BYU Football: Cougars name Zach Nyborg as new Director of Football Operations

Lavell Edwards Stadium - George Frey

After spending a year in Wisconsin and three years at Utah State, Nyborg comes home to BYU.

With the retirement of Duane Busby, an employee of the football department for almost 20 years, the Cougars have announced his replacement.  Zach Nyborg, a graduate of Brigham Young University, has accepted the position and has been officially announced as the new Director of Football Operations.  Nyborg returns to BYU after graduating in 2011 and spending three years at Utah State and a year at Wisconsin, where he held the same position.

Nyborg grew up in Centerville and lettered in football, basketball, and track at Viewmont High School before leaving for an LDS mission to Tennessee.  While still going to school at BYU, Nyborg was on the Timpview High School staff as the freshman coach and offensive coordinator.  He then joined the Aggies staff in 2010, where he mainly worked with the offense, special teams and recruiting.  In 2011, he continued to work with recruiting but moved over to work on the defensive side of the ball.  In 2012, he continued to move up the ranks as his responsibilities included working with the quarterbacks and serving as both the recruiting coordinator and the assistant to the head coach, Gary Anderson.

When Coach Anderson took the job with Wisconsin, Nyborg moved with him and took over the director of football operations position for the Badgers.  His experience in the Big Ten and working with other programs will bring an added benefit of experience to the Cougars program, even though he has large shoes to fill.  Many of his responsibilities will include the day-to-day operations of the program, travel, player schedules, and budgeting.
