On the same day that the Boise St. Broncos lost offensive coordinator Brent Pease to the Florida Gators, it appears that that head coach Chris Petersen will be down another coach as well. Special teams coach Jeff Choate will move over to Mike Leach's Washington St. Cougars staff, according to the Idaho Satesman's Chadd Cripe.
Choate will likely assume a different position over in Pullman since Eric Russell has reportedly taken over the special teams coach position after he left the Tennessee Volunteers. Cripe believes Choate could be the linebackers coach, a position Choate also coached for the Broncos.
Petersen has just three coaches on his staff who remain from when he took over the Broncos in 2006. Replacements for both positions have not yet been announced.
