As with recruiting, coaching can be every bit as cutthroat a business. Just ask Temple who their new head coach is. But, they did make $6 million that way so who knows, maybe it was a planned thing.
In any case, the Broncos have two coaching spots to fill: D-line and cornerbacks. Well, they did anyway. Now it’s just to down D-line as Boise State has found their new cornerbacks coach:
Jalil Brown comes back to the Broncos after a brief stint with the NAU Lumberjacks. Brown was a strength & conditioning coach and defensive analyst for the Broncos before he went to NAU to serve as cornerbacks coach. While at NAU the passing defense did well for themselves, placing four players on either the first, second, or third team all-conference list.
The coaching carousel is very fluid even where the Broncos are concerned, seeing as how they hired offensive coordinator Zak Hill before he had fully unpacked at Hawaii.
The Brown hire was an even shorter turnaround as he was just announced by Utah State not two days ago.
C’est la vie.
Brown has the task of finding the replacement for an All-MWC performer, and fumble recovery-magnet, Tyler Horton. And it wouldn’t hurt if he would be able to make sure some more Broncos also make it on All-MWC lists as well.
Congratulations to Mr. Brown, and welcome back!
