Former All-American joins BSU staff, coached with Moore family at Prosser High

Boise State head coach Bryan Harsin confirmed previous reports when he announced former Eastern Washington wide receiver coach Junior Adams would join his staff in the same capacity on Thursday.


(KTVB sports director Jay Tust sent out this tweet on Wednesday, Jan. 7. Harsin “favorited” it shortly afterwards.)

Eagles head coach Beau Baldwin released this statement yesterday:

"I am extremely grateful for everything Coach Adams did for our program over the last five years. We are going to miss him, but we are very excited for him and the opporunity he has at Boise State.

Adams coached four different 1,000-yard wide receivers at Eastern Washington, including freshman Cooper Kupper who led the nation with 1,691 receiving yards in 2013.

Adams was also a standout wide receiver himself in college. He was a member of Oregon State’s 2000 Pac-10 Conference Championship team and played in the 2001 Fiesta Bowl. He transferred to Montana State for his final two seasons and eventually earned All-American honors with the Bobcats.

Fittingly, Adams’ coaching career has detoured through Prosser, Washington. Adams was an assistant at Montana State from 2004-06. He then joined the staff of Tom Moore, the father of former Boise State standouts Kellen and Kirby Moore, at Prosser High School in 2007.
