Continuing on with our BYU coaches and players interviews, we were able to talk to offensive coordinator and former BYU quarterback Brandon Doman. Doman said he is constantly trying to learn and improve as a young coach.

"My former offensive coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers, Greg Knapp, he's now the ofensive coordinator for the Raiders. I loved him as a player and coach, he's been very successful and he's got a wealth of knowledge. I lean on him a lot ... I want to be mentored by the best. Sometimes you have to be a pest to get in with those guys and for them to eventually mentor you but I want to be around the very best of the best and learn from them and how they do it. I'm still a young guy, I've got a lot to learn."

He said the decision has already been made to have him calling plays from the press box as opposed to on the sidelines.

"I'm going to be in the press box, calling the game. We [the offensive coaching staff] are going to continue to improve the way we comunicate a little bit better. We have some things we need to change, develop and improve that way."

When asked how he would handle quarterback Riley Nelson or another player who may be frustrated or angry, Doman said he trusts his coaching staf to help out.

"Between Coach [Joe] DuPaix, who's played quarterback and Coach [Lance] Reynolds who has seen all the greats around here, if I need somebody to sit a guy down or calm someone down, those guys can do it."
