BYU offensive coordinator Ty Detmer has been relieved of his duties, head coach Kalani Sitake announced Monday morning.

By Tuesday morning, speculation was growing about who would replace him, as people picked apart the season.

Former football players Scott Mitchell and Jason Buck talked about it on their podcast, Rivals, saying in the end, it was a hard task for Detmer and he is not to blame for the entire losing season.

This article mentions some of the possible replacements for Detmer, including Aaron Roderick, who was a former teammate of Sitake at BYU and co-worker at Utah; former Oregon State offensive coordinator Kevin McGiven, an Orem native who also spent time at Utah State, Weber State and Southern Utah; Weber State offensive coordinator Fesi Sitake, Kalani’s brother; Oklahoma receivers coach Dennis Simmons, a former BYU player; and Snow College head coach Paul Peterson.
