Hiring...stealing...same difference. It was reported this morning by footballscoop and has since been confirmed that Boise State appears to be in the process of hiring Zak Hill as their new QBs coach/OC. Hill spent the last 7 years at Eastern Washington, where players like Vernon Adams flourished under his tutelage as QBs coach and passing game coordinator. In December, new Hawaii coach Nick Rolovich hired Hill as the new OC for the Warriors, but now it appears that Hill's stint in Hawaii may be over just slightly after it began.

Prior to coaching, Hill was a record-setting QB at Central Washington.
We'll know more as the day progresses (hopefully), and we'll try to keep everyone well in the loop.
UPDATE: 3:00pm—Still no word from Boise State, but Hawaii officials are saying Hill is gone, so that would seem to indicate the smoke is a roaring fire.

UPDATE: Thursday, 9:00am—Boise State still hasn't accounced the hiring, but Hill's twitter account appears to confirm the news and suggest that he will split duties with...TBD. Many are thinking Harsin might just co-OC. Time will tell.
