The 2016 season was the third season for Fesi Sitake as an assistant coach with the Weber State football program. It was also his first season as the Offensive Coordinator. Sitake was named Offensive Coordinator in January 2016 after two seasons as a WSU’s passing game coordinator. He also coaches quarterbacks at Weber State.
In 2016, Sitake helped lead Weber State to a 7-5 record, a third-place finish in the Big Sky Conference and WSU’s first trip to the FCS Playoffs in seven years. Under Sitake’s guidance, WSU senior quarterback Jadrian Clark earned third team All-Big Sky honors, finished third in the conference in passing and had the fifth highest total offense in WSU history.
In 2014, his first year with the Wildcats, Sitake coached Shaydon Kehano to second team Big Sky All-Conference honors. In 2015, he helped the Wildcats to a 6-5 overall record and a 5-3 mark in Big Sky play, WSU’s first winning season in five years.
Sitake joined the Weber State staff in December 2013 after spending three seasons coaching at his alma mater, Southern Utah. He was a two-time Great West All-Conference performer for the Thunderbirds and finished his career as one of the top wide receivers in SUU history. As a senior in 2010, he had 877 receiving yards, the ninth most in Thunderbird history, and finished sixth in the nation in receptions per game. He also excelled as a return specialist and during his junior year finished seventh in the country in punt return average.
He began his coaching career in 2011 at SUU as a student assistant coach. He then coached the last two seasons as the wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator. He was part of the Southern Utah team that finished 8-5 in 2013 and advanced to the FCS Playoffs for the first time in school history.
