Boise State coach Chris Petersen held his signing day news conference, and in addition to talking about his class, discussed some new coaching changes.

Check out the audio next to the story.

Petersen said Wednesday that he has hired former Bronco linebacker Andy Avalos as the Broncos' new defensive line coach.

Avalos played from 2001-04, then was a linebackers coach at Corona (Calif.) High in 2005. From 2006-08, he was a graduate assistant at Colorado, then was defensive line coach at Nebraska-Kearney from 2009-10. Last season, he was linebackers coach at Sacramento State.

Petersen said Scott Huff will coach special teams in addition to his duties coaching tight ends/fullbacks. New hire Jimmy Lake will coach the defensive backs, which will include nickels.

Walk-ons Josh Borgman, Hazen Moss and Drew Wright were put on scholarship, Petersen said. He also added that running back Malcolm Johnson is no longer enrolled in school. He previously had been in the same situation last year.
