3 Improvements BYU Needs to Make On Defense

BYU announced Wednesday morning the hiring of new Associate Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator Jay Hill, former Head Coach of Weber State.

It is a new era of BYU football. Not only are the headed to the Big 12 Conference next season, but they will do so with a defense that will be completely re-tooled with a new philosophy.

It’s safe to say that the defense cost BYU dearly in 2022. If the defense is even just average, they probably beat Arkansas, East Carolina, and maybe even Liberty and Notre Dame. The defense cost BYU a chance at three straight double digit-win seasons.
