According to Thayer Evans of Sports Illustrated, the Boise State Football program has hired their new second coach, Ashley Ambrose from the coaching staff at Texas State.
The report comes shortly after defensive backs coach Julius Brown was let go 9 days ago.
The New Orleans native, Ambrose coached the defensive backs at Texas State this past season, and was in Moscow, Idaho coaching the same position for one season in 2014.
Texas St. CBs coach Ashley Ambrose is new secondary coach for Boise State coach Bryan Harsin per sources.

Ambrose has quite the football history, playing 13 seasons in the NFL with the Colts, Bengals, and Saints. After his playing career was over, he made the transition to coaching at the collegiate level.
In 2008, he joined former Boise State coach Dan Hawkins at Colorado where he was a defensive technical intern before coaching the receivers in 2009 and cornerbacks in 2010.
He then took his talents to Berkeley to compete in the Pac-12, where he coached as Cal’s secondary coach from 2011 to 2012.
Many thought former Boise State safety Gerald Alexander was due to take over Brown’s position, but it looks like Ambrose is the man for this job.
