It’s going to be at least another full day or so. I haven’t heard a word at all. – Navy AD Chet Gladchuk

As of Monday night, Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo hadn’t decided whether to remain at Navy or take the BYU head coaching job, according to his agent, Evan Beard.

Niumatalolo spent Monday on campus and met with athletic director Tom Holmoe and other school officials. It is believed that he also met with LDS Church leaders.

“I suspect it will be a few days, but we shall see,” Beard told the Washington Post about Niumatalolo’s timetable for a decision. “It could happen in the next 10 minutes, but look, he’s not going to make a hurried decision.”

Meanwhile, BYU alum and Oregon State defensive coordinator Kalani Sitake, considered to be a rising star in coaching circles, is scheduled to interview with Holmoe Tuesday.

Sitake, a former Cougar running back, spent a decade at Utah as an assistant coach, including six years as the defensive coordinator. He left the Utes a year ago to join Gary Andersen's staff at Oregon State.

"In my opinion, if BYU wants Kalani, they will have to come get him and make it a special deal," Andersen told The Oregonian Monday night.

After Niumatalolo led Navy to a 21-17 victory last Saturday, he said, referring to the BYU job, “My heart says go. My head says stay. I tend to lead with my heart," according to the Washington Post.

As for the speculation that Niumatalolo is leaving Navy? “It’s premature,” Beard said.

Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuk told the Washington Post that Niumatalolo “was not going to make any decisions until he came back to Annapolis. So it’s going to be at least another full day or so. I haven’t heard a word at all.”
