Louie Rodriguez is in his third season with the Boise State football team, serving as offensive graduate assistant.
Rodriguez joined the Bronco staff after coaching at Ellsworth Community College (Iowa Falls, Iowa) for three seasons, serving as the associate head coach and offensive line coach in each of the final two. He also coached the Panthers' tight ends and was the in-state recruiting coordinator in 2010, and was the defensive line coach, video coordinator and out-of-state recruiting coordinator in 2008.
The Panthers averaged 453.6 yards per game in 2010, leading the nation during the regular season. It marked the third-straight year Ellsworth had accomplished the feat. The Panthers averaged 490.5 yards per game in 2009, and all five offensive linemen earned all-region accolades in each of his two seasons of tutelage.
As a defensive line coach in 2008, Rodriguez helped steer the Panthers to a No. 14 national ranking in total defense.
The team made a bowl appearance in each of Rodriguez's three years of coaching, and won back-to-back Region XI Championships in 2008 and 2009 - the first time Ellsworth had accomplished the feat since 1991-92.
Rodriguez also coached three years at Sharpstown High School, where he helped lead a program that had not won a game in three seasons to its first playoff appearance in 30 years, and one year at Katy High School. He played prep football for Katy, and also spent three years playing minor league football.
Rodriguez graduated cum laude from Houston with a degree in kinesiology.
