Harsin Hires Texas A&M Defensive Coordinator Marcel Yates

Marcel Yates, one of the most respected ex-Bronco players and coaches, is coming home!

Bryan Harsin, who took over for Chris Petersen at Boise State, has lured Texas A&M Defensive Coordinator Yates to take over the Bronco defense next year.  It's a major coup for Harsin.  Boise State's defense struggled mightily this past season, and Yates, who previously coached the Bronco secondary for nine seasons, is also a top-notch recruiter.

In Yates' previous tenure at Boise State from 2003-2011, Yates coached five future NFL players:  Gerlad Alexander (second round draft choice of Detroit in 2007), Orlando Scandrick, who is having a super year in Dallas this year, Kyle Wilson (first round draft pick of the Jets in 2010), Brandyn Thompson (7th round selection of Washington in 2011) and George Iloka (fifth round pick of Cincinnati in 2012).
