BOISE, Idaho Sean Kugler, the assistant head coach and offensive line coach for the 2007 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl Champion Boise State University football team, has resigned his position with the Broncos to take an offensive line coaching position with the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League.
Boise State head coach Chris Petersen made the announcement Sunday (Feb. 4).
“Sean did a spectacular job for us this past year,” Petersen stated. “Sean and his wife’s family are from the Buffalo area. This great coaching opportunity allows him to be close to members of their family. Families take priority and this was hard for Sean not to pass up. We wish Sean all the best in the NFL. He not only made our offensive line better this past year, he made all of us better.”
Kugler joined the Bronco staff last year after Petersen was named Boise State’s head coach in December of 2005. Along with his assistant head coaching duties, Kugler put together an offensive line in 2006 which led Boise State to the only undefeated record in the country, the team’s fifth straight Western Athletic Conference Championship and a final national ranking of No. 5 in the Associated Press poll and No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
Kugler came to Boise State after spending five seasons coaching in the NFL with the Detroit Lions. He also served as an assistant coach at the University of Texas-El Paso, where he played his collegiate football.
A search for Kugler’s replacement is currently underway.
