Boise State's new Director of Athletics, Jeramiah Dickey wasted no time in hiring a head football coach for the Broncos! The announcement that came over the weekend named Andy Avalos the newest member of the BSU family. Avalos is a former Bronco student-athlete and was the assistant coach and defensive coordinator. He now is signed on a four year deal, and an expensive deal at that.

According to KTVB Avalos will make a base salary of $1.4 million in year one. Beginning in year two, he will receive an annual raise of $75,000. He will also have performance-based incentives or bonuses, not exceeding $200,000 annually. The college will also provide Avalos with a vehicle, moving expenses, and complimentary tickets to other Bronco athletic sporting events. Now that's a pretty sweet job contract. The next question is how he will bulk up the team under him. He has been granted a $2.1 million annual budget to hire 10 on field assistant coaches with a possible increase in the second year.

I cant wait to see what this next year brings on many, many levels but what I am looking forward to most is live sporting events and concerts again. The Broncos have had a lot of changes and setbacks this year but like many, seem to be coming back stronger than ever! Between Dickey, Avalos and all of the great talent they are continuing to hire the the Treasure Valley, Idaho and Boise State fans everywhere are in for a treat. Go Broncos!
