BYU Football names Jeff Grimes as new offensive coordinator

  • Grimes accepted the offensive coordinator position at BYU on Thursday but will stay with LSU through the bowl game

BYU football has secured its new offensive coordinator, replacing Ty Detmer with Jeff Grimes.

Head coach Kalani Sitake made it official Thursday morning after several media outlets including Fox 13 reported that the hire was imminent.

Grimes coached the Cougar offensive line from 2004 to 2006. There's no telling if Detmer would even want to remain on the staff, but one would imagine he would if there was an offer.

On Friday, the top court ruled that Zuma's appointment of a state prosecutor was not valid and should be set aside immediately. Zuma's ruling African National Congress welcomed the court decision.

Grimes' first time serving as a position coach in college came at the Division III level when he served for two seasons as offensive line coach for Hardin-Simmons (Abilene, Texas). "BYU will immediately begin a search for a new offensive coordinator". I know Detmer has two years of that experience - and that he ran an offense similar to LSU's - but I'm not sure how much experience is worth when the results aren't there. The Tigers report back to school the day after Christmas on the 26th.

The Tigers then won a national title in Grimes' second season with the program.

Grimes has spent the past four years as the running game coordinator and offensive line coach for LSU, under Les Miles (2014-16) and Ed Orgeron (2016-17). LSU still finished fifth in the Southeastern Conference in rushing with 210 yards a game, and quarterback Danny Etling finished sixth in passing with 2,234 yards despite 25 sacks.

"Grimes coached at Virginia Tech in 2013 in the same capacity, helping the Hokies to an 8-5 season under the legendary Frank Beamer". His offensive line paved the way for four straight 1,000-yard rushers in each of his four seasons at the SEC school.

"In one season at Boise State in 2000, Grimes' offensive line helped the Broncos lead the nation in scoring offense with an average of 44.9 points per game".

"A native of Garland, Texas, Grimes, 49, and his wife, Sheri, have four children, daughters Bailey and Jada and sons, Garrison and Greydon".
