BYU to hire Jeff Grimes as offensive coordinator

"I'm pleased to announce Jeff Grimes as the offensive coordinator at BYU", Cougar head coach Kalani Sitake said in the official press release. The Times-Picayune that Grimes is planning on staying with the Tigers through the Citrus Bowl against Notre Dame while new offensive line coach James Cregg will stay with the Los Angeles Chargers through the remainder of the National Football League season.

Grimes coached the Cougar offensive line from 2004 to 2006.

"Detmer and all coaches remain under contract on the staff", said a news release at the time. He coached offensive lines at Boise State, Arizona State, Colorado, Auburn and Virginia Tech before joining LSU in 2014. "BYU will immediately begin a search for a new offensive coordinator".

Grimes has never been an offensive coordinator at the collegiate level. It is still unknown if Detmer will have a role within the Cougar's offense for the 2018 season. In 2009, the Tigers set several school offensive records, including points in a season (433) and total yards of offense in a season (5,613).

His best season as run game coordinator came in 2001, when the pass-heavy Sun Devils averaged 167.1 rushing yards per game, 45th nationally.
