You don't announce to the world that you want to extend a coach that
hasn't produced the greatest results and is actually worried about NOT getting an extension. Now Kalani can approach the negotiation knowing that BYU wants the extension and it has been divulged to the entire team and the rest of the world.
Holmoe just lost a ton of leverage for any conditions or financial concerns he wanted to impose in the negotiation.
Now the whole B12 stuff makes absolute sense to me.
