Boise State quarterback Hank Bachmeier intends to enter the transfer portal, sources confirmed to Bronco Nation News early Monday morning.
The news comes two days after Boise State fired offensive coordinator Tim Plough and replaced him with former Boise State head coach and longtime NFL offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.
Since Bachmeier only played in four games this season, he’ll be able to count the year as a redshirt and get the year of eligibility back. Combined with the bonus COVID season, Bachmeier will have two years of eligibility remaining at his next school.
Bachmeier had two interceptions and lost a fumble early in a season-opening loss to Oregon State and was benched in favor of redshirt freshman Taylen Green. Bachmeier started the next three games but struggled, including when he went just 13 of 34 for 93 yards and a touchdown in a 27-10 loss at UTEP last Friday night.
In four games this season, all starts, Bachmeier was 51 of 94 (54.3 percent) for 497 yards and six touchdowns to go along with three interceptions.
Bachmeier started 29 games for the Broncos the past four years.
Green, who could be the Boise State starter for the next four years, rushed 11 times for 102 yards after relieving Bachmeier against Oregon State. He also completed 19 of 28 passes for 155 yards.

Hank has been classy throughout his career and he’s been an absolute trooper in the pocket. He’s got two years to find a more stable fit. I hope he succeeds wherever he lands.
