Chow leaves BYU for job at North Carolina State
Deseret News 31Jan00 S2
By Jeff Call: Deseret News sports writer

PROVO, UTAH -- Long-time BYU assistant coach and offensive coordinator Norm Chow has decided to leave the Cougars for the same position at North Carolina State University. Chow has been BYU's assistant head coach and offensive coordinator since 1985. "Norm has made an outstanding contribution to the success of our program over the years," said BYU coach LaVell Edwards. "Norm is an extremely bright, hard-working and innovative football coach. He will definitely be a tremendous asset to the North Carolina State."

As BYU's offensive coordinator, Chow coached BYU quarterback stars Ty Detmer, Jim McMahon and Steve Young. He was decorated with the 1996 American Football Quarterly Division I Offensive Coordinator of the Year and the 1993 Athlon National Assistant Coach of the Year.

Chow has been the target of the ire of BYU fans for the Cougar's rocky performance in recent years, especially this year after BYU lost its last three games of the regular season. "As long as you are a decision maker you're going to be on the hot seat," Chow told KSL radio Monday. But Chow says he was never told to leave, instead he is simply taking an offer at NC State.

Speculation on a replacement for Chow has immediately centered on Alabama quarterbacks coach Charlie Stubbs, an LDS Church member who coincidentally will be in Provo this week to see his son Jay (who plays receiver for Alabama) off at the Mission Training Center. Stubbs told the Deseret News that he will meet BYU Coach LaVell Edwards while he is in Provo, but wouldn't say if the meeting is a job interview, "I haven't spoken to LaVell about it. I don't know if that's part of the plan." Stubbs says he has received quite a few coaching offers after Alabama's 10-3 season this past year, but "None of them felt right for me or my family."
