    Reynolds should have been the head coach instead of crowton, he should have been the head coach instead of Bronco. He went through virtual Hell on Bronco's staff, not being able to speak his mind, and not being able to do things his way (the right way). The men stuck by BYU through thick and thin, all he gets is one little story? Seriously? He, and his family have done more for BYU football than any other family, and this is what he gets? Typical BYU.

    I have only met him once but was a delightful person. His brother lives in my neighborhood. His brother coached at BYU years ago and one of the brothers that played at BYU also lives in the neighborhood. All great people. Big Utah fan but have found this family to be a class act.

    I only met Coach Reynolds when he traveled with his mission president to Moses Lake Washington, when I was barely 12. He set the pattern early that missionary service was important, more important than football. I always admired that.

    Coach Reynolds is purely a class individual. He is so well respected and will be missed. I know the vacancy will be well utilized by Bronco to bring in a great new member to his staff with initials TD as OC.

    Coach Reynolds is the type of person that quietly does his job and does it well, then let's the others receive the glory and praise for a job well done. He was a very unassuming man and I have great respect for him. Every program needs those types of individuals and with egos in sports the true individual of that demeanor is a rare find. The Cougars were blessed to have him be a part of the program for over three decades and I personally say "Thank You" and "I Wish You Well."

    So, explain to me why he was displaced as running backs coach?

    BYU is losing an incredible talent. To say that he will be missed is putting it lightly. BYU is indeed fortunate to have had such a loyal individual who passed over any number of opportunities to stay with the team. Best of luck Coach.

    A Ute Fan.

    Thank you Lance ,
    Your a Great Coach but a Better Man, Father and Husband. In all my years I have never met someone who made you feel as welcome as you did. You had high expectations of all of us , but when dark clouds came you were the first to pitch in and help.

    Thanks for all you did , you are a BYU Icon sitting with Lavell Edwars as one of the all time Greats !.

    Why do I have the feeling the Coug's are only going to get worse.
