College of the Canyons head football coach Garett Tujague has resigned his position at the college and accepted a position at Brigham Young University as an offensive line assistant coach, COC announced Tuesday.

Tujague spent six seasons as the head coach of the College of the Canyons football team, winning one conference championship, participating in five postseason bowls and going a combined 43-25 during his stint.

“It’s a great feeling to be home, very humbling,” Tujague told the Provo Daily Herald on Tuesday. “I am excited for this opportunity to be at BYU with these young men and be part of their mission in football and in life. I’d like to express my gratitude to the great people at College of the Canyons for preparing me for this step. I’m grateful for their guidance and for allowing me to be a head coach.”

Tujague took over the Cougars’ head coaching position after serving as an offensive line and assistant coach under former head coach Chuck Lyon, now the school’s athletic director.

“Garett has represented College of the Canyons with the utmost integrity and helped the Cougar football program become nationally recognized,” Lyon said in a press release. “BYU is getting an outstanding coach in Garett.”

Tujague heads back to BYU after playing on the offense line for the school from 1989-1991, earning all-conference honors and winning three Western Athletic Conference titles.

College of the Canyons has announced it will open a one-year interim head coaching position.
