The coaching carousel is heating up for Boise State football.  We reported last week that Julius Brown wouldn't be returning as the Broncos secondary coach and now offensive coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz is heading to Raleigh, North Carolina to become the Wolfpacks offensive coordinator.

It will be the second straight year that  Bryan Harsin will have to look for a new offensive coordinator.

Drinkwitz had spent the past two seasons on the blue. He coached tight ends during his first year and worked as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach this past season.  The Broncos averaged almost forty points a game and more than 500 yards of offense last season.  Boise State also ranked 15th nationally in both scoring and total offense.

Drinkwitz came from the coaching tree of Gus Malzahn, having served on his staff at the high school level as well as Auburn. Drinkwitz is joining a staff that is 18-20 in the past three years.

Head coach Bryan Harsin commented on Drinkwitz’s decision to move on from Boise State. “We would like to thank Coach Drinkwitz for his contributions to the success of the Boise State football the last two seasons, we wish him and his family nothing but the best going forward.”
