Army head coach Jeff Monken has announced the addition of Saga Tuitele to the Black Knights' coaching staff. Tuitele will coach the offensive line. He also was on the Army staff for the 2007 and 2008 seasons.
"We are thrilled to welcome Saga Tuitele back to West Point," said Monken. "His wealth of experience and success with the triple option make him a great addition to our program. Saga is a tremendous technical coach and an outstanding motivator and leader."
"I am honored and excited to be back on the Hudson," said Tuitele. "I have a tremendous amount of respect for Coach Monken, his staff, and this program for what they have accomplished. I cannot wait to meet and work with the players and compete with this group every day."
Tuitele comes from The University of New Mexico, having served as the offensive line coach and run game coordinator. He previously was the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo where he led the Mustang offense to the top of the NCAA FCS charts in terms of points and yards.
During the 2019 campaign, his line was a strength of the Lobo squad. The line was the last in the FBS to allow a sack, and tackle Javon Mosely was selected for the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl in Pasadena. A pair of Lobos in Kyle Stapley and Teton Saltes were honorable mention All-Mountain West, and Saltes was a semifinalist for the Wuerffel Trophy. Read more.
