Curt Apsey, proven leader and builder, returns to Boise State Athletics
Boise State student-athletes volunteered more than 1500 hours during the fall semester to give back to Bronco Nation.
This past season the Broncos combined to win five team conference championships, 26 individual conference titles, four conference athlete of the year awards, four conference coach of the year awards and a national championship.
The volleyball program won the Mountain West title, advancing to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history and ultimately capturing the first victory at the tournament with a sweep of No. 20 Western Kentucky before falling in the second round to eventual national champion Stanford. The men's cross country, women's basketball, gymnastics and swimming & diving programs also captured league titles.
This was all accomplished while setting a department record with a combined cumulative student-athlete grade-point average of 3.31 at the conclusion of the academic year. Additionally, 178 student-athletes garnered academic all-conference honors and five were named CoSIDA Academic All-Americans in 2016-17.
Apsey returned to Boise State in 2015-16, after nearly a year as the Athletic Director at Carroll College in Helena, Mont. He had previously served as the Broncos' senior associate athletic director from 1998-2014. He was also Boise State's interim athletic director for the final months of 2011.
In his first year back at Boise State, the Broncos combined to send eight programs to the postseason. Included were both the men's and women's cross country teams, the first time in school history that each program advanced to the NCAA Championships. Broncos also combined to capture 38 individual conference titles, and the gymnastics team captured its second of three-straight league championships.
Boise State claimed 172 academic all-conference honors in 2015-16, falling in line with a trend of academic excellence for Bronco student-athletes. At the conclusion of his first year overseeing Boise State Athletics, the all-department single-semester GPA was a record 3.24, a mark that was matched in fall of 2016 and surpassed in spring of 2017 (3.28).
Following the fall 2016 semester, each program boasted a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher for the first time in school history, and gymnastics concluded the year with the highest cumulative team GPA on record (3.78).
Prior to rejoining Boise State, Apsey oversaw a successful 2014-15 season in which Carroll College captured the Frontier Conference's Bandy Memorial All-Sports Trophy, winning conference championships in both football and men's cross country.
In addition to the outright league title, Carroll's football team earned the No. 1 seed in the NAIA Football Championship Series, advancing to the quarterfinals. The men's and women's cross country teams each finished in the top 10 at the NAIA National Championships -- the highest finishes in program history -- and the women's basketball team advanced to the NAIA Division I Championship.
Apsey also oversaw the first men's soccer and softball seasons in Carroll College history.
Of the department's 15 programs, 14 recorded grade-point averages above 3.0, and the nearly 400 student-athletes combined for a department GPA of 3.24.
In his time at Boise State, Apsey has worked with both corporate and individual donors to make long-lasting improvements to Boise State athletics and athletics facilities. He headed the "Initiative for Athletic Excellence" capital campaign to improve and expand athletic facilities that included the Caven-Williams Indoor Sports Complex ($10 million, 2006), the Stueckle Sky Center ($37 million, 2008), the Arguinchona Basketball Complex ($3 million, 2011) and the Bleymaier Football Center ($22 million, 2013).
Before arriving at Boise State, Apsey served as assistant director of athletics at California State University San Bernardino for four years, and spent 1990-94 as assistant director of development at CSU Bakersfield.
Apsey earned a degree in physical education from Cal Poly in 1988. He was a four-year starter for the men's soccer team where he set the school's career record for most goals scored and served as assistant coach for six years. He and his wife Teresa have two children, Sofia and Madison.
