BOISE STATE TENURE (2012-present)

Cody Butler is in his sixth year with the Boise State women’s basketball program and his 18th overall as a collegiate coach. Butler’s responsibilities at Boise State include coaching the guards, recruiting, scouting, team workouts and assisting with the offense.

During Butler’s six years with the Broncos he has helped the team to 95 victories, four consecutive winning seasons and three postseason appearances (two NCAA, one WBI). The first postseason appearance was the 2014 Women’s Basketball Invitational where the team advanced to the second round. The last was the first round of 2015 NCAA Tournament after the team won the Mountain West Tournament.

Under Butler's tutelage at Boise State, guard Deanna Weaver earned both WBCA All-Region and honorable mention All-American honors in 2014-15, Weaver (2013-14) and Brandi Henton (2012-13) were each named Mountain West Conference Newcomer of the Year, and Yaiza Rodriguez (2013-14) and Marta Hermida (2015-16) were each named MW Freshman of the Year. Bronco guards have been named All-Mountain West seven times with one honorable mention, one All-MW Defensive Team member, three All-MW Freshman Team honorees, two CoSIDA Academic All-Region honorees and 14 student-athletes that have received a total of 27 Academic All-MW Team honors.

Most recently, guard Brooke Pahukoa established herself as one of the best Bronco players in program history, twice being named to the All-Mountain West Team (2016-17), as well as being honored twice as the Mountain West Tournament Most Valuable Player (2015, 2017).


Butler joined Boise State’s staff from Yakima Valley Community College where he spent 12 years coaching. He started out as the assistant men’s and women’s basketball coach for the first three years from 2000-2003. In the summer of 2003 he was promoted to head coach of the women’s program. During his tenure at the helm of the YVCC women Butler guided his teams to one NWAACC championship, four eastern division titles, nine-consecutive NWAACC tournament appearances, six tournament final fours and three-consecutive trips to the championship game (2010-12). His team went undefeated in region play during its regional title run in 2009 and won it all in 2011. Butler was named the region coach of the year in 2009 and the NWAACC Coach of the Year in 2011.

Butler’s success was just as solid off the court, graduating a extremely high percentage of his student-athletes. As head coach he also was responsible for his program’s operation, fund raising, community involvement, clinics and camps.

In addition to his coaching duties at YVCC, Butler served the last seven years as an assistant athletic director where he participated in the daily operations of the athletic department from the running of facilities to event management. He also assisted the athletic director in the development and maintaining of the department’s budget. Butler served four years as one of the school’s representatives to the NWAACC and six years on the association’s women’s basketball committee.


Butler is native of Hagerman, Idaho, but graduated from Elko High School in Nevada. Butler played basketball for Yakima Valley Community College where he was a team captain. He originally attended the University of Nevada in Reno but the love of the game compelled him to transfer to Yakima Valley Community College for the opportunity to play again. After a successful junior college career Butler returned to the University of Nevada where he earned his Bachelor of General Studies degree in 2005. He is currently working on a Masters in Coaching and Athletic Administration through Concordia University at Irvine, Calif.
