College football coaching turnover usually doesn’t happen until the end of the season. Well, that got started a little earlier at Boise State on Saturday.

Boise State announced that offensive coordinator Tim Plough has been fired.

“This was a difficult decision, but I believe it is in the best interest of our program,” Avalos said. “Our team goals are still in front of us and we are focused on working to accomplish them. Tim is a good football coach and I have no doubt he will continue to positively impact the young men he works with in the future.”

Boise State lost to UTEP Friday night 27-10. The Broncos only gained 177 total yards, including 84 rushing yards, against now-2-3 Miners.

During the first half of Friday’s game, Boise State huddled and played ball control. In the second half, however, they went no-huddle.

It’s wild how far Boise State has fallen from its ranks of a football powerhouse since Chris Petersen left.

The Broncos are 2-2 on the season.
