PROVO, Utah – BYU head football coach Kalani Sitake will be entering his fourth season at the helm in Provo and has expressed a greater appreciation for the University.

At BYU Media Day, Sitake was asked what he has learned about himself over the last three years as the head coach.

“Before I was a football coach, I was a BYU fan,” Sitake said. “I am honestly still glad that I am a BYU fan. I have loved every second about this job.”

Sitake is still without a contract extension entering the final year of his deal. It has been noted how beloved the former BYU fullback is by his players and the coaches on his staff.

“I feel bad that I love it so much,” he stated. “The 10 years that I spent at Utah, I loved every minute of it as a coach. But there is something about being at the place that you grew up cheering for. Then you get to play and now you are the head coach.”

Sitake took over with less than ideal circumstances after the departure of Bronco Mendenhall to Virginia. But, Sitake has taken the right steps to get BYU back to being a great team.

“I am living the dream,” Sitake said. “The thing that I have learned the most is that I really love this school.”
