The Boise State football team is making some noise in the off season. Sports Illustrated’s Thayer Evans is reporting that Boise State secondary coach Julius Brown has been let go.

For the 2015 football season Boise State allowed nine pass plays of 50 or more yards. This ties for the fourth most in the nation, However the Broncos struggled against the pass. They rank 45th nationally having given up an average of 210.1 yards per game.

Brown came from Bryan Harsin’s Arkansas State staff. He was originally made the defensive back coach but his role had been reduced to cornerbacks.

Brown was a graduate of Boise State and a member of the Broncos support staff from 2007 to 2011. He played for the Broncos from 2000 to 2003. This was his second season as a secondary coach.

Football Scoop is reporting that former Bronco Gerald Alexander will join Harsin’s staff and work with the defensive backs. Alexander had coached defensive backs at Indiana State this past year. Alexander recently agreed to join Jeff Choate’s staff at Montana State a few weeks back.
