This morning, several outlets have reported that Hank Bachmeier will choose to transfer from Boise State with two years of eligibility remaining. BJ Rains broke the news first.
This development comes two days after the recent announcement that Boise State’s offensive coordinator, Tim Plough, had involuntarily parted ways with the school.
Hank started his college career with bang. He came in as one of the top-two recruits in program history and immediately notched a signature win at Florida State, throwing for 407 yards on the Seminoles and dodging the path of a literal hurricane in the process of a quick business trip into and back out of Tallahassee. This earned him the nickname “Hurricane Hank”.
Hank was only able to play in about seven and a half games that year, however, as he sustained an injury vs Hawaii that kept him out until the bowl game. In the games he did play in 2019, Boise State’s last Mountain West Championship season, he only lost one—the Vegas Bowl vs Chris Petersen’s Washington Huskies, in his final game as a coach.
The rest of the way, Bachmeier compiled a record of 20-9 as a starter. He’ll leave Boise State with 6,605 passing yards, 41 TDs, and 19 INTs. His rushing total of 8 career yards was obviously skewed by being sacked 57 times, but he did add another 3 scores on the ground over four years. His overall completion percentage was 63.2%.
More details will come as they develop, but in the meantime, we wish Hank all the best of luck in the future.
It appears Taylen Green will likely be the next man up at the QB position, so we’ll see you all at Albertson’s Stadium on Friday at 6 pm! Also, to be clear, from today until Taylen Green is no longer the QB, it is now appropriate to cheer for his success—loudly and enthusiastically!
