May 16, 2016

BOISE, Idaho – Chris Ross has joined the Boise State football staff as director of program development, head coach Bryan Harsin announced Monday.

Responsibilities will include working with the coaching staff while also focusing on recruiting and player development.

“We couldn't be more excited to have Coach Ross join the Bronco family," Harsin said. "I met Chris during my time at the University of Texas and have seen the kind of person, coach and mentor he is. Our whole objective with Chris in this position is to help us get better in recruiting, teaching and connecting with everything that surrounds our program."

A 21-year veteran in the prep ranks, serving as both an athletic director and football coach, Ross joins the Broncos from Prosper High School in Prosper, Texas, where he served as both athletic director and head coach of the football team this past season.

He also spent seven years (2005-12) coaching at Cedar Park High School, and four at Wichita Falls High School (2001-04). In all, Ross helped lead his teams to 10 playoff appearances and five district titles, and claimed eight conference or region coach of the year honors.

Ross also served as athletic director for the Leander Independent School District from 2012-15, which encompassed five high schools and eight middle schools, and included roughly 250 coaches. His schools claimed the 5A Lone Star Cup Championship in two of his three seasons as athletic director, an award that recognizes the most outstanding extracurricular program in the state.

Ross officially began his duties with Boise State today.
