BYU agree with Kalani Sitake to become next head coach

— -- Oregon State defensive coordinator Kalani Sitake has agreed to a deal to become BYU's next head coach, sources confirmed to ESPN's Joe Schad and Adam Rittenberg.

Sitake, 40, played four years at BYU as a fullback and graduated in 2000. He spent the past year as Oregon State's defensive coordinator after serving as an assistant at Utah from 2005 to 2014.

Oregon State struggled defensively this season under Sitake, ranking 116th out of 128 FBS teams in total defense.

BYU athletic director Tom Holmoe told ESPN on Saturday that the school is negotiating with the coach it's targeted to be Bronco Mendenhall's replacement, but that a deal is not done.

Mendenhall was hired earlier this month by Virginia after spending the past 11 years at BYU.

The Cougars lost in the Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl to No. 22 Utah State on Saturday, 35-28.
