Four days before Saturday’s season opener, BYU announced that they have signed head football coach Kalani Sitake to a contract extension through the 2025 season.
“We are happy to sign Kalani to an extension that keeps him connected to BYU for years to come,” Holmoe said in the release. “This is about setting our student-athletes up for success. Kalani’s culture of love and learning has created an incredible environment for his student-athletes and Cougar Nation that we are all inspired by.”
BYU is coming off a 11-1 season and #11 finish in the AP Poll, BYU’s highest finish since the 1996 season when they finished #5.
Since a disastrous 4-9 season in 2017, Kalani has followed that up with records of 7-6, 7-6, and 11-1. Kalani is 3-1 in bowl games during his tenure.
Kalani’s last contract extension came in 2019 when BYU extended him through 2023. This extension gives him two more years on top of that.
Congrats to Kalani and here’s to a memorable 2021 campaign!
