DEPARTMENT FACT BOOK 2013-14


ATHLETIC FACILITIES BRONCO STADIUM & STUECKLE SKY CENTER

In an effort to continue the climb in competition, Boise State has outlined a plan to improve the infrastructure and financial position of its athletic department. The project is called the “Initiative for Athletic Excellence.” It is a detailed plan that lays out the direction for the department and its facilities to ensure the Broncos’ continued growth and success.

CAVEN-WILLIAMS SPORTS COMPLEX

In the last 15 years Boise State’s growth has led to the addition of women’s soccer (1998), women’s swimming & diving (2006-07) and softball (2008-09). During that time Boise State has built four competition facilities: the state-of-the-art Appleton Outdoor Tennis Center (2002), the Boas Soccer & Tennis Complex (2003), Jacksons Indoor Track (2003 - a joint effort with the city of Nampa) and Dona Larsen Park which includes new track & field and softball stadiums (2012). In January of 2006 the Caven-Williams Sports Complex, a 97,000 square-foot indoor practice facility, was opened next to Bronco Stadium. The Boas Indoor Tennis Center also underwent significant renovation with the replacement of the bubbles, while the Stueckle Sky Center, which includes a new press box, luxury suites, banquet halls, new ticket office, a Bronco Shop, and much more was finished in 2008. In the summer of 2011, the 10,000-square foot Arguinchona Basketball Complex, including locker rooms, a theater-style film room, lounges and study areas for men's and women's basektball, was completed. Seating capacity for football games increased to 36,387 in the summer of 2012, after phase one of the Boise State football complex and stadium expansion. Phase two added the Bleymaier Football Center, which houses football offices, locker rooms, team rooms, training rooms and more was completed for the 2013 football season.

CONFERENCE AFFILIATIONS MOUNTAIN WEST... From its inception in 1999, the Mountain West has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. Now in its 15th year, the MW has been assertive in its involvement with the NCAA governance structure and has taken a leadership role in the overall administration of intercollegiate athletics. The Mountain West has marked several achievements over its first 14 years of existence, most notably becoming the first to establish a sports television network dedicated solely to an intercollegiate athletic conference (The Mtn.). The Mountain West also was the first to experiment with the coaches’ challenge in the college football instant replay system, and was the first nonautomatic-qualifying BCS conference to participate in four BCS bowl games, winning three. In 2011-12, the Mountain West was among the first conferences to implement a league-wide state-ofthe-art basketball instant replay system. Additionally, the Mountain West was the first conference to have a member institution with No. 1 overall picks in both the NFL and NBA drafts in the same year (Utah’s Alex Smith and Andrew Bogut, respectively in 2005). With UNLV’s Anthony Bennett claiming the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, the Mountain West is one of three conferences to have multiple No. 1 NBA draft selections since 2000. Also, with San Diego State’s Stephen Strasburg earning the No. 1 pick in the 2009 MLB Draft, the Mountain West is one of two conferences to have the No. 1 selection in each of the NFL, NBA and MLB drafts since the MW was founded in 1999. The Mountain West is noted for its geographic diversity. Some of the most beautiful terrain and landscapes in the nation can be found within Mountain West boundaries, including the majestic Rocky Mountain range, which borders five MW institutions (Air Force, Boise State, Colorado State, New Mexico and Utah State). The high plains of Wyoming (elevation 7,220 feet – the highest Division I campus in the nation) contrast with the desert cities of Las Vegas and Reno, home to UNLV and Nevada, respectively,

