fell short.

    No kidding, Otis. Case in point, look at the exodus of assistants away from the utah program...

    Honestly, can you blame him? It's like working as a deck-hand on the Titanic. Of course you are going to jump ship at the first chance you get.

    I wish you well in your new job. You will do excellent.
