The one thing that may have deterred coaches from the Boise State quarterbacks job, is just the challenge that Jonathan Smith was looking for.
“I was kind of excited about the opportunity to coach the guy who replaces Kellen (Moore),” Smith said. "that’s a challenge...that’s no joke. That in a way kind of challenges me. And it’s not going to be easy.”
Smith, who had previously served as the offensive coordinator at Montana, said that getting back and becoming an offensive coordinator is something he would like to do again in his career. The bottom line was that being around Petersen and his staff was an opportunity he couldn't pass up.
“There’s a formula that’s been used here, to win so many games...I’m anxious to learn that.” he explained.
