    Chow's an elite college OC, arguably the best in the country. Nobody has a better resume. It would be a huge boost to Utah's program to get him to come. Neuheisel has a legendary inability to get along with other coaches and Chow wants to leave, but he's been negotiating with USC for weeks and hasn't been able to come to terms, so it's hard to believe he would voluntarily leave UCLA and accept Utah money.

    If Neuheisel forces him out, however it has to pay him his salary minus what he would get at Utah and that might make Utah a possibility.

    Since Meyer left Utah it has gone back to running basically what BYU runs and that's close to what Chow likes. He would probably put the QB under center most of the time and use more two back sets. Chow would love to have BYU's two QBs (Heaps and Lark), but could probably do something with the Robles kid at the U.

    Add MY name to the list of Cougars who want to see Norman's triumphant return to his Alma Mater.

    The LAST time he was OC against BYU and Bronco's defense, the score was BYU 59 - UCLA 0. I would LOVE to see something along those lines on Saturday, Sept. 17th, 2011 at LES.

    But, I'm sure hedgie or Chris B or another of their kind will come along behind me to point out that Chow will have better athletes to work with at the Yew than he had at UCLA. First off, LOL at that thought. Second of all, okay, just for grins, I'll play along for a sec and say this might be true.

    Okay, adjusted score for 9-17-2011:

    BYU 59
    Yewtah 6

    Welcome on back to the old stomping grounds, Norm.

    The commenters above who want coach Chow to come and fail or who think it would be a blow to BYU's ego if he was successful should try and get some class. It would be a big stretch for some of you but at least make an effort please.
    As a football fan, BYU first but also one who enjoys watching Utah, I would love to see Chow come to Utah and be successful in the PAC. I thought he did a great job at BYU and hope he does well wherever he ends up.
    Having said that I do believe that although Chow was an innovator and a major component in putting BYU on the map and making them nationally relevant, I believe at this time the rest of the nation has caught up with him and he is just another peddler of a common product. If he has a good players, especially a QB, he could be very successful at Utah. He certainly has an advantage here with a head coach like Kyle Whittingham.

    I think BYU fans comments above are pathetic! Chow was a great part of BYU history, and was basically pushed out. Show some respect and grow up.

    Chow is a blast from the BYU past.

    Like Whittingham Sr. before him, BYU fans have long since moved on couldn't care less if Chows finishes his last couple of years coaching at the U.

    So is chow the utah "fans" holy grail? I suppose when you only scored abot 30 points total over the last half of your season even a washed up has been looks like an upgrade to whatever you have calling your plays now. I for one hope this happens. Comedy will be sure to ensue. LOL

    Though passive aggresive, I agree with you Hawk.

    Nothing would kill the tds ego more than Chow being successful at the U.

    Doh!man or Chow.... hmmm

    Dr. Hill and Coach Whittingham: Please do whatever is in your power to bring Norm Chow to "the hill". Many of us would LOVE to see him on the utah sideline or in the booth directing the ute offense.
