Former BYU offensive coordinator Robert Anae is joining the coaching staff of the Arizona Wildcats, but his son will not joining him.

Famika Anae, a BYU offensive tackle who redshirted in 2010 after suffering a spring ACL injury, wrote in an e-mail that he will be staying with the Cougars.

Anae was a freshman last season at BYU after completing his church mission.

He wrote that the family was excited for his dad’s move to Arizona but added, “(I) look to be back on the field this spring and competing for a starting spot at right or left tackle again, so I felt, as well as my family, that it would be better for me to stay and play my four years here at BYU!”

Robert Anae was an offensive lineman at BYU in the early 1980s.
