Boise State hires Bryan Harsin as head football coach

Boise State hired former player and offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin to be the Broncos’ next head coach. Athletic director Mark Coyle confirmed Wednesday he had lured Harsin back to Boise and away from Arkansas State, where Harsin served as head coach for one season. Harsin, 37, grew up in Boise and became a backup quarterback after walking on to the program in the late 1990s. He then worked as an assistant coach starting in 2001 and was elevated to offensive coordinator in 2006 by Chris Petersen, the man he will now replace. “We’re coming home,” Harsin said. “One of the hardest decisions we ever made was leaving Boise. We did that so I could become a better coach, so I could one day have the opportunity to return as head coach – that day has arrived.” –AP
