BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Moments after Bryan Harsin was announced as the new head football coach for Boise State. His family was even more excited to have him home.

Harsin walked on for the Broncos in the late 90's before becoming a tight ends coach, and eventually being the offensive coordinator in 2006 under coach Chris Petersen.

His father Dale Harsin said he hope his son will continue the roll BSU has been on over the last decade, but also notes there are other things to like about his return.

"Just have the family back and stuff, and not have to make the long trips to see the grandkids," said Dale.

Dale said he's proud of his sons success not only for becoming the head coach, but what he's done to get there.

He admits it still hasn't really sunk in just yet and probably won't until he sees Bryan on the sideline with his headphones on.
