Brad Bedell is entering his first season as the Broncos' offensive line coach, having been named to the position in March of 2017.

Bedell, who previously worked under Harsin at Arkansas State, and with several current members of the Boise State coaching staff during stints at Colorado and Texas State, had most recently served as the assistant head coach and offensive line coach at Lamar, where he was hired in January following a season at Baylor.

He began his coaching career as an offensive intern at Colorado (2007-09), his alma mater, where he garnered first-team All-America and All-Big 12 First Team honors at right guard following his senior campaign in 1999. He then went on to play six seasons in the National Football League, spending time with the Browns (2000-01), Dolphins (2003), Packers (2004-05) and Texans (2006).

Bedell's debut as a full-time assistant was spent at Northern Colorado in 2010, where he mentored a pair of All-Big Sky selections as offensive line coach. He moved on to UC Davis in 2011, serving as the team's offensive line coach and run game coordinator, again producing a pair of all-league selections.

He coached at New Mexico State in 2012, with another pupil picking up all-conference accolades, before joining Harsin at Arkansas State in 2013. A-State captured the Sun Belt Championship and a victory in the GoDaddy Bowl that season, helping to lead an offensive attack that averaged more than 200 rushing yards per game behind two All-Sun Belt honorees along the offensive line.

Following two seasons as the offensive line coach at Texas State (2014-15), Bedell joined the Baylor staff as an offensive quality control assistant and assistant director of operations in the spring of 2016, and remained on staff for the duration of the 2016 season.
