PROVO, Utah – The first family of BYU football is gaining a new addition this summer.
Timberly Sitake, the wife of BYU head coach Kalani Sitake, announced on her social media feeds Friday that she is pregnant. The picture she shared featured an ultrasound image with a caption that read, “Plot twist. #comingthissummer”

This will be the fourth child in the Sitake family. They have two daughters in Skye and Sadie and one son, Kelaokalani (same name as Kalani), who they refer to as “KK.” Kalani and Timberly are approaching their 20th year of marriage together this spring.
Throughout their marriage, Kalani has been a college football coach where he began as defensive backs and special teams coach at Eastern Arizona in 2001. Then moves positions at Southern Utah, a decade at Utah, and a year at Oregon State before being tabbed as the 14th head coach in BYU football history.
Last month, Kalani Sitake signed an “unprecedented” contract extension that keeps him locked in as BYU’s head coach through the 2027 season. He’s been the head coach at BYU since 2016, posting a 48-29 record in that stretch, guiding the Cougars to a pair of back-to-back double-digit win seasons and rankings in the final College Football Playoff polls.
Sitake will have the task of leading BYU football into a new era as a member of the Big 12 Conference, beginning in 2023.