while Fresno State, San Diego State and San Jose State add a West coast influence with their locations in Central, Southern and Northern California. The inclusion of the Hawai‘i football program extends the Mountain West footprint to the beautiful islands in the Pacific Ocean. The Mountain West was conceived on May 26, 1998, when the presidents of eight institutions — Air Force, BYU, Colorado State, New Mexico, San Diego State, UNLV, Utah and Wyoming — decided to form a new NCAA Division I-A intercollegiate athletic conference. The split from a former 16-team conference re-established continuity and stability among the membership within the new league and signaled the continuation of its tradition-rich, long-standing athletic rivalries. Three of the MW’s eight original members have been conference rivals since the 1960s (New Mexico, Wyoming and Colorado State), while San Diego State (1978) and Air Force (1980) were longtime members as well. UNLV and TCU entered the fold in 1996 and the Rebels continued as one of the original eight institutions that formed the MW in 1999. TCU re-joined the group with its first year of competition in the Mountain West in 2005-06. With conference realignment sweeping the nation in recent years, the MW has been proactive in addressing membership changes. Boise State University joined the Mountain West in 2011-12, followed by Fresno State and the University of Nevada on July 1, 2012. Also on July 1, 2012, the University of Hawai‘i became a football-only member of the Conference. On July 1, 2013, the Mountain West further expanded when San Jose State University and Utah State University joined the Conference, bringing to 11 the number of full-time member institutions and 12 football-playing members. When the Mountain West officially began operations on July 1, 1999, the new league had in place a seven-year contract with ESPN, giving the broadcaster exclusive national television rights to MW football and men’s basketball, and three-year agreements to send the league’s football champion to the Liberty Bowl and a second team to the Las Vegas Bowl. Commissioner Craig Thompson also arranged a third bowl tie-in each of the first three seasons (1999 Motor City, 2000 Silicon Valley, 2001 New Orleans) before securing a four-year deal with the Emerald Bowl in San Francisco in 2002. Entering the 2013 season, the MW has six contracted bowl affiliations – the Las Vegas Bowl, San Diego Country Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, Sheraton Hawai‘i Bowl, Famous Potato Idaho Bowl and Gildan New Mexico Bowl. An innovator in the postseason bowl structure, the MW engineered many “firsts,” as league teams have participated in five inaugural bowl games (2000 Silicon Valley, 2001 New Orleans, 2002 San Francisco ( Emerald), 2005 Poinsettia, 2006 New Mexico), as well as placing the first non-automatic-qualifying BCS team into a BCS bowl game with Utah’s appearance in the 2005 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

CONFERENCE AFFILIATIONS CRAIG THOMPSON MOUNTAIN WEST COMMISSIONER ALMA MATER: MINNESOTA Craig Thompson was the Mountain West Conference’s first employee when he was named Commissioner on Oct. 15, 1998. Ever since, Thompson has navigated the newest NCAA Division I conference through the ever-changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics. As the league enters its 15th season of competition in 2013-14, Thompson continues to create and improve the opportunities for Mountain West institutions and student-athletes to be successful both academically and athletically. Since the Mountain West opened its doors on January 4, 1999, Thompson has been committed to excellence in intercollegiate athletics, while promoting the academic missions of its member institutions. Progressive in its approach, the MW has flourished under the guidance of Commissioner Thompson and continues to cultivate opportunities for student-athletes to compete at the highest level, while fostering academic achievement and sportsmanship. He has been instrumental in negotiating nearly $300 million in television revenue and has been an innovator in the postseason bowl structure as MW teams have participated in five inaugural bowl games. As conference realignment spread throughout the collegiate landscape over the past few years, Thompson positioned the Mountain West for the future with the additions of Fresno State and the University of Nevada on July 1, 2012, and San Jose State University and Utah State University on July 1, 2013. The University of Hawai‘i also joined the league as a football-only member on July 1, 2012. His leadership and vision have helped the conference enhance its television revenue and exposure through revolutionary agreements with CBS Sports Network, Comcast and ESPN, including becoming the first major collegiate athletic conference to launch a dedicated sports channel featuring exclusive programming around its athletic programs, as well as conference news. In the summer of 2006, the centerpiece of this historic relationship was realized with the launch of The Mtn. – MountainWest Sports Network – the first sports network dedicated to serving a single collegiate athletic conference. Thompson has been instrumental in strengthening the position of the Mountain West in the current Bowl Championship Series (BCS) structure. In 2006, he spearheaded an effort that resulted in better access for the MW and more than doubled the annual BCS revenue on an annual basis for non-automatic-qualifying conferences. The MW has been steadfast in its efforts to find a way to make the collegiate postseason football system fair for all universities. Through its first 14 years of competition, the Mountain West has participated in 56 bowl games, amassing a 32-24 (.571) all-time record in those contests. Over the last nine seasons, the MW has captured the Bowl Challenge Cup four times and owns the second-best win percentage in bowl games among the 10 FBS conferences with a 25-16 mark (.610). The MW claimed the 2010, 2009 and 2007 Challenge Cups after finishing each of the three postseasons with 4-1 (.800) records. The league

