Assistant Coach


Mendoza Announces Staff

Staff includes Orozco, and former Broncos Jones and Hochstrasser.

Riley Orozco is entering his first year as an assistant coach with the Boise State wrestling team.

Orozco had worked as the head assistant coach with his alma mater, CSU Bakersfield, under first-year Bronco head coach Mike Mendoza for the last five seasons.

While wrestling for the Roadrunners, Orozco became just the 12th individual in school history to eclipse 100 victories, and the first to reach the NCAA Tournament four times. He captured the Pac-12 Championship individually at 197 pounds during his junior season.

As an assistant with CSU Bakersfield, Orozco helped Mendoza lead the program into the top 25 of the USA Today/National Wrestling Coaches Association Division I Coaches Poll, the school’s first ranking in 15 years. He oversaw the day-to-day operations for student-athletes, including coordination with the academic staff, resulting in a perfect single-year Academic Progress Rate score each of his final two seasons.

Orozco earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice in 2011 and a master’s degree in public administration this past June, both from CSU Bakersfield.
