Danielson Named Broncos’ 10th Assistant

Spencer Danielson will coach the Bronco STUDs

Spencer Danielson enters his first season as an assistant coach with the Boise State football team, overseeing the Broncos’ STUDs, and his second year on staff after serving as a defensive graduate assistant in 2017.

While working with the Broncos' STUDs in 2017, two of Danielson's players garnered All-Mountain West accolades. Curtis Weaver became the first freshman defensive player in conference history to garner first-team all-league honors, and Jabril Frazier was named second-team All-MW. Weaver and Frazier combined for 17 sacks in 2017, half the team's total. Weaver's 11 led the team, were tied for the sixth-most across college football and were the most by a freshman nationally. Frazier ranked second on the team with six sacks.

Prior to joining Boise State, Danielson spent his previous four years coaching at his alma mater, Azusa Pacific, where he started for three seasons at linebacker for the Cougars. He coached linebackers his final three seasons, and also served as recruiting coordinator in 2016.

He was one of 30 coaches selected from nearly 200 applicants for the inaugural American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) 30 Under 30 Coaches' Leadership Institute at the 2016 AFCA Convention, participating in focused, interactive lectures on topics including ethics, leadership, NCAA rules, financial management, hiring and player safety.

Danielson concluded his playing career in 2012, earning team Defensive Most Valuable Player honors after finishing as the squad's third-leading tackler. From 2009-12, Danielson registered 190 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, and five interceptions.

A native of Solana Beach, Calif., Danielson graduated from Azusa Pacific with a degree in business administration in 2012, and earned his MBA from Azusa Pacific in 2013.

He and his wife Raechel (Jones), a former Azusa Pacific volleyball player, were married in 2015.