earned its first Cup after registering a 2-1 mark in bowl competition during the 2004 season. The Mountain West is the only conference to win the Bowl Challenge Cup four times since the award’s inception in 2002. Prior to his current role, Thompson served as the commissioner of the Sun Belt Conference for nearly eight years and as the only commissioner of the American South Conference prior to the merger of the two leagues in 1991. During his eight years at the Sun Belt, he spent the majority of his time addressing national trends and challenges in intercollegiate athletics, television exposure, issues relating to conference membership and promoting corporate involvement. In 1997-98, the Sun Belt instituted a comprehensive sportsmanship policy, which earned Thompson designation as a 1998 Sports Ethics Fellow by the Institute for International Sport. Under Thompson’s leadership, the Sun Belt was active in expansion as it continued to strengthen its posture nationally, adding Florida International University and the University of Denver. Thompson is an integral part of the national landscape in intercollegiate athletics, holding many prestigious NCAA posts. He is currently on the NCAA Football Board of Directors and a member of the BCS administration. Thompson also is a member of the College Football Officiating Board of Managers, LLC, and a consultant for the Task Force on Commercial Activity in Intercollegiate Athletics. He also has served on the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee (1995-2000) and was appointed Chair of the committee in July 1999, completing his term September 1, 2000. Over the tenure of his career, Thompson has been a member of the Executive Committee and the Director’s Cup Committee of the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA), as well as the governing NCAA Council and various Council subcommittees. He has also played a prominent role in hosting numerous men’s and women’s NCAA postseason basketball tournaments in St. Louis, Atlanta, New Orleans and Denver. Prior to its merger with the Sun Belt, Thompson served as the first and only commissioner of the American South Conference, which boasted an NCAA national champion in women’s basketball during its first year. The American South also gained immediate national cable television exposure on ESPN and sent numerous teams into NCAA postseason play during the conference’s four-year history. Preceding his move to commissioner, Thompson served four years as the Director of Communications for the Metro Conference in Atlanta. While at the Metro, he directed the communications operations and administered conference championship events. Thompson originated the Metro Conference Sportswriters and Broadcasters Association, began a weekly radio program with over 300 affiliate stations, and originated a weekly satellite video program involving all Metro institutions. He also took on administrative duties such as coordination of officials, scheduling of tournament and regular-season play, and handling of legislative rules interpretations. Thompson graduated from the University of Minnesota with an undergraduate degree in journalism. Following graduation, he spent two years as assistant sports information director at Kansas State University, earning numerous CoSIDA publication awards. He then spent three years as director of public relations and promotions for the NBA’s Kansas City Kings. Thompson and his wife, Carla, have a son (Ted) and a daughter (Emma).

STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING

COACH SOCHA’S PHILOSOPHY

STRENGTH & CONDITIONING COACHES

Head strength and conditioning coach Tim Socha’s philosophy is that student-athletes are not only going to train hard, but that they are going to do the correct exercises that help them excel in their sport. The staff uses variation in the training programs to enhance the student-athletes’ ability to adapt and improve. The variation involves both multi-joint and multi-plane training. Flexibility, core strength and proprioceptive training also is included in all programs. Through all of the training, sport specificity is emphasized, and the one thing that will never be forgotten is that hard work is what wins championships. All 19 Boise State varsity athletic teams utilize the strength and conditioning center. Each team has a sport-specific program designed to help each studentathlete increase his or her athletic potential and decrease the chance of injury. Boise State coaches take pride in the fact that their student-athletes are some of the best conditioned in the nation. The facility is fully equipped with many different machines, as well as various free weight equipment. An additional football strength and conditioning ceter was added to the department with the completion of the Gene Bleymaier Football Complex.

ADMINISTRATION & STAFF 2013-14


UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT DR. ROBERT W. KUSTRA, Boise State President Our metropolitan research campus has expandedconsiderablyinDr.Kustra’stenureand now boasts state-of-the art multidisciplinary buildings, high-tech classrooms, clean rooms and laboratories and cutting-edge facilities for the arts, business and economics, engineering, science, public policy and more. The university has more than doubled its graduate offerings and has become the fastest-growing research enterprise in Idaho.

In Dr. Bob Kustra’s 10 years as president, Boise State University has grown to 22,000 students with over 3,700 graduates a year.

Dr. Kustra’s administration has also been marked by an emphasis on upgrading admissions standards to the highest of all Idaho’s public universities, improving the undergraduate experience and nurturing a vibrant campus life. He led the first comprehensive campaign in university history, Destination Distinction, besting the goal of $185 million in private support for faculty, student scholarships and campus infrastructure. He has also been instrumental in the fundraising drive to expand Bronco Stadium and the launch of a new scholarship campaign.

