Boise State hires Lake to coach Bronco secondary 

Boise State coach Chris Petersen has turned to the NFL to fill a vacancy on his coaching staff.

Petersen announced Tuesday that Jimmy Lake will be the new coach for the Broncos' defensive backfield and coordinator of pass defense.

Lake coached the last two seasons overseeing defensive backs for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he coached the secondary for the Detroit Lions in 2008.

Before coaching at the professional level, Lake worked at Eastern Washington, Montana State and Washington, where he was responsible for cornerbacks in 2004.

Lake takes over for Marcel Yates, who accepted a coaching position at Texas A&M.
