With less than two weeks until BYU’s Winter Semester begins, Wednesday brought some more clarity to BYU’s search for an offensive coaching staff.
Running Backs coach Reno Mahe tweeted about a “new chapter” and the “next adventure” in his life, indicating that he will not be retained as BYU’s running backs coach. Here is the message he tweeted out:
FootballScoop, the same outlet that broke the news of the Jeff Grimes as offensive coordinator hire, is reporting that Aaron Roderick and Fesi Sitake are “strong candidates” to be added to the staff.
Aaron Roderick was on Utah’s staff for a number of years as Offensive Coordinator. Wide Receivers and Quarterbacks coach. His tenure as OC was up and down, but he was an excellent WR’s coach and recruiter. Roderick coached NFL receivers Freddie Brown, David Reed and Dres Anderson during his time as WR coach.
Fesi Sitake, first cousin of Kalani, is currently the offensive coordinator and QB coach for Weber State. Fesi helped lead one of the most successful seasons in the Wildcats’ history, as they advanced in the FCS playoffs.
With LSU wrapping up its bowl game on New Year’s day (Jeff Grimes will coach in that game) and BYU’s Winter Semester to start January 8, the best bet is that BYU will announce the rest of its coaching staff next week sometime.
