On Thursday afternoon Boise State announced the hiring of their new offensive line coach in Brad Bedell. The hire comes days after the former offensive line coach Scott Huff took his talent to coach under Chris Petersen.
Bedell has had coaching experience with coach Bryan Harsin previously at Arkansas State. He comes to Boise State with a great amount of experience dating back to his college days playing on the offensive line at Colorado.
As well as a six-year stint in the NFL.

Excerpt via BroncoSports.com:
“Having Brad on our staff at Arkansas State, knowing his coaching style and the physical ‘own the line of scrimmage’ mentality he brings to the offensive line, we are excited to add a coach of his caliber to our staff,” Harsin said. “Brad will have an immediate opportunity to be on the field, developing our guys and seeing how they compete and perform every day from the moment he arrives. No doubt he’ll be ready to hit the ground running with our offensive line.”
Bedell has had Boise State ties throughout the years, including some time with former Boise State coach Dan Hawkins at Colorado.
“I already have some of that blue blood running through me, as I’ve been indoctrinated into the Boise State culture from my time with Coach Harsin, and even back to Coach Hawkins, working with awesome Broncos and men like Coach Harsin, Andy Avalos, Lee Marks and Jeff Pitman,” Bedell said. “I want to thank Coach Harsin for this opportunity to be a Bronco, and to be part of an extremely special program that truly combines a great tradition of championship football with a constant push to develop young men as leaders through the game.
Boise State started spring ball on Monday March 6th.
