What about Andy Reid for OC?

Lindon, UT

Can't wait!

Idaho Falls, ID

Please, say it ain't so!

Reality, UT

Not sure that Reid will have the time as he will be quite busy as the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Great news for BYU fans!

Anae is an excellent Offensive Coordinator.

Cottonwood Heights, UT

Roscoe likes him now? Was it the 2 years spent in the Pac-12 that made him smarter and less abrasive?

Salt Lake City, UT

Awesome! All those that yelled for Anae to go got their wish with Doman...Now all those that yelled for Doman to go got their wish with Anae...Everybody's happy!

This is a good start. At least we now know there is some serious decision making going on.

Anae was not a bad coach. I think he had personality conflicts with players due to polynesian sense of humor or lack thereof as the story went. Could be redemptive. Doman staying on as QB coach is a head scratcher though. Not sure he truly understands a throw first run second QB position.

What's changed between Anae's original "resignation" and now? The disorganization is entertaining.

Farmington, UT

Surely this is an improvement and I look forward to it.

Well, it's funny how things change over 2 years. I remember everyone was like "Good riddance Anae, bring on Doman". I found the article where Anae resigns and here are some of the comments:

Bring on Doman and Detmer!

Let the era of a Doman coached offense begin! It's a great time to be a Cougar fan!

From my understanding most BYU fans did not like his play calling, and so i am assuming this is a good thing.

It was time boys and girls... time for Anae to move on and allow Mendenhall the opportunity to choose his own replacement

Thank you Coach Mendenhall for a most "excellent" Christmas gift...

Why can't they just say that they canned him? Are they letting him "resign" so he can save face ore something?

This is a good move by all parties. At best Anae's direction was inconsistant.

I've been telling Coug fans for weeks that Reid would have no interest in the BYU OC job, but his name kept being posted on comment boards as a possible OC for BYU.

This is all part of BYU's master plan to get everyone to forget that the last several years ever happened. Next step: Rejoin the MWC.

Anae's PAC 12 "experience" wasn't even a factor. Robert always had a good working relationship with Mendenhall, as shown by the fact that his son stayed at BYU after Robert left. It has been reported that there was some tension between Reynolds and Anae, but with Reynolds retiring and all of the Reynolds brothers now graduated, that will no longer be an issue.

BYU's offense will rival BYU's defense next season, which is a scary prospect for the kids on the hill.

"The disorganization is entertaining."

The angst from the BYU haters is what's really entertaining.

I'll admit I was one of the fans who was looking forward to seeing what Doman could go and getting away from the predictability of Anae's offense. "Lined up in the I on first down. They're running it. Again." And I can take a piece of that humble pie and say I was wrong for thinking Doman was the answer. Anae was still very good and though I feel he cost us a couple games with poor time management and play calling at times he is definitely an improvement and I look forward to seeing his offense on the field! Go Cougars!!!

BYU really owes this guy an apology. He was thrown under the bus, shoved over the cliff, shown the door, handed his hat, given the Bum's Rush - call it what you will - but he was treated very shabbily after all the work he had done and the success he achieved. Not many people would return after that treatment, especially considering the success he was having at Arizona. I just hope they let him do his job this time.

Salt Lake City, UT

Where's Ducky with his sermon on hypocracy? The same posters who ran Anae out of town are now gleefully posting of his return.
