Pending approval by the Idaho State Board of Education, Boise State women's basketball coach Gordy Presnell is about to become the highest paid women's basketball coach in the Mountain West.

Presnell led the Broncos to a 28-5 season record, 16-2 in conference, 14-1 at home and yet another appearance in the NCAA Tournament. For that he was named the Mountain West coach of the year!

Now he;s looking at a new five year deal worth $300,000 a season, more than $425,000 if he hits all his bonuses!

Presnell has led the BSU women's basketball program for 14 seasons, since 2005 and has 667 career wins as a head coach, including his time at Seattle Pacific.

The State Board of Education is meeting today and tomorrow in Coeur d'Alene where they are also expected to approve the name change of Taco Bell arena to Extra Mile Arena.
