If i buy one of these dominator hoops, i hope i get a 2 hour private coaching session. Ok 1 hour private coaching session from any of the doman brothers. Please not from verl. I love verl but the boys have all the talent. Verl however is an excellent salesman. Good luck domans!

Wow, I really feel badly for Brandon. He went from one of the hottest coaching prospects in the country to BYU's OC and now to nothing in football. What a shame.

Doman was thrown under the bus for Bronco's mismanagement of Jake Heaps and subsequent decision to stick with a Division II quality safety as QB.

I used to play basketball with Bryce up at the A Frame church off of Wasatch Blvd and about 35th South. Bryce played football with my uncle at Skyline and they were really good friends. Bryce was a great guy. Too bad that didn't rub off on Brandon. Brandon was my age, but never came to play ball with his brother. Ahh, the good old days of the mid to late 90's. Hopefully all works out for Brandon and his new endeavor. If all else fails, I bet he could get a job as an asst at Idaho St or some school like that.

Brandon does have the talent and the personality to be successful in coaching... He was simply moved too quickly...Another 2 or 3 years as QB Coach and maybe Assistant OC he would have been good to go in any Division 1 program... In about 5 or 6 years he would have been a great candidate for a Head Coaching Job at the Division 1 level...

Both BYU and Brandon were put in a tough spot... The Offense was lagging, Anae wasn't feeling support, and the fan base was expecting too much. Consequently Bronco and Anae did what they thought was best for Anae and for the program, but it was too fast for Doman. I would have preferred to have had Doman stick as an Assistant another couple of years but that probably would make little sense from a "chemistry" and "pride" stand point... Brandon however, should have stayed in coaching because he does have what it takes with the right Apprenticeship program to become very successful in the Coaching Profession.

Oh, and Chris B, regardless of who BYU starts at QB (and I am talking any of the top 3) will be far better than Utah's this year.


Thank you for changing your photo.

Yes thank you for changing the photo. my bad


Goodness Poyman Chris B can be annoying but why so touchy? The Cougs have some good looking QBs but probably not three deep to the Utes starter. I know it is a small sample size but based on last year I'd say that Taysom Hill and Travis Wilson are pretty even to start the year. Here's to hoping for a couple break out years by the them both.

Good luck Brandon on your future, I hope to see you in coaching again one day.

Also, good luck to the BYU Basketball team in New York in the NIT semi finals. Hope ya'll can take it to Baylor and finish it up with a win in the Championship!!

And yet, even if you have 3 QB's better than we do, we'll still end with more points on the scoreboard, just as we've done with 3rd string QB's the past few years!

On with the Quest for Relevance. lol.

Good one Chris B. Bring up BYU QBs on the heels of two consecutive seasons where your coach pinned all his Pac hopes on the fragile Jordan Wynn, and ultimately a true "Division II" QB in Jon Hayes (at least until he threw in the towel last year and started planning for the future). You're just too funny.

I hope he will try again in coaching starting at a smaller scale. Good luck Brandon.

Chicken, meet egg.

Who know whether it was Bronco or Brandon. My guess is it was both. I saw nothing impressive out of either one lately. Just a bunch of bad judgement and the results to prove it.

Adding insult to injury they bring back Anai who wasn't any good and a horrific play caller when he was here before.

I'm sure everything will be fixed now;) /sarcasm

Good for him. Now make the business go and resign as offensive coordinator. Last two seasons were the worst play calling in Cougar history. Doman has no business being an offensive coordinator.

Big Ute fan but always said Brandon was the cream of the crop coming out of BYU. Good guy and I would not bet against him in anything he decides to do. Take Jim McMahon's advice and enjoy the view of BYU from the rear view mirror.

Having grown up with the Domans I have to say I'm extremely happy for Brandon with this new endeavor with his Dad and siblings. I have a sneaking suspicion that he'll be a lot happier having moved on from coaching at the Y. No disrespect intended toward BYU, I just know how tight the Doman family is and what great people they are. I don't doubt that they'll all enjoy being around each other more while growing their business together.
Congrats on your decision to move out of coaching Brandon, and good luck with the business.

Look for him to be re-hired in two years.

I am not the least bit surprised Brandon did not want to play basketball with you, I doubt anyone else is surprised either. Playing against bad competition can lead to injuries and I doubt very much that Brandon wanted to take that risk.

It seems BYU could have done more to honor someone who was so loyal to the program. It was kind of cold way to show him the door.

Parker, CO

I'm surprised he didn't get picked up by the utes as a coach of some kind.
