Quarterback: After compiling one of the strongest seasons of any quarterback in school history, sophomore Kellen Moore (6-0, 184) enters his second season in charge of the Boise State offense.
After becoming the first freshman quarterback in school history to start a season opener, Moore was named 2008 WAC Freshman of the Year and Second-Team All-WAC. He started all 13 games in his first season, in which he completed 69.4 percent of his passes (281-of-405) with 25 touchdown throws and only 10 interceptions. Moore ended the season with the 12th best pass efficiency rating in the country (157.12).
Moore’s backup is expected to be junior Mike Coughlin (6-5, 220), who has seen limited action in his first two seasons at Boise State. Coughlin played in six games last year. He completed 3-of-5 passes with one touchdown and no interceptions. Boise State has used Coughlin as a running quarterback, on occasion, adding some versatility to the offensive attack.
