AP source: Boise State hires Bryan Harsin as coach

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Boise State has hired Arkansas State's Bryan Harsin as its next coach.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the move had not become official.

Harsin will replace Chris Petersen, who left Boise State for Washington last week.

For Harsin, accepting the job marks a return to his roots. The 37-year-old Harsin grew up in Boise and played football at a local high school before enrolling in Boise State, where he played quarterback.

Harsin worked at Boise State from 2001-2010 and became offensive coordinator for the Broncos in 2006, Petersen's first year as head coach. Harsin remained the offensive coordinator until 2010 when he left for the same job at Texas.

Last season was his first as Arkansas State head coach, leading the Red Wolves to a 7-5 record. Harsin is also the third straight coach to leave the school after one year, following a trend set by Hughes Freeze and Gus Malzahn.

It was during his run as offensive coordinator at Boise State that the team put together its most impressive string of victories and emerged as a BCS contender.

Harsin oversaw and offense led on the field by quarterback Kellen Moore, who won 50 games as a starter to become college football's winningest quarterback. During his five years as offensive coordinator, the Broncos put together a 61-5 record, won two BCS bowls and won at least 12 games in four seasons.

He should also be familiar with many of the Broncos upperclassmen, including junior quarterback Grant Hedrick, who was recruited by Harsin before leaving for Texas.
