Steve Fuelling joins the Boise State cross country and track and field staff as an assistant coach after a two-year stint as an assistant at Temple University.

In his first season with the Broncos, Fuelling helped lead the Boise State men's cross country team to a Mountain West title and an appearance at the 2016 NCAA Cross Country Championship, with Yusuke Uchikoshi winning the Mountain West individual title and earning All-American honors. Fuelling also helped sophomore Brenna Peloquin to a sixth-place finish at the national championship.

On the track, Fuelling helped Allie Ostrander to a national title in the 3,000m steeplachase, and an All-American finish in the 5,000m at the 2017 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Ostrander went on to be named the Mountain West Female Athlete of the Year.

Fuelling's first season with the Broncos brought a total of 26 All-Mountain West honors.

While at Temple, Fuelling specialized in coaching the men's and women's distance runners and directing team operations. In his two years with Temple, the men's cross country team improved to a school-best fourth-place team finish in the American Conference and Blanca Fernandez ran to All-American honors and multiple conference titles. School records were broken in every distance track event during his two years.

He came to Temple from the University of Illinois where he served as a volunteer assistant coach for the men’s cross country and track & field teams. During his time at Illinois, the Fighting Illini received their first national cross country ranking in over 15 years, while Jannis Toepfer qualified for the NCAA Championships. During the indoor track season, eight individual Illini entered Illinois' all-time top-10 lists. Outdoors saw the distance crew rack up 21 points at the Big Ten Championships, led by Big Ten 800 meter champion Joe McAsey.

Fuelling graduated from Grand Valley State University (Allendale, Mich.) with a bachelor's degree in sport management in 2013. At GVSU, Fuelling was a member of the cross country and track & field teams, where he was a two-time All-American and GLIAC Athlete of the Year. Fuelling also helped the team earn two third-place finishes and a seventh-place finish at the Division II NCAA Championships, scoring points for the team each year.

Fuelling is from Milford, Mich., and is a USATF Level I Certified Coach.
