I have said earlier that if the next OC hire was a hard-nosed, tough coach, there was a very good chance he could end up as the HC in a year or two. Hopefully, Kalani will learn and grow from Grimes' experience and knowledge of big time football and become a successful head coach in his own right.

Of course, Grimes would have to do some soul searching and be converted to the Gospel to become THE Head Coach at BYU.

I'd take Grimes as HC over Kalani right now if we could. Grimes comes from a winning program.

Grimes is not a mormon and could never be HC at BYU unless he gets baptized and gets his temple recommend before they fire Kalani.

We could hope he becomes the defacto HC by running everything and letting KS shake hands and talk to recruits.

Essentially making Kalani the Head Hugger and Fan Manager. I like it.

Steve Cleveland was right ... and brave ... and insightful.

As much as I like the hire of Grimes, I'm skeptical of Grimes having success with a coach like Kalani at the helm. Kalani comes from subpar, losing programs. Kalani wouldn't know what it takes to win if it came up to him and slapped him the face.
I'm not this down on Kalani ... but who else changes will tell us a lot about how much authority Kalani gave him. If the culture doesn't change Grimes (and the rest of the staff) won't have much time left at BYU.
