BYU adds Reedley native to football staff

Reedley native Geoff Martzen has been hired as BYU’s Football Player Personnel & On-Campus Recruiting Coordinator.

Martzen joins the Cougars’ staff after serving as a recruiting specialist at Boise State and Alabama. He assisted in the recruiting coordination of the 2012 high school and junior college class at Alabama that was rated No. 1 in the nation by Rivals.com.

“Geoff is young and energetic and has gained a great understanding of successful recruiting processes from his experiences at Alabama and Boise State,” BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall said. “We are always trying to get better, and I believe Geoff will help us do that. I’m looking forward to his contributions to our program.”

Martzen previously was an assistant coach for two years at Sunnyside High and for three years at Reedley High.

“I’m excited about this opportunity at BYU,” Martzen said. “I’m eager to get to work and build upon the great experiences I’ve had at Alabama and Boise State. I feel fortunate to be able to work with some of the nation’s top football programs, and I’m especially looking forward to working with the great young men that make up the BYU program.”
