Gavin O’Neal was hired as Boise State’s assistant track and field coach on Sep. 16, 2013 shortly after Corey Ihmels was named the head coach. O’Neal has made a huge impact on the Broncos’ sprints and jumps group entering his fifth season on the job.

O’Neal’s sprinters were the story of the 2017 Mountain West Outdoor Track and Field Championships, as the men’s group of Dusty Fisher, Bryce Kirby, Fernando Martinez and Alexandru Terpezan combined for 50 of the team’s 92 points. Kirby won the 100m title, the four teamed up to run the 4x400m relay school record (3:08.60) and also combined for seven All-Mountain West honors. All four athletes qualified to the NCAA West Preliminary Championships under O’Neal’s watch, as well.

He oversees all sprints and hurdles events, including the long jump and the triple jump. O’Neal has already led several Bronco athletes to a number of accomplishments while at Boise State;

While at Columbia, O’Neal was named the 2010 and 2011 Northeast Regional Coach of the Year while helping the women’s track and field team win the 2012 Ivy League Championship, giving the Lions their first track and field championship in school history.
