Receivers coach Guy Holliday is entering his first season at BYU, with 20 years of coaching experience, and already has the heart of a Cougar.
“I’m a Cougar, and I’m not going to let you disrespect what’s happened here in the past or the future,” Holliday said of critics. “You’re not going to sit here and walk over us, and that’s the bottom line.”
As a newcomer to Provo, he is pleased with what he has seen so far.
“I’ve had a chance to work at a lot of places, but I think the main difference I’ve seen here is that, obviously you have a little more mature players and just the whole value system,” Holliday said. “Things you don’t have to worry about managing are a pleasure to be around.”
Holliday has high expectations for his players, and he will not accept anything less.
“Demand it,” Holliday said. “If they don’t do what you want, they don’t play… So you just demand it.”
