BYU fires offensive coordinator Ty Detmer

BYU on Monday fired offensive coordinator Ty Detmer, who was a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for the Cougars.

Detmer just completed his second season with BYU, his first college coaching position after coaching at a Texas high school. BYU finished 4-9 and scored only 221 points, failing to eclipse 20 points in nine contests.

BYU said in a statement that Detmer and all coaches remain under contract and that the new offensive coordinator will make decisions about the offensive staff.

However, a source tells ESPN it's unlikely that Demter would remain with the program in a different role.

Detmer won the 1990 Heisman Trophy before beginning a 14-year NFL career with six teams. He was a two-time All-American for the Cougars.
