Dirk Koetter is again joining the coaching staff at Boise State, this time as offensive coordinator under first-year coach Spencer Danielson, according to multiple reports Tuesday.

Koetter coached the Broncos from 1998-2000 and returned to serve as an offensive analyst and interim OC in 2022.

In his first stint with the Broncos, he finished with a 26-10 record and led the team to two Humanitarian Bowl wins (1999, 2000).

In his second stint, after stepping in to call plays for then-head coach Andy Avalos in 2022, the Broncos won eight of the last 10 games to reach the Mountain West Conference title game and earned a 35-32 win over North Texas in the Frisco Bowl.

In between his times in Boise, Koetter coached Arizona State for six seasons (2001-06) and spent time as OC for the Jacksonville Jaguars (2007-11), Atlanta Falcons (2012-14, 2019-20) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2015). He served as head coach of the Bucs from 2016-18, posting a 19-29 record.

Koetter replaces Bush Hamdan, who left to be the offensive coordinator at Kentucky.

Spring practice at Boise State begins March 11.
