BYU adds pair of offensive assistants

As programs across the country continue the process of replenishing assistants lost through various forms of attrition, BYU is the latest to further solidify its coaching staff ahead of the start of spring practice.

Head coach Bronco Mendenhall announced Friday that he has added Guy Holliday and Jason Beck to his offensive staff. The former will coach wide receivers, the latter quarterbacks.

“I’m excited to have Guy and Jason join our coaching staff,” Mendenhall said. “Guy is an experienced wide receivers coach who promotes tough and physical football and has great relationships with his players. He excels in the role of mentoring young people. Jason is an intelligent, poised coach who understands quarterback play and is a great teacher of young men. He is extremely passionate about our football program and the mission of the university. We are fortunate to have both of them at BYU.”

Holliday is easily the most experienced of the two, spending the past 22 years at the collegiate level. In addition to the past five seasons at UTEP, Holliday’s résumé includes a five-year stint as receivers coach at Mississippi State from 2002-06.

Beck, a former Cougars quarterback, comes back to his collegiate home after a one-year stop at a Canadian college. Prior to that, he spent three seasons as the QBs coach at Weber State and one year as an offensive intern at LSU.
