Pac-12: Arizona's Rodriguez endorses BYU's Anae

Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez had no prior association with offensive line coach Robert Anae when took the Wildcats' job in December 2011. Yet he decided to retain Anae from the previous staff and was glad he did. Anae since has returned to BYU as offensive coordinator, the position he held from 2005-10 before spending two seasons at Arizona.

Rodriguez liked the chemistry of his offensive staff last season. "Robert fit right in with the rest of the guys," he said during the Pac-12 media teleconference, wrapping up spring football.

Anae also succeeded in developing the Wildcats' linemen. "He was very patient with the young guys," Rodriguez said. "I needed that, because I don't have a lot of patience. He did a good job of really learning the system."

Anae has brought elements of that scheme to BYU. "Guys will be able to pick it up quickly," Rodriguez said. But "if he's going to change the tempo, it takes a little time for guys to get accustomed to that."

Rodriguez hired veteran coach Jim Michalczik , who most recently worked at California, to replace Anae. The Wildcats will host Utah on Oct. 19.
