After the Broncos cruised to victory in the Poinsettia bowl over Northern Illinois to finish the year 9-4 a lot has changed. For the upcoming season Boise State will have new coordinators on both offense and defense.
Andy Avalos will be the new defensive coordinator and says he is excited to get the ball rolling. The Broncos will be without defensive end Kamalei Correa who decided to forgo his senior year and enter the NFL draft.

NFL’s college advisory committee gave Correa a second round grade despite slipping from first team all Mountain West in 2014 to second team this past season. He finished his career as the defensive MVP of the Poinsettia Bowl with four tackles, two sacks, 2.5 tackles for loss and a forced fumble. New defensive coordinator Andy Avalos said on friday that Correa is ready.

"It's been his dream along with a lot of these guys. We say all along let's focus if we are going to ask our players to do things we need to do them ourselves. He has been a great football player here for us. When he submitted his papers the NFL said that he could come out definitely. If he chooses to do that i think it averaged out to be a second round rate.” said, Defensive Coordinator Andy Avalos.
