BOISE, Idaho -- Boise State football head coach Bryan Harsin will be one of three speakers at this Monday's (Sept. 21) Bronco Luncheon in the Jordan Ballroom at the Student Union Building on campus.

Boise State Executive Director of Athletics Curt Apsey and women's volleyball head coach Shawn Garus will also speak at Monday's luncheon.

The idea of community has boosted the luncheon series with the goal of giving Bronco fans an exciting Monday kickoff to their week. Monday's luncheon is the second in a six-event series running through November with featured speakers, special guests, Boise State head coaches, Bronco student-athletes plus highlight videos and giveaways.

Individual luncheon tickets can be purchased for $15 each through BroncoAthleticAssociation.com or by calling 208-426-4737. Walk-up guests are also welcome. Doors will open on Monday at 11:30 a.m. with the program set to begin at noon.

The luncheons are open to the public and complimentary parking will be available for attendees in the Lincoln Garage across the street from the Student Union Building. Guests can park in any available spot in the garage. Visit a pay kiosk, enter in space number, click "Purchase" and then select "Bronco Luncheon." Kiosks are located on each floor of the garage and guests will receive a receipt after following step-by-step instructions on the screen.

Harsin, who served as a Bronco assistant coach from 2001-10, returned to his alma mater in December 2013 after two years as offensive coordinator at Texas (2011-12) and one season as head coach at Arkansas State (2013). In his debut season at the Bronco helm, Harsin guided the Broncos to a 12-2 record, its first outright Mountain West championship and the program's third VIZIO Fiesta Bowl title.

Apsey also made a return to Boise State after a short time away, taking the reins as athletic director in August after nine months in the same position at Carroll College in Helena, Mont. Prior to leaving for Carroll, Apsey spent 16 years (1998-2014) in the Boise State athletic administration, serving as interim athletic director from Sept. 2011 to January 2012.

Garus currently has the Bronco women's volleyball team off to a 6-3 start, the program's best start over nine matches since 2011. He recently earned his 100th win at Boise State with the team's 3-0 sweep of Abilene Christian this past Saturday (Sept. 12).

The remaining four Bronco Luncheons are scheduled to take place Oct. 5, Oct. 19, Nov. 2 and Nov. 30.
