The Boise St. Broncos didn't look far to find its new offensive coordinator. Robert Prince, wide receivers coach, has now added offensive coordinator to his duties, reports Brian Murphy of the Idaho Statesman. Prince was first mentioned as Brent Pease's replacement last week when reports surfaced that Pease was heading to an SEC school, which turned out to be the Florida Gators.
Prince had been a coach for Boise State in 2001-2003 before he left for a variety of jobs in the NFL. He spent his last season in the NFL coaching wide receivers for the Seattle Seahawks in 2009, but Jim Mora and his entire coaching staff was let go after one year on the job. Prince then moved to the Colorado Buffaloes, coaching receivers there as well. It was his second stint working for coach Dan Hawkins, who previously coached at Boise State. Hawkins was fired in 2010 and Jon Embree brought in his own staff.
