Two days into his position, Boise State University’s new athletic director Jeremiah Dickey outlined his priorities for his first 100 days in a press conference Monday.

 

 

With a focus on community, Dickey said his first priority in his new role will be getting to know coaching staff, donors and students athletes.  

“I'm not big on titles and I'm not big on individual accolades,” he said. “I'm big on team.”

 

Fundraising will be a looming concern, as well. In October, the university reported a $15 million loss in revenue after the pandemic forced the postponement of fall sports. Dickey didn’t clearly outline his fundraising plans, but said community and partnerships will be the focus. 

 

“My background is in fundraising and resource generation. And so whatever we don't have, we will go out and get,” he said.

 

He joins Boise State weeks after football coach Bryan Harsin left last month to coach at Auburn University in Alabama. Dickey is looking forward to working with the administration in finding a new head coach.
