Mountain West Football Media Days kick off in Las Vegas on Tuesday and 6 On Your Side is in Sin City covering them live.

Over the next two days we'll hear from Boise State Head Coach Bryan Harsin, members of the BSU team and coaches and players from across the Mountain West.

Boise State heads into the season with high expectations after an uncharacteristic four-loss  2015 season and they already have a number of players on preseason awards watch lists.

With the 2016 season on the horizon, a host of coaches in new positions will be leading the Broncos on the sidelines.

Coach Harsin will have a dual threat on the offensive side of the ball with Scott Huff and Zak Hill serving as co-offensive coordinators this fall.  The pair take over for former coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz who left for North Carolina State earlier this year.  Coach Harsin will also take on a bulk of the load on offense by calling plays this season.

On defense former linebackers coach Andy Avalos steps in as the new defensive coordinator replacing old DC Marcel Yates who is now at the University of Arizona.

Those new coordinators will have to hit the ground running if the Broncos want to get back to the Mountain West Championship Game after missing out last season.

On Tuesday Sports Director Dan Hawk will sit down with Coach Harsin, senior wide receiver Thomas Sperbeck and redshirt senior linebacker, Ben Weaver.  Interviews begin bright and early at 8:10 a.m.

We will also speak with Utah State, Air Force, and New Mexico.  All three teams beat Boise State a season ago.
