MSU’s Choate Looks To Be The Favorite For the Boise State Job
With the Montana State Bobcat football season about a month and a half away, there are questions on whether we might have our head coach form the past four years.
406 MT Sports is reporting that Montana State Bobcats head football coach Jeff Choate is slowly becoming the favorite to become the new head coach for the Boise State football job.
Choate, who used to be an assistant coach at Boise State under Chris Petersen, and Andy Avalos, the University of Oregon Ducks defensive coordinator and former Boise State linebacker, were the favorites after former Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore turned down the job to stay the offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys.
Choate though has gotten a lot of support of former players, coaches and is the choice for most of their alumni and that has made him the favorite for the job. Plus, Choate has had incredible success here in Bozeman. In the four years he has been the head coach, he has taken the Bobcats to a average team in the Big Sky to the FCS semifinals. The farthest the Bobcats had been since they won their national championship in 1984. Plus, he's undefeated against in state rival the University of Montana Grizzlies.
If Choate leaves then the favorite to take over the head coaching position is former Montana State All-American and current defensive coordinator Kane Ioane which would be perfect. Ioane has been with the Bobcats forever and is a favorite among players and would be an easy transition.
Here's the thing, this whole situation isn't easy for anyone because the Bobcats have their shortened season coming up soon and there are still questions on whether or not we will have our current head coach there. We will have to see what happens but hopefully everything gets resolved quickly.
