Boise State athletic director Mark Coyle, at the Big East Conference spring meetings, spoke with the media on Monday concerning his school’s participation in the league and the challenges ahead.

This from the Orlando Sentinel:

On whether Boise is still committed to the Big East: “Obviously they made a decision five months ago to join the Big East Conference and nothing has changed. We’re here at the Big East meetings and it’s great to learn a great deal about the conference and its direction.”

On whether Boise has found a home for its other sports: “We continue to explore all options. We have 18 teams in sports; with football that makes 19 sports. We want to make sure we find a good home for all of our sports. We continue to examine all of our options and continue to gather information in this changing landscape.”

On whether BCS automatic-qualification status played into Boise State’s decision to join the Big East: “No, not at all. When the decision was made, that was part of the thought process, that the AQ would go away, so that was not part of the process when we made that decision.”
