    BOISE, Idaho – Boise State football head coach Bryan Harsin will be one of four speakers at this coming Monday’s (Nov. 2) Bronco Luncheon in the Jordan Ballroom at the Student Union Building.

    Boise State Executive Director of Athletics Curt Apsey, gymnastics co-head coach Neil Resnick and the spirit squad’s Connor Olney will also speak at Monday’s luncheon.

    The idea of community has boosted the luncheon series concept with the goal of giving Bronco fans an exciting kickoff to their week. In addition to the special guests Monday’s luncheon will also feature select student-athletes, the Spirit Squad and giveaways.

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

    This season, Harsin has guided the Broncos to a 6-2 record, and a 3-1 mark in Mountain West play heading into this Saturday’s road contest at UNLV.

    Apsey also made a return to Boise State after a short time away, taking the reins as athletic director in July 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, most notably serving as interim athletic director from Sept. 2011 to January 2012.

    Resnick, who shares the head-coaching duties with Tina Bird, is in his ninth season at Boise State. Under the direction of Resnick and Bird Boise State has gone 149-54 (.734) and finished in the national top 25 in all eight previous seasons, including a 13th-place finish in 2011.

    The pair has taken the Broncos to six conference titles (five WAC, one Mountain Rim) and eight NCAA Regional appearances entering the 2016 campaign.

    Olney represents Boise State at numerous events as a member of the Bronco spirit squad, performing along with the Blue Thunder Marching Band.

    The final Bronco Luncheon is scheduled to take place Nov. 30.
