BOISE, Idaho – Boise State offensive coordinator Tim Plough has been relieved of his duties, head coach Andy Avalos announced, Saturday.

“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.”

Avalos named Dirk Koetter to replace Plough for the remainder of the 2022 season effective immediately.

Koetter posted a 26-10 record as Boise State’s head coach from 1998-2000. He has been the offensive coordinator for five colleges and three NFL teams during his coaching career and was the head coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2016-18.
