Now that the NCAA has allowed for one more coach on a staff, I'd include
Gary if I could. He has been an asset wherever he has been...from Ricks College
to Oregon State. Too bad it didn't work out at the Beavers, but
there's a lot of coaching in this man, and BYU would be a destination that
would be a good fit for the Y and a good fit for him and his family.As far as the early signing period, that is exactly what it is. It's not
the official time for a player to commit to a program, they can offically commit
when they are offered, but it is the official time for them to sign to a
program. BYU has some quality guys ready to hop on board, and that includes
guys that have grades and talent.
A little fantasy football here....let's find a way to hire Gary Andersen
into the BYU football program...
Good luck to Coach Sitake and his coaching staff. Recruiting at BYU has to be a
nightmare - high academics, honor code, missionary carousel, uber-conservative
campus environment, and unrealistic fan expectations.On a side note - I
found this quote from John Canzano of The Oregonian concerning the mess at
Oregon State - "It's obvious Andersen hired the wrong guys for key
positions on this staff. I don't think we can underestimate the impact that
losing defensive coordinator Kalani Sitake had on Andersen's tenure..."
