“We are pleased to announce a contract extension for Kalani,” Director of Athletics Tom Holmoe. We believe in him and the direction of the program. Together we are committed to creating a bright future for BYU football.”

Following the team’s 42-10 win over the Idaho State Bengals on Nov. 16, Holmoe hinted at an extension when he shared his thoughts with the program following the game.

With the win, the team also accepted a Bowl invitation to the SoFi Hawai’i Bowl.

“I truly appreciate the continued support that Tom Holmoe, President Worthen and the BYU administration have for our program,” said Sitake. “I love our players, coaches and fans and I’m excited about the future of BYU football.”

He has been the program’s head football coach since the 2016 season. As the team’s head coach, he has gone 26-23, including three Bowl game berths.

Sitake has had three winning records. Besides this year’s 6-4 record, the team went 7-6 and a win in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

In 2016, the team went 9-4 — his best record at the school. The team also won the Poinsettia Bowl.
