Ty Detmer 'knows what I'm getting into' as BYU's new offensive coordinator

BYU fans heard from new offensive coordinator Ty Detmer for the first time in a while on Tuesday, and he revealed a few interesting tidbits of information.

First, Detmer will serve as the team's quarterbacks coach as well as offensive coordinator, which seems fitting given his pedigree of playing quarterback at BYU.

"With my age, I'm feeling like, if you're ever going to do it, now's the time," Detmer, 48, said Tuesday. "Things fell into place and I felt really comfortable with coach Sitake and everybody that's coming on board. You pray about it and you get those answers. I felt like it was the time."

Ultimately, the itch to return to his alma mater was just too much to pass up.

"I wouldn't be here if I wasn't. I know what I'm getting into," said Detmer, who explained that his family will remain in Texas until July, when his wife and children will move to Provo. "I'm prepared to do whatever I need to do to see things continue to be successful here … I made the commitment to come here and be the best coach I can be. With that, you give up other things that are maybe aren't as important at this time."
