Dusty Clements Named Associate AD for Development

Dec. 22, 2014 BOISE, Idaho - Dusty Clements has been named associate athletic director for development at Boise State University, as announced today by Bronco Director of Athletics Mark Coyle.

Clements joins the Bronco athletic staff after spending the past seven years at the University of Oklahoma. He joined the Oklahoma staff in February of 2007 working in the Sooner Club and was promoted to his current position of assistant athletic director for development in 2011.

"I'm very excited to join the Boise State family and look forward to working alongside athletic and University staff in enhancing the Bronco program," Clements stated. "I am thankful to Mark Coyle for the opportunity to have a role in the future of Boise State athletics. I also want to thank everyone at the University of Oklahoma in helping make my experience there so gratifying."

While at Oklahoma, Clements helped the Sooner Club set an all-time record for total membership (10,846) and annual giving ($22.5 million) in 2014. He assisted in the $75 million capital campaign for OU's new residence hall which was funded entirely by OU Athletics, and worked with the development staff in securing over $25 million in capital giving pledges the past three years.

This past October Clements was honored by Oklahoma as the athletic department's Inspiring Champions Award Winner, given in recognition of an OU athletics staff member who exemplifies the mission and values of the department and University.

"We are very excited about the addition of Dusty to our executive team," Boise State's senior associate athletic director for external operations John Cunningham commented. "Dusty brings a wealth of experience and will have a significant impact on all our development efforts as well as the day-to-day operation of our Bronco Athletic Association."

Clements will be responsible for managing major gift fundraising and development activities for the Bronco Athletic Department.

Receiving both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Wyoming, Clements was the assistant commissioner for media relations at the Big Sky Conference from 2001-04, before returning to his alma mater and spending three years as a development officer in the Cowboy Joe Club.

He and his wife Julie have one son, Dalton, and twin girls, Addison and Brooklyn.

His first day at Boise State will be January 12, 2015.
