The wait is over.

After Mike Prater of Idaho radio station KTIK first reported that Andy Avalos would hold a virtual press conference this evening, Boise State’s official Twitter account posted that Bronco alum Bush Hamdan would be leading the offense for the next two years.

What Does This Mean?

Reactions have bounced from jubilation to slight disappointment. It’s a solid hire considering Avalos stayed in the family. Statistically, Hamdan hasn’t had many explosive offenses throughout his coaching career, but he has been around the block despite his age.

Would I have loved someone like Ryan Dinwiddie or Mike Sanford?


Is this a bad hire?

Absolutely not.
