Boise State Hires Bryan Harsin to replace Chris Petersen

Boise State’s coaching search has ended with a familiar name taking over for Chris Petersen. After one season at Arkansas State, Bryan Harsin has been hired by Boise State as its next head coach.

Harsin went 7-5 in his only season with the Red Wolves. However, he is a native of Boise and played as a quarterback with the Broncos from 1995-99.

Harsin also served on Boise State’s staff from 2001-10.

With Harsin’s departure, Arkansas State will have its fifth coach in five years in 2014.
