Former Bronco coach hired at Washington State

Rumors circulated last week about Boise State head coach Leon Rice interviewing for the same position at Washington State. BSU soon locked up Rice and WSU looked elsewhere.

The Cougars bring on a different Bronco, as an assistant coach.

Newly-hired head coach Ernie Kent announced today that former Boise State head coach Greg Graham will join his staff as an assistant.

Graham spent eight season as the Broncos head coach. He compiled a 142-112 record, from 2002-2009. His firing ushered in the hiring of Leon Rice.

Graham heads to Pullman from Bradley University, where he was an assistant coach. He spent one season as a head coach at Western New Mexico and previously served as an assistant at Oregon, New Mexico, San Jose State, San Diego State and Saint Mary's.
