BY BOISE STATE ATHLETICS

BOISE, Idaho - In order to better align its programs with the Mountain West, and with the intent to add baseball in the future, Boise State announced Tuesday that it will no longer offer wrestling as an intercollegiate sport.

"This was not an easy decision, but one that needed to be made as we consider the long-term vision for Bronco athletics," said Director of Athletics Curt Apsey. "We will continue to honor the scholarships we provide our student-athletes, and will do all we can to help those who want to continue their collegiate wrestling careers elsewhere.

"Additionally, current coaching contracts will be honored."

The following was developed to answer questions regarding today’s announcement. Additional questions should be directed to Joe Nickell (joenickell@boisestate.edu/208-426-3868).
