Busted Bronco on Dialogue

Busted Bronco (Dialogue)

In 2003, former Boise State All-American defensive end and Montana State University football coach Joe O’Brien experienced a stunning downfall. He was arrested for his part in an illegal drug distribution scheme and sentenced to federal prison. How did this charismatic leader and NFL hopeful hide years of addiction? And after more than two years in prison, how did he turn his life around?

Joan Cartan-Hansen talks with O’Brien and Boise writer Bob Evancho, co-author of O’Brien’s life story, Busted Bronco: From Addiction to Redemption. The book goes into painful detail about O’Brien’s personal struggles, but it also recounts O’Brien’s story of redemption and renewal.
