Report: Broncos part ways with secondary coach

According to a number of reports, the Boise State football program released secondary coach Julius Brown Monday.

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.

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.
