Reports: Boise State Brass Heading to Eugene for Meeting with Ducks DC Avalos

A couple reports place Boise State officials in Bozeman, MT and then Eugene.

Rains, a Boise State beat writer for the Idaho Press, also reports BSU held “virtual interviews” with candidates on Tuesday.

Bozeman Daily Chronicle’s Sports Editor Colton Pool tweeted a photo of new Boise State athletic director Jeremiah Dickey in Bozeman to reportedly meet with Montana State head coach Jeff Choate.

Choate is a former BSU assistant, who has led the Bobcats since 2016. seemingly confirms the plane (same info from Rains photo at the top) landed in Eugene at 12:34 p.m. PT.

Andy Avalos spent his playing career at Boise State from 2001-05, and then he coached the Broncos from 2012-18 in several capacities.

From 2012-13 he was the DL coach, then 2014-15 he was the linebackers coach. Finally, he was promoted to defensive coordinator and LB coach from 2016-18 before taking the Oregon DC job in 2019.

Avalos is an obvious candidate to replace Brian Harsin, who just left Boise State to coach Auburn last month.
