“His swimming and coaching experiences with national championship programs will be an asset to our team, added Hill. “Justin understands our commitment to be a successful and highly competitive swimming and diving program at the conference and national level, and he is committed to helping our women be at their best outside the pool in the classroom and beyond. We can't wait for him to arrive and get started."

Competitively, Justin was a three-year varsity letter winner at Truman State University from 2001 to 2004. He achieved several NCAA-II “B” cuts during his career and is still ranked in the Truman Swimming All-Time Top 10 in both the 200 Breaststroke and 400 IM. In high school he was a member of the Springfield Aquatics senior team, was multiple event qualifier at the sectional level and a USA Swimming Zone Champion in the 200 breaststroke his junior year.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to work with Coach Hill and be a part of creating a tradition of excellence at Boise State,” said Brosseau. “This team has made great strides in just two years, and I am looking forward to helping Boise State Swimming develop into a force at the conference and national levels. Its a great university in a fantastic city, and the athletic department is very supportive of the program.”
