BOISE Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — Boise State has hired its next athletic director out of Baylor University.

Jeramiah Dickey is currently the vice-president for athletics at the Texas school. He’s been at Baylor since 2017.

Prior to Baylor, he worked his way up to deputy athletics director at Houston. He’s also held positions at Akron and UTEP.

“Throughout this process, I have spoken with many of Bronco Athletics’ most important past leaders and supporters for their insights. Their guidance played a key role for me,” said Tromp. “Our dedicated committee forwarded a pool of candidates whose caliber was stunning — people who represented some of the best athletics programs in the country and who wanted the opportunity to lead our Broncos. We stayed true to the profile we had built in concert with the department and our supporters: Jeramiah Dickey not only matched that profile perfectly, he rose to the top of the candidate pool. His blue -collar work ethic, humility, rich past experience, and extraordinary performance make him an excellent fit for advancing Boise State.”

“The search committee set out to find an athletic director who embodies Boise State’s values, someone who has demonstrated integrity, is academically focused, collaborative and inclusive, someone who can develop relationships and engage with campus and community partners,” said search committee chair Randy Hales. “Jeramiah’s experience has exceeded our expectations, and we are confident he will help Bronco Athletics continue on this exciting upward trajectory.”

Dickey earned his bachelor’s degree in sport management from the University of Texas in 2004 and a master’s of sport science & coaching from the University of Akron in 2018.

”I am excited and humbled by the opportunity to lead Bronco Athletics,” said Dickey. “There is no question the Boise State national brand resonates at the highest levels in college athletics. The successes surrounding all of Bronco Athletics are well known. I am looking forward to working with President Tromp as we build on that solid foundation of all of our programs.”

One of his first roles will be to hire a football coach, after Bryan Harsin left for Auburn.
