What Are Mountain West Coaches Saying Anonymously
Some of these are straight fire.
Mountain West coaching staffs speak freely about other teams.
Most of what is said from a college football staff is usually bland or a whole bunch of coach speak as to not give opposing teams bulletin board material or make others upset.
Well, the good folks at Athlon Sports promised anonymity to coaches in order to get their real takes on each of the Mountain West teams. There is no attribution outside these quotes come from Mountain West coaching staffs, meaning these quotes do not necessarily come from the head coach themselves.
Some of these quotes are still coach speak and sort of boring but there are also a few that are extremely blunt. We decided to breakdown some of these into categories.
