BYU Football: Ranking Opposing Coaches for 2014

6 of 13

8. Bryan Harsin, Boise State

Harsin returns to Boise State to replace his mentor Chris Petersen.  Harsin was an offensive coach on the Boise State teams that were dominant from 2002-2010.  Harsin left Boise to be the co-offensive coordinator at Texas in 2011.  Harsin became the head coach of the Arkansas State Red Wolves in 2013 and led them to a 7-5 record and a berth in the 2014 GoDaddy Bowl.  He left for Boise before the team played in the bowl.

Harsin has been a coach in many games against BYU and is undefeated against the Cougs.  Harsin most recently faced BYU in 2011, a game the Longhorns won 17-16.  Harsin was part of the offensive magic at Boise State and will look to bring that back to his team in 2014.

Signature Win: Georgia State, 2013 (With Arkansas State)

Although Georgia State was winless, Arkansas State struggled to put the Bulldogs away.  When the game went final, Arkansas State clinched at least a share of the Sun Belt championship.
