    Fair. Wish he had stayed in that roll/capacity.

    This guy is emerging at the favorite. Dude has a 28-22 head coaching record at Montana State?

    If Graham Harrell can't beat out a guy with close to a .500 record that's sad.

    Marble mouth will probably show up in a hoodie hair all messed up and energy drink in his hand and start rambling on about wrestling in the interview and blow it.

    Hey Graham sell me this pen!!!

    Ohhh. Well let's see run to open grass?

    I think a Head Coach has to have a full understanding on both sides of the ball. Harrell is young and his experience lies with the offense. He would have to hire a defensive guy that he can entrust to run the defensive side of the ball. Although that is not uncommon these days, as long as Harrell lays out a plan of how he can do this he should be fine. I think he is better off looking at an OC role in the NFL. Unfortunately for us, Helton has no mastery on either side of the ball, and given his designated responsibilities in game management and discipline/penalties, he failed on those too!
    Fight On!

    It's highly possible that Chow's worst days of coaching are better than Harrell's best days...

    100% more complex no question. Compared to the 5 play run to open grass (pop warner) style playbook.

    That's the perfect hire for Boise State. Avalos isn't just a Bronco legend, but he is fantastic coach. Lucky them.

    If you're a USC fan or Kedon Slovis. This has to be the best News of the day.

    Avalos drew up 2 great game plans and stymied USC's offense especially Slovis he threw 6 picks in 2 games against his defense. If I was in the Slovis camp. I'd be sending a case of wine to the Avalos household right now. With a note: Congratulations on the promotion good riddance.

    Nobody beating down the door for Harrell. I was hoping this unimaginative play-caller was gone! Please hire an OC that knows how to utilize the running backs and can play the qb under center when one yard or less is needed for a first down. Get rid of this clown and his boss. I know I know pipe dream.

    Did Jim Mora already turn this one down?

    Chow has forgotten more x&o than Graham will ever know. He did take the OC of that local new pro league that had a shorten season. Lol

    It's not like I'm excited for Harrell to remain, but I don't get the desire for him to leave right now. I think it literally wouldn't matter as long as Helton is still HC. At least now there will familiarity with the offense, as bad as it is, and not having to learn a new system.

    I do not "know" anything, but I would think that would be Kellen Moore's job to lose if he wants it.
    Boise State royalty and I am sure as long as he is able to keep them competitive, he is going to continue to run that program.

    As far as OCGH, I am ALMOST to the point where I going to push for a new OC.
    To have the best passing attack in the PAC-12, but to have the worst running attack?
    There should be no reason why we would be dead last, even with a OL Coach who is not familiar with the Air Raid.

    Wait, you mean Helton is not "The Situational Master"? :)

    Helton certainly is a master, a master of his and conquest4ever81’s domain....
