Brandon Doman: We're going to return to our roots

Brandon Doman once won his first 14 starts as the BYU quarterback.

Now, as the Cougars’ offensive coordinator, Doman says the offense will have a different feel next season.

As BYU nears the finish of spring practice, Doman said, “We’re going to return to our roots.”

“I want BYU fans to feel like we are attacking, and through the air. I want them to feel like this is the BYU offense of old, and that we are going to throw the football a lot, like we used to do.”

Luckily for Doman, he’ll have talented sophomore quarterback Jake Heaps under center when the Cougars open on the road at Ole Miss.

Doman is part of a revamped staff that include new wide receivers coach Ben Cahoun and former Navy assistant Joe DuPaix. DuPaix is coaching the running backs and serving as the recruiting coordinator.

Head coach Bronco Mendenhall likes the chemistry of the new staff and told the Salt Lake Tribune, “I have had more fun this past two months, or however long it has been, than in the last six years.”

Those are some interesting comments, but not the most interesting involving BYU today.

During an morning interview on ESPN Radio, former BYU quarterback Jim McMahon was asked his thoughts on Brandon Davies’ suspension from the BYU basketball team for reportedly violating the school’s honor code of not having premarital sex.

McMahon said he had a simple solution back in the day.

“You had to find girls who kept their mouths shut.”
