BOISE, Idaho — The interim head coach from the Boise State football team has been announced after the news that Bryan Harsin is now the head coach of the Auburn Tigers. Spencer Danielson, the current co-defensive coordinator, will temporarily fill the position.

“I am incredibly humbled by this opportunity,” Danielson said. “Boise State has been a great place for a long time, and I want to make sure our current student-athletes and the student-athletes that are committed to us know that it will continue to be great. The best is still to come!”

Danielson has been on staff with Boise State the last three seasons, most recently working with the Broncos defensive line. He also worked with Boise State’s STUDs his first two seasons, overseeing the development of All-American Curtis Weaver, who set the Mountain West career sacks record before declaring early for the National Football League Draft.

“Coach Danielson is a strong leader on and off the field and is well-respected among our student-athletes, coaches, staff and administration,” said Bob Carney, interim athletic director. “He is prepared to step in and lead this program as we search for a permanent head coach."

A national search for the new head coach is underway.
