Previous 15 Notes Next 15 Notes


  Boise State fired offensive coordinator Tim Plough on Saturday and replaced him with former college and NFL head coach Dirk Koetter for the rest of the season. Boise State head coach Andy Avalos announced the change after the Broncos were stunned in a 27-10 loss to UTEP on Friday night. Long known for its offensive ingenuity and scoring points, the Broncos (2-2) have struggled on that side of the ball, even in their two victories. Koetter has been working as an analyst for the Broncos. "This was a difficult decision, but I believe it is in the best interest of our program," Avalos said. "Our team goals are still in front of us and we are focused on working to accomplish them. Tim is a good football coach and I have no doubt he will continue to positively impact the young men he works with in the future." Koetter was Boise State's head coach from 1998-2000 and was 26-10 in his tenure with the Broncos.

His time at Boise State set the stage for the growth of the program that took place first under Dan Hawkins and then with Chris Petersen in charge. Koetter left Boise State for Arizona State where he was the head coach for six seasons and led the Sun Devils to four bowl appearances. Koetter went on to a long career in the NFL that included three seasons as the head coach in Tampa Bay where the Bucs went 19-29. He was also an offensive coordinator with Jacksonville, Atlanta twice and Tampa Bay. Plough joined Boise State in January 2021 from UC Davis where he had served as offensive coordinator and associate head coach. - AP College Football

  SEPT 19 MOUNTAIN WEST SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: JONAH DALMAS, BOISE STATE, Junior, Place-Kicker, Meridian, Idaho/Rocky Mountain HS,...Was a perfect three-for-three on field-goal attempts and three-for-free on PATs, scoring 12 points in Boise State's 30-7 victory over UT Martin...Tied a season long with a 48-yard field goal in the second quarter. - Mountain West Football

  George Holani accounted for 157 yards of offense and two touchdowns, Hank Bachmeier threw for a pair of scores, and Boise State defeated UT Martin 30-7 on Saturday. Boise State (2-1) used a smothering defense to prop up its sputtering offense, holding UT Martin to 152 yards of total offense. Offensively it was Holani who did it all for Boise State. He caught four passes for 47 yards and a score, while rushing for 110 yards and a TD. UT Martin (1-2), which entered the game ranked 18th in the latest FCS coaches poll, showed some fight early, exiting the first quarter tied at 7. But the Skyhawks gained only 86 yards after their first three drives. Bachmeier, who left the game after a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit in the fourth quarter on a roughing the passer penalty, was 18 of 25 for 204 yards. Dresser Winn threw for 104 yards and a touchdown for UT Martin. - Boise State/AP College Football

  TRACKING TOP DRAFT PROSPECTS - WEEK 2: 23. JL Skinner, rSr, SS, Boise State, 6-3, 220, 1,...We are still seeking clarification on why Skinner was inactive in Boise State's, 31-14, rebound win over New Mexico. It is a bit of a mystery that local media hasn't solved. FWIW, Kaonohi Kaniho and Alexander Teubner stepped up to fill the void. Previous week, No. 24: Skinner looked 100 percent after a spring car accident as he led Boise State with six tackles and an interception in a 34-17 loss at Oregon State. - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout

  Hank Bachmeier bounced back after he was benched a week earlier, throwing three touchdown passes to lead Boise State to a 31-14 victory over New Mexico on Friday night. Latrell Caples caught two of those scores for Boise State (1-1, 1-0 Mountain West). Ashton Jeanty and George Holani combined for 139 yards on 32 carries for the Broncos. The Boise State defense held the Lobos (1-1, 0-1) to 123 total yards, with more than half of that coming on Geordon Porter's 69-yard touchdown catch in the fourth quarter. Through three quarters, New Mexico had 48 total yards. The Broncos led 10-0 at halftime before scoring three touchdowns in the second half, including one on a blocked punt. New Mexico's other fourth-quarter score came on Christian Washington's 100-yard kickoff return. - Boise State/AP College Football

  TRACKING TOP DRAFT PROSPECTS - WEEK 1: 24. JL Skinner, rSr, SS, Boise State, 6-3, 220,...Skinner led Boise State with six tackles and an interception in a 34-17 loss at Oregon State. His exploits are overlooked not only because of the loss, but because most attention is on a brewing quarterback controversy after starter Hank Bachmeier was benched following two interceptions and the team announced open competition for that job this week. Against that background, nobody is chatting up the strong safety, regardless of how well he played. - Frank Cooney/NFL Draft Scout

  2022 PRESEASON JOHNNY UNITAS GOLDEN ARM AWARD WATCH LIST: Hank Bachmeier, Boise State,...Bachmeier enters his fourth year under center for the Broncos in 2022. The Murrieta, Calif., native, registered 3,079 yards passing and 20 touchdowns last season, completing 63 percent of his passes. He moved up Boise State's single-season lists for attempts (ninth, 401) and completions (10th, 252) and notched his 20th-career game with at least 200 yards passing, the seventh-most in program history. - Boise State Football

