Boise State is getting ever closer to having a full-fledged football staff. Former Utah State co-defensive coordinator Stacy Collins was hired to run special teams for the Broncos and work with the edge rushers on defense.
Collins spent the last five seasons at Utah State, and joins the Broncos along with fellow Aggie Frank Maile. Collins has coached running backs, linebackers, defensive backs, and special teams in recent years. The 45-year old ball coach also has head coaching experience at Division II South Dakota School of Mines.
Andy Avalos has compiled a relatively young staff. The addition of Collins adds some welcome experience. Collins has 23 years of coaching experience having coached at schools all around the Pacific Northwest over the past two decades.
The main role for Collins will be to run the special team’s unit. He has coached special teams at several schools in his career and has excelled at the job. Most recently he was awarded Mountain West Conference Special Teams Coordinator of the year in 2019. That season he coached All-Mountain West kicker Dominik Eberle and First Team All-Mountain West returner Savon Scarver.
Collins expressed his excitement about joining the Boise State program saying, “I’m extremely excited to be joining the Boise State staff and working with Coach Avalos. The tradition of Boise State football, the success they’ve had both on and off the field, make this a destination job in college football.”
On special teams he added, “There’s also a great tradition here with the special teams play, and I’m looking forward to continuing that tradition…”
Boise State’s staff is nearly complete. The addition of Stacey Collins bring life, coaching, and particularly special teams experience to a young and exciting staff.
