Montana State Bobcats defensive coordinator Kane Ioane set to join Boise State staff

BOZEMAN — Montana State’s football coaching staff has taken another hit.

Kane Ioane, who returned to Bozeman in 2019 as the Bobcats’ defensive coordinator, has agreed to become the co-defensive coordinator at Boise State. Multiple sources told MTN Sports that Ioane told his players on Friday and is flying to Boise on Sunday.

MTN Sports’ attempts to reach Ioane were unsuccessful.

Ioane is one of the legendary figures in Montana State football history. He played safety for the Bobcats from 2000-03, becoming a four-time All-American. He then joined MSU’s coaching staff in 2004 and served in some capacity until 2016 when he joined the staff at the University of Washington. Ioane worked as a defensive analyst with the Huskies before returning to MSU in 2019 to become the Bobcats’ defensive coordinator.