While the majority of our students hail from Idaho, current enrollment is characterized by substantial increases in out of state and international students as well as higher entering grade point averages than a decade ago. About 95 percent of new freshmen attend as full-time students compared to just 68 percent in 2001.

Before coming to Idaho, Dr. Kustra had a long and distinguished career in public service in Illinois, serving two terms as lieutenant governor, and 10 years in the Illinois legislature, where he served in leadership. He chaired the Illinois Board of Higher Education, responsible for funding and oversight of the state’s nine public universities.

22

He served as president of the Midwestern Higher Education Commission and of Eastern Kentucky University. He has held faculty positions at Northwestern University, the University of Illinois-Chicago, Loyola University of Chicago and the University of IllinoisSpringfield. Dr. Kustra was a member of the NCAA Division I board of directors and executive committee and served on the Presidential Task Force on the Future of Intercollegiate Athletics. He also served as a Commissioner of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education. He has been inducted into the Idaho Hall of Fame and was named the Most Influential Person in the Boise valley by The Idaho Statesman. Each week, Dr. Kustra features lively conversations with some of the nation’s leading authors about issues and ideas that matter today on his radio show, Reader’s Corner, which airs weekly on Boise State’s NPR station. He holds degrees from Benedictine College and Southern Illinois University, and a Ph.D. in political science from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He and his wife, Kathy, have two grown children, three grandsons, and treasure the memory of their son, Steve.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS MARK COYLE, Executive Director of Athletics at Boise State The 2013-14 academic year will see new changes to the Bronco Athletic Association, including a new priority point system that will reward season ticket holders and financial gifts to the athletics department. Coyle also implemented a new strategic plan for the department - centered on developing student-athletes to be leaders academically, athletically and in the community. He came to Boise State from the University of Kentucky, where he served as the Deputy Director of Athletics.

Mark Coyle was named Director of Athletics on Dec. 1, 2011. During his tenure, he has negotiated new multi-year agreements with head football coach Chris Petersen, head men's basketball coach Leon Rice, hired a new women's soccer coach, Jim Thomas, from the University of Washington, hired a new men's and women's track and field and cross country coach, Corey Ihmels, from Iowa State University, and has seen the Bronco Athletic teams post the highest grade-point average in school history each academic semester. In addition to the academic success, the Broncos have won multiple conference championships, including football, women's gymnastics, women's swimming and diving and and men's tennis. Several teams have advanced to NCAA postseason play, including men's basketball, women's gymnastics, men's tennis, wrestling and men's and women's track and field. The 2012 football season set a season ticket sales record and men's basketball attendance increased more than 38 percent for the 2012-13 season. Additionally, the department successfully negotiated future home-and-home football games with Florida State University, the University of Virginia and Oklahoma State University.

In that role, he oversaw the day-today operations of an $83 million, selfsufficient, 22-sport athletics department. He served as the sport administrator for men's basketball and volleyball, and also handled the management of scheduling contracts for football and men's basketball. While at Kentucky, fundraising reached record levels in annual seat donations and capital pledges, improving facilities for multiple programs, including football, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's soccer, volleyball, gymnastics, men's and women's track and field, softball, baseball and rifle. During his time at Kentucky, the athletics department's operating budget increased $28 million. Additionally, Coyle oversaw the day-to-day management of the multi-media rights agreement with IMG College, valued at more than $78 million.

As a member of Minnesota's executive management team, Coyle was responsible for assisting with the supervision of the day-to-day operations of the department, including creating and implementing the athletics budget, hiring coaches, administrators and staff. Prior to joining Minnesota, Coyle was the Vice President of the Collegiate Sports Division at Host Communications, Inc. Coyle helped manage multi-media marketing rights agreements with several Division I universities and conferences, including the University of Kentucky, the University of Texas, Florida State University, the University of Tennessee, the University of Notre Dame and the Southeastern Conference. In addition, Coyle gained valuable experience in ticket operations at Florida State University and the University of Miami (Fla.). Coyle (11/11/68) received his bachelor's degree in English from Drake University in 1991. He earned his master's degree in teaching from Drake University in 1992 and a master's degree in sports administration from Florida State University in 1993. He is married to Krystan, who is a doctor of physical therapy, and they have three children - Grace, Nicholas and Benjamin.

Coyle joined the University of Kentucky from the University of Minnesota, where he served nearly four years in a number of capacities, most recently as Associate Athletics Director for External Relations. In this role, he oversaw the corporate sponsorship and suite sales of Gopher Sports Properties, marketing and promotions, athletics communications, video services, the ticket office, licensing and gophersports. com.
