Boise State Loses Offensive Coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz

Once again, Boise State is back to the drawing board for an offensive coordinator.

This afternoon multiple sources announced that Eliah Drinkwitz is leaving Boise State to accept the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach position at North Carolina State.

Bryan Harsin later confirmed this announcement and sent a statement out thanking Drinkwitz for his services and wished him the best of luck in his new position.

North Carolina State also sent out an announcement on their website confirming this move.

“Eli is one of the bright and innovative offensive minds in our game, and I’m excited to have him join our staff,” said Doeren. “He comes from great pedigree having worked for Gus Malzahn at both Auburn and Arkansas State, while at Boise State he worked with Bryan Harsin (head coach) and Mike Sanford (former Stanford assistant and current Notre Dame OC). He has learned and been able to blend some of the most successful offensive styles in the game and he’ll bring an exciting style to NC State.”

According to Chad Crippe of the Idaho Statesman, with this move, Boise State will have its 6th offensive coordinator in the last 7 years going into the 2016.

Last year Drinkwitz replaced Mike Sanford when Sanford took the OC position at Notre Dame.

The search now begins again for Boise State to replace Drinkwitz to take over the offense. The biggest question is, who will they go for?

Stay tuned to Bronco Nation News for further updates on the coaching carousel.


About Tyler Bates

Some may know him as TB, but his full name is Tyler Bates to be formal. Tyler hails his childhood days just down the road from Boise in Twin Falls. Many Bronco fans may recall him as the "straw hat guy" as he wore it for much of his time during bball games leading The Corral student section at Boise State. Since then he has graduated with a degree in Social Sciences and still spends his football home game days on the field with the marketing crew. When he's not working his day job or talking about and watching sports, you'll find him either on a long run or bike ride, skiing, or playing soccer.
