Boise State Athletic Director Jeramiah Dickey announced on Oct. 21 the hiring of Nathan Burk as the Broncos’ Associate Athletic Director for Compliance.
Burk’s job description includes serving on the athletic department’s senior leadership and serving as the primary administrator for the men’s and women’s cross-country and track and field teams.
“I am excited to add Nathan to our senior management team,” Dickey said. “He is a leader, has extensive experience in collegiate athletics and his blue-collar, team-first mentality will fit in well with our department.”
Before being hired at Boise State, Burk spent the past four years as the senior associate athletic director for compliance and administration at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. He oversaw the athletic department’s strength and conditioning and sports medicine staff, in addition to serving as the sports program administrator for men’s and women’s tennis.
“I’d like to first thank director of athletics Jeramiah Dickey and the members of the search committee for affording me this opportunity to join the Boise State Athletics Department,” Burk said. “Throughout this process, I was taken in by the passion of everyone I met with at Boise State. The love, pride and excitement they demonstrate for their University and their city is inspiring. I look forward to building upon the incredible foundation that has been established in Boise and working together as a campus community to discover what’s next for the Broncos.”
Originally from Farmington, Utah, Burk served as the assistant director of compliance for two years at Brigham Young University. Burk has earned multiple degrees over the years including his Juris doctorate from the American University Washington College of Law in 2012, his bachelor’s in French from University of Utah in 2008 and an associate’s degree from Dixie State in 2006.
