BYU officially announced a 3-year contract extension for Kalani Sitake, keeping BYU’s head coach under contract through 2023. Kalani’s previous contract was set to expire after 2020.

“We are pleased to announce a contract extension for Kalani,” said Holmoe. We believe in him and the direction of the program. Together we are committed to creating a bright future for BYU football.”

Tom Holmoe first announced the extension to the players after the Idaho State game by revealing a “#ExtendKalani” t-shirt under his jacket.

Kalani’s tenure has been up and down, but the extension comes in the midst of one of the toughest schedules in BYU history. BYU is currently 6-4 and could finish 9-4 if they win out through the bowl game.

Kalani’s extension also plays a role on the recruiting trail, as potential recruits weren’t sure if he would still be around after the 2020 season. BYU is in play for some high level 2020 recruits, incluing 4-star OT Andrew Gentry, so the extension could ease some minds for potential recruits and their families.
