I wish Brian all the best at Mississippi State. I am disappointed to see him
go. I think he is a great position coach and has become one of the Utes better
recruiters the last few years. Brian has a great young football
mind and I hope to see him back on the Utes sidelines someday.I just
hope Kyle doesn't look down south for his replacement. The coaching staff
has way too many of his inner circle former cougars. I hear they are looking at
the QB coach from Wake Forrest. I don't know much about him, but that
would be a refreshing change.
BJ, GOOD LUCK! You are a class act. Thanks for your work in the community as
well as at the U.The bad news - you are going to the SEC. Frying
pan and fire. Yes, MSU went 7-6 but they had three cupcake wins against Bowling
Green, Troy, and Alcorn State. They struggled to beat Arkansas, Kentucky and
Ole Miss. They could just as easily have finished at 5-7 (sound familiar?)
Tennessee and Florida will both be better. MSU won't finish higher than
5th out of 8 teams in the SEC West and 10th out of 14 overall. The coaching
staff there is also on the hot seat. A bad year will see them all canned. MSU has a talented, but erratic sophomore (again, sound familiar?) QB in
Dak Prescott. They did NOT recuit a QB this year. There is no clear choice for
back-up. I'm not sure this position was a step up. Give it your best
It's a good time to leave before Whitt's last season.
Great move - timing is everything.
Smart move to get out before the pink slips are handed out in December.Good luck and may success be found in Mississippi.
Good luck BJ and Roll the Tide!
Best of luck to BJ. I hope he does well.SEC rules that was
hilarious. Max Hall might be #2 candidate
BJ is a class act as a player, coach, and a person. I like to think we will see
him again one day on the Utah sideline. Best of luck to you, Brian!
Thanks for your contributions to the program both as a player and a coach. We
will never forget your MVP performance in the Sugar Bowl! Best of luck in your
Good for Brian. He finally bets to be a part of a winning program. Best of luck
