University of Idaho Press Release:
MOSCOW, Idaho - University of Idaho receivers coach Chad Q. Brown has accepted the offensive coordinator's position at the University of Northern Colorado. Brown also served as UI's recruiting coordinator.
"This is a great opportunity for Chad and his family," UI coach Nick Holt said. "To become a coordinator and work with the quarterbacks is something he's wanted to do for quite a while."
During his two years at Idaho, Brown coached two of the Vandals' most productive receivers. Bobby Bernal-Wood became the school's record holder for receptions in a single season after pulling in 96 in 2004. Last fall, D.J. Smith set a single-game record with 269 receiving yards at UNLV.
"We're sorry to see Chad leave," Holt said. "He did a great job while he was here.
"We wish him the best."
Holt said he will focus on selecting Brown's replacement once the recruiting season ends with the Feb. 1 National Letter of Intent signing day.
