Prince Named Broncos' Offensive Coordinator
BOISE, Idaho – Boise State football head coach Chris Petersen announced the promotion of Robert Prince to offensive coordinator, Wednesday.

Prince, who had served as the team’s wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator in 2011, will also coach wide receivers going forward.

“We are looking forward to having Robert (Prince) direct our offense,” Petersen said. “He has been working for many years to become an offensive coordinator and I know he’ll do an outstanding job for us. I’m looking forward to what type of spin he’ll put on the offense.”

“My family and I are excited,” Prince said. “We love Boise, and we are looking forward to the opportunity. Offensively, we have a great staff and I’m looking forward to working with them in a new capacity.”

Prince returned to Boise State in 2011 after a seven-year hiatus from the school. He coached the Broncos’ wide receivers from 2001-03, and spent the 2003 season as the Broncos’ pass game coordinator before moving on to coach in the National Football League for six seasons.

In 2009 Prince served as the receivers coach for the Seattle Seahawks. He also spent two seasons as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars coaching staff, working as the assistant receivers coach (2007-08), and three seasons with the Atlanta Falcons (2004-06), working as the offensive assistant for tight ends and running backs from 2004-05, and as assistant quarterbacks coach in 2006.

Prince also coached at Colorado, where he served as the Buffaloes' passing game coordinator and receivers coach during the 2010 season.

Before joining the Boise State staff in 2001, Prince coached at Portland State, where he was the receivers coach in 1998 and the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach in 1999 and 2000. He has also been the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach in the Japanese X-League (1996-97) and at Fort Lewis (Colo.) College (1994-95), and was the wide receivers coach at Sacramento State from 1992-93. 

Prince has served three different minority training camp internships in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers (2000 and 2002) and the San Diego Chargers (2001). He has also served as a graduate assistant coach at Montana State in 1991 and at Humboldt State (Calif.) in 1989 and 1990.

He is a graduate of Humboldt State, where he earned his bachelor's degree in 1990, and his master's degree in 1992.
