Boise State reportedly has hired a new head football coach today.
The Idaho Press, BJ Rains reports today, Boise State has hired Andy Avelos. Boise State has not confirmed the hire at the time of this report.
Sources told the Idaho Press and BlueTurfSports.com Friday that Avalos, who spent the past two seasons as the defensive coordinator at Oregon, is expected to be named Boise State’s next head coach.
Bryan Harsin left for Auburn on Dec. 22nd, leaving the Broncos without a coach for the first time since Chris Petersen left for Washington in December 2013.
Avalos played for the Broncos from 2001 to 2004 and was one of the top linebackers in program history. He led the Broncos in tackles three years in a row and still ranks No. 4 on Boise State’s career tackles list with 365. He was a first-team All-WAC selection in 2003 and 2004.
