Names swirled around on who would be Brown’s replacement. Maybe Gabe Franklin, or Wes Nurse were some names that came to mind.
According to Football Scoop, former Boise State safety Gerald Alexander is returning to his alma mater to take over Brown’s duties.

Alexander played at Boise State from 2003 to 2007 and was a key defensive player in his time as a player. Many fans will remember his many big hits and plays on defense that he made at Boise State.
After being drafted in the 2nd Round of the 2007 draft by the Detroit Lions, he made a few more stops in the NFL before retiring in 2012.
The last two years Alexander has been with Chris Petersen and the University of Washington as a graduate assistant. Last month he took a job with Montana State, but the former Bronco has supposedly found his way back to The Blue.
