CBKB: Boise State fires Graham after 8 seasons


Associated Press

BOISE, Idaho Greg Graham has been fired as head coach at Boise State.

Boise State athletic director Gene Bleymaier announces the decision Friday, saying it was time for a change in leadership. The move comes one day after the Broncos were trounced by Utah State 84-60 in the first round of the Western Athletic Conference tournament.
Graham had a 142-112 record in eight seasons with the Broncos. He led them to a WAC championship two years ago, but the team struggled this year, finishing 15-17 overall and 5-11 in conference play.
Bleymaier said Graham has been placed on administrative leave and relieved of his coaching duties. He has one year remaining under a contract signed two years ago.
