According to a Sports Illustrated report by Thayer Evans, Julius Brown has been let go by the Broncos. While the Boise State secondary featured veteran players in Darian Thompson and Donte Deayon, the secondary struggled with allowing chunks of pass plays, averaging 210 yards a game, 45th in the NCAA.
In the same report, and also reported by footballscoop.com, sources are saying that Gerald Alexander will take Brown's recently vacated position.
Alexander did agree to join the staff at Jeff Choate's Montana State program. But, as with all things in the coaching world, movement and shuffles are always bound to happen. Boise State fans may remember Alexander's move to become a graduate assistant at Boise State when Harsin was hired, but then made the move to the University of Washington.
Before agreeing to go to Montana State, Alexander was the defensive backs coach at Indiana State. If true, to join the Broncos, hopefully Alexander can make an impact both on, and off, the field. A charismatic coach Alexander will be a boon to recruiting.
Just hopefully he has better success at defending the triple option.
