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.
Title: Offensive Coordinator / Quarterbacks Coach
Year 1: $400,000
Year 2: $425,000
As a player, Hamdan played quarterback at Boise State from 2004-2008, but never started a game.
He did not play professionally.
2009: Colorado - Special Assistant
2010: Maryland - Offensive Quality Control
2011: Sacramento State (FCS) - Tight Ends
2012: Florida - Wide Receivers
2013: Arkansas State - Co-Offensive Coordinator / Quarterbacks
2014: Davidson (FCS) - Offensive Coordinator / Quarterbacks
2015: Washington - Offensive Quality Control
2016: Washington - Wide Receivers / Passing Game Coordinator
2017: Atlanta Falcons (NFL) - Quarterbacks
2018-2019: Washington - Offensive Coordinator / Quarterbacks
2020-2021: Missouri - Wide Receivers / Quarterbacks
2022: Missouri - Quarterbacks
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?
