Andrew & I just talked about this on last week's CFB Podcast:

BYU removes Ty Detmer as offensive cooridnator

BYUs only Heisman Trophy winner in school history may forever have a spot among the immortals of BYU football, but even that is not enough to save Ty Detmer his job as offensive coordinator. On Monday, BYU relieved Detmer as offensive coordinator as head coach Kalani Sitake looks to make improvements on the offensive side of the football. Detmer, however, remains under contract with BYU and may be moved to a different position.

The offensive numbers speak volumes for why this change was made in Provo. BYU ranked 119th in total offense, 124th in scoring offense, 120th in red zone scoring percentage (and 127th in red zone touchdown percentage), and 91st in passing offense. It has been a long season for the Cougars offense, and a change had to be made. Perhaps a reduced role on the staff will lead to a better performance. Detmer focusing all of his coaching energy on coaching the quarterbacks, for example, seems to be the logical step as long as Detmer is under contract for another year.

BYU joined the coaching staff under Sitake in 2016. Detmer, a College Football Hall of Famer, had previously been a high school coach for six seasons before returning to his alma mater.

I remember times going way back to early in the season when you could visually see Sitake and Detmer bickering on the sidelines during BYU games about how the offense was being called and executed. Those two men were clearly not on the same page and simply had to figure this move had to be made. Of course, it isn't all an OC issue. BYU lacked big time play making downfield vertical threats at wide receiver this season more than they have in past years and that made their offense all that much more pedestrian and simplistic for opposing defenses to scheme against.

Let the record show that I won a bet on a BYU over this season. Felt like a hit a 9-teamer.

Remember -- that came against a schedule that included East Carolina, San Jose St, UNLV, UMass and Hawaii.

I'd have fired him in September, but that's not how they do business at BYU (and that's probably a good thing)....