  Boise State has lost three players to the transfer portal in recent weeks, and a local player left the team. Redshirt freshman wide receiver Jalen Richmond was the latest player to announce he was transferring. He didn't appear in any games last season after joining the program as a three-star recruit from Chandler High School in Arizona. Former four-star recruit Casey Kline is also in the portal. He joined the Broncos in 2019 as an edge rusher but didn't see much playing time and moved to tight end in the spring. Offensive lineman Jacob Golden is also transferring after he was suspended from the team following a DUI arrest in June. - Idaho Statesman

  2022 PRESEASON WUERFFEL TROPHY (COMMUNITY SERVICE) WATCHLIST: John Ojukwu, Boise State, Sr., OL,...Ojukwu has been extremely active in the Boise State community outside of football. During his collegiate career, he visited local elementary schools and was a great role model to younger students. Ojukwu also participated in the football program's "Bronco vs. Bullying" anti-bullying campaign. - Boise State Football

  Boise State cornerback Markel Reed hasn't played football in 10 months, but he's back on the field this fall competing for a starting job. "It feels good be back out there with the guys and playing with my brothers," Reed told reporters on Tuesday. "This summer was a big stride for me. Getting back in August for camp was the goal." It's been a tough couple of years for Reed, a senior from Temple, Texas. A shoulder injury kept him out of spring practice in 2021, but he fought his way back and started four of the Broncos' first five games last season. Then a knee injury put him on the shelf.

Both injuries required surgery, and Reed said two operations in less than a year took a toll on him. "It was definitely hard dealing with mental issues and stuff like that," he said. "You deal with that with injuries, but you just have to push through. I'm glad to be where I am and to be going 100%." Reed was held out of spring practice this year as he rehabbed from the knee surgery. He said his teammates helped him get through the darkest days, especially edge rusher Demitri Washington, who was healthy for a full slate of spring practices for the first time in his career this year. "All my brothers helped me, encouraging me and throwing me the brotherly love I needed," Reed said. - Idaho Statesman

  Jackson Cravens, who sat out in 2019 after transferring from Utah, started 11 games for the Broncos last season. He posted a career-high 36 tackles, including a season-high nine stops in a win at Utah State. He also notched the second sack of his Boise State career against the Aggies. Cravens isn't as versatile as Scott Matlock, who can play all three positions on the Broncos' defensive line, but when Boise State wants to go big and clog the middle of the field, it's going to turn to Cravens. - Idaho Statesman

  Wyoming is expecting a down year this season, but they are looking forward to good play at quarterback. Senior Hank bachmeier is consistent and plays with poise. He is one of only five returning MW signal-callers that started the majority of their team's games last season. Bachmeier didn't put up as gaudy of numbers as Utah State's Logan Bonner or Fresno State's Jake Haener, who led top-15 passing attacks last season, but his third year as a starter was plenty productive. The former four-star recruit passed for 3,079 yards and 20 touchdowns, while throwing eight interceptions and posting a 62.8% completion percentage. - Wyoming Tribune Eagle

Noa, a two-year student-athlete at Utah State, is united with his brother Ezekiel, who is a sixth-year linebacker for the Broncos. Last season, the younger Noa averaged 4.3 yards per carry and was second among Aggies with 597 yards rushing to go along with four touchdowns. He added 11 receptions for 85 yards. His first-career 100-yard game came Oct. 30 at Hawai'i when he rushed for 111 yards on 23 carries, including one score. - Lewiston Tribune

  2022 PRESEASON CHUCK BEDNARIK AWARD WATCH LIST: Scott Matlock, Boise State, Senior DT,...The Bednarik Award is presented annually to the College Defensive Player of the Year. Established in 1994, the award is named in honor of Chuck "Concrete Charlie" Bednarik who was an All-American at Pennsylvania and an All-Pro linebacker and center for the Philadelphia Eagles. A native of Homedale, Idaho, Matlock was selected to the 2022 Preseason All-Mountain West Team. He earned second-team all-conference accolades in 2021, registering a team-leading 8.5 tackles-for-loss and seven sacks. His 41 tackles (29 solo) led all Bronco defensive linemen last season. - Boise State Football

  2022 PRESEASON PAUL HORNUNG AWARD WATCH LIST: Stefan Cobbs, Boise State,...Cobbs was tabbed to the Paul Hornung Award Honor Roll in 2021, following his historic performance against UTEP (Sept. 10). The Fort Worth, Texas native, returned a punt 81 yards for a touchdown, tying former Bronco and current Atlanta Falcon Avery Williams for the sixth-longest return in school history. He added a 61-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter, becoming the first Bronco since John Hightower (2018 vs. Connecticut) to have two 50-plus yard touchdowns in the same game. Cobbs finished second among Boise State receivers in yards receiving (421) and touchdowns (five) and tied for second in receptions (34) last season. - Boise State Football
