This is the week coaches bump into one another at the convention in Dallas. It’s a time of rumors, reports of sitings, interviews, offers, counter offers and new hires.
It is no secret Bronco Mendenhall is reshuffling his cards on his offensive staff after elevating Brandon Doman to offensive coordinator while keeping his title as QB coach.
He is looking to increase energy and chemistry on staff.
Mendenhall will do the hiring of additional staff members but will certainly give Doman plenty of input as to who he will work with. In this regard, I’d bet Doman would look for a high energy guy like himself, an excellent recruiter, a person who he knows inside and out, and a guy who is loyal to him and would not ever stab him in the back.
One such guy might be Joe Dupaix, the son of the famous and highly successful Skyline coach Roger Dupaix, who coached Doman in high school. Joe Dupaix played at SUU and has been coaching with LDS coach Ken Niumatalolo at Navy, a program that is on the rise under the native of Hawaii.
There are rumors that Joe Dupaix might make a great inside receiver coach in BYU’s offense under Doman and could have already undergone interviews already with the powers that be and his candidacy could be pushed forward.
