Coach Whit came out with a statement that he loves Utah and that he is happy where he is at.
Meanwhile, what he is not saying is drowning out this entire discussion. Here is what we know…Utah’s AD, Hill, expected to fire Witt after a poor 2014 showing, that did not happen. The evidence came in the form of Hill not extending any of the assistant coaches contracts. This all backfired on Hill when Utah contended for a P12 title and a blowout of CSU in their bowl game. All the assistants bolted even after Hill offered to up their pay by up to $800,000 per year but it was a lot too late. Whit is left naked and since all the juicy head coaching positions had been filled, Whit is stuck with saying that he is happy at Utah.
The irony in all of this was the merry-go-round had Bronco looking at Wisconsin (mildly) but salivating at the Oregon State HC job and consequently Whit looking not only at some of the same vacancies but even crazier, here at BYU but it was all a little late as they were all filled.
Word on the street is that Whit is in dire need of good offensive and defensive coordinators. They glaring loss here is Sataki and the poli-pipeline. I have heard that some recruits have backed off of their commits.
