Spencer Danielson Head Coach Of Bronco state Football Just Announced his Departure

 

BOISE, Idaho — Director of athletics Jeramiah Dickey announced on Sunday that Spencer Danielson has been chosen head coach of the Boise State football team. The appointment is pending approval from the Idaho State Board of Education. In the four years that Boise State has been as a four-year university, Danielson becomes the 12th head coach.

“I am excited to announce Spencer Danielson as the next head coach of Boise State football,” stated Dickey. “I prefer the process to the outcome. Even though winning the previous three games and winning the conference title was thrilling, I found hearing Spencer’s plans for the future and his full-time approach to head coaching to be more exciting than any of the excitement around the hiring process. In order to make the greatest choice for our student-athletes and Bronco Nation, I am appreciative of the efforts made by our search committee. Spencer is a rising star in the coaching world, a man of great substance, and an outstanding leader who I have no doubt will take Boise State football to new heights.”

“Welcoming Spencer Danielson as our upcoming head football coach makes me very happy. His love and support for our student-athletes was evident from the moment I met him, and this is something that Bronco Nation as a whole has now witnessed. Boise State president Dr. Marlene Tromp stated, “This makes him an ideal leader and role model for our players, both on and off the field.” “Bronco football is a point of pride for our entire community, and Coach Danielson has the character and passion to impact the young men on our team and lead our program forward to great heights.”

“I am so honored and excited to be able to stay at home here at Boise State and to keep guiding these incredible young men,” Danielson stated. “To be leading this program and to be here in the Treasure Valley is a true blessing. My family and I now call this area home. Dr. Tromp and Jeramiah Dickey have my sincere gratitude for believing that I can lead the Broncos. We’re only getting started, but you can do incredible things when you play together and love each other.”

During the previous three games, Danielson was Boise State’s acting head coach. He led the Broncos to three victories, one of which came on Saturday at UNLV in the 2023 Mountain West Football Championship Game. In the history of the FBS, he is the only interim head coach to guide his club to a conference championship game victory.

The Broncos outscored opponents 116-49 while averaging 38.7 points and over 460 yards of total offense in all three games. Bose State defeated UNLV 44–20 on Saturday to earn its fifth MW Championship, more than any other school in the league.

After that game, Taylen Green was declared the Offensive MVP and Alexander Teubner the Defensive MVP. In a conference championship game, Green set school records with 316 total yards and an 80% completion percentage. Teubner recovered a fumble and led the team with 10 total tackles, one of which was for a loss.

The 2023 Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year, sophomore Ashton Jeanty, racked up 153 yards on the ground with a touchdown in the conference championship game, marking his eighth 100-yard running game of the year.

Danielson has worked as Boise State’s defensive coordinator for the last three seasons, having served as the position’s co-defensive coordinator for the first two. In 2017, he started working as a graduate assistant at Boise State, and in 2018, he was elevated to assistant coach full-time. Boise State finished in the top three of the Mountain West in scoring defense throughout his three seasons as defensive coordinator, including 2021 when the team allowed a league-low 19 points per game.

With nine straight games after the MW Championship Game, Ahmed Hassanein’s defense, which leads the nation in sacks this season, has been credited with a sack—the longest current stretch in the country. James Ferguson-Reynolds, a sophomore, is one of just three punters in the NCAA with numerous punts of more than 70 yards, and he leads the country in punting by almost two yards per punt. If his season ended today, his current average of 49.6 yards per punt would rank sixth all-time in NCAA history.
