Koetter will return to Boise State on a one-year contract, according to Pete Thamel of ESPN.

In 2022 under Koetter’s guidance — he took over upon Tim Plough’s firing after four games — the Broncos scored more than 20 points in eight games. It culminated in a Frisco Bowl victory during which Boise State won 35-32 over North Texas.

Koetter will have plenty of talent to coach around. Former USC quarterback and five-star recruit Malachi Nelson announced his transfer to the Broncos in January, and he’ll give Boise State an athletic option and more at gunslinger.

Koetter also has previous coaching experience in the NFL where he served as offensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2007-11, Atlanta Falcons from 2012-14, Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2015 and later head coach from 2016-18, and again with the Falcons from 2019-20.

Koetter’s previous college coaching experience first came as offensive coordinator at San Francisco State in 1985. Along the way he’s made stops as offensive coordinator at UTEP, Missouri, Boston College and Oregon, and Koetter also was head coach at Arizona State from 2001-06.
