Conference: MW

Coach Stats

Why should this nominee be considered for the Broyles Award?
Spencer Danielson consistently talks about focus, next man up mentality and his love for his student-athletes. This season, we lost a starting CB in game one, have been missing a starting DE for the last three games and just played our first game without our other defensive end. Our best DT has missed one game and our starting MLB has missed two other games. 
Coach's Past Performance
Coach Danielson has been on the Boise State staffs since 2017 and his in his second-year as the defensive coordinator. Last year, his unit ranked 12th nationally in scoring defense and 30th in pass defense.
