BSU’s Harsin headed to Idaho Falls

The Boise State football assistant coaches hit all 130 of the state’s high schools as part of the Bronco Blitz in April, but because of NCAA rules head coach Bryan Harsin couldn’t take part.

Now it’s Harsin’s turn to hit the road.

The Broncos’ first year coach, who replaced Chris

Petersen following the 2013 season, is traveling to various spots across the state over a six-day stretch, including a trip to Idaho

Falls on Wednesday and Thursday.

Harsin’s journey began with stops in the Boise area last week, then will move to Twin Falls on Tuesday and Wednesday and then on to Idaho Falls.

The first stop in I.F. will be a public meet and greet from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at McCowin Park in Ammon. Harsin will be joined by players, cheerleaders and the school’s mascot, Buster. Photo and autograph opportunities will be available.

Harsin will be the featured speaker at the Idaho Falls Chamber of Commerce luncheon from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday at the Willard Arts Center. For information on attending the luncheon, call the I.F. Chamber of Commerce at 523-1010.

Harsin, a graduate of Capital High School in Boise and Boise State, was a member of the Broncos’ staff from 2001 to 2010. He then served as the offensive coordinator at Texas in 2011 and 2012 and was the head coach at Arkansas State in 2013.
