Bryan Harsin heading back to Boise State

Bryan HarsinIt is being reported that Bryan Harsin, who was an assistant in Boise from 2001-2010 was hired by Boise State to be the head coach today.  This is in the wake of Chris Peterson leaving the Broncos last week after 8 seasons to take over at the University of Washington.  Harsin spent the 2011-12 seasons in Austin as the co-offensive coordinator for the Longhorns and was rumored to be on the short list to the Texas job if Mack Brown is convinced to step down this week.  He went 7-5 at Arkansas State this season.

The coaching carosel is in full swirl.  Still “up in the air” (and we don’t think it’s that up in the air) is the status of Mack Brown in Austin.
