Co-head coach Neil Resnick just concluded his ninth season at the helm of the Boise State gymnastics team, fresh off one of the best years in program history. Under the direction of Bird and Resnick, the Broncos have gone 166-56 (.748) and have finished in the nation's top-25 all nine seasons, including a 13th-place finish in 2011.
The 2016 season saw Boise State compile an 18-2 record, giving the program their best winning percentage (.900) in school history. The Broncos finished the regular season a perfect 15-0, making them the only team in the country out of the 82 that occupy Divisions I, II and III to accomplish the feat in the 2016 season.
In addition, Bird and Resnick guided the program to their highest weekly ranking (No. 9) in program history twice over the course of the banner year, reaching the ranking on Feb. 1 and Feb. 15. The team’s final RQS of 196.570 is the highest in school history, and the program’s fall semester GPA of 3.81 was the highest for any team in Boise State athletic department history.
The 197.325 team score in the tri-meet against Southern Utah and San Jose State on March 11, 2016 was the highest team score in program history. The Broncos won the MRGC title for the second-straight year, and extended their undefeated record at home to four-straight years.
The co-head coaches have led their team to nine NCAA Regional appearances, placing as high as third, while also capturing four Western Athletic Conference Championships (WAC) titles, one WAC regular season in 2008 as well as two back-to-back Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference titles in 2015 and 2016.
The duo has garnered the honors of WAC Co-Head Coaches of the Year in 2008, 2009 and 2013, along with Mountain Rim Gymnastics Conference Co-Head Coaches of the Year in 2016, as well as the NCAA West Regional Co-Head Coaches of the Year honor in 2008.
In addition to their own accolades, Bird and Resnick have coached numerous student-athletes to top honors. Amy Glass was named the 2012 AAI Award winner for the nation's top gymnast, while also earning the 2010 NCAA West Region Gymnast of the Year and 2011 WAC Gymnast of the Year honors. Joining her as top conference honorees, Hannah Redmon and Caitlin Mann earned WAC Gymnast of the Year nods in 2008 and 2013, respectively. In 2014, Ciera Perkins earned MRGC Gymnast of the Year honors. Redmon was also named WAC Freshman of the Year in 2008, while Maddie Krentz earned the honor in 2013. In her rookie year, Diana Mejia won MRGC Co-Freshman of the Year accolades in 2014, and Shani Remme earned the same honor outright in 2016.
2016 also saw three Broncos achieve All-America status – the most of such an honor in a single season in program history. Krystine Jacobsen was a first-team honoree on the uneven bars, and both Krentz and Sandra Collantes received second-team nods on floor. Jacobsen finished the regular season tied for first in the country on uneven bars with an RQS of 9.95, making her the first Bronco in program history to end the regular season ranked first in the country in any event.
Glass was the first NCAA All-American under the coaching duo, earning a second-team honor on balance beam (9.90) after her seventh-place finish at the 2012 NCAA Championships. She went on to set NCAA meet school records on vault (9.875), beam (9.90), floor (9.850) and all-around (39.275). Glass was also the first two-time national qualifier under Bird and Resnick, advancing to the national meet in 2011 and 2012 in the all-around. Redmon was the coaches' first NCAA qualifier, advancing in 2010 on vault and floor exercise, while Bekah Gher advanced on beam in 2011. The same trio of NCAA qualifiers earned NCAA Regional wins on vault (Redmon, 2010; Glass, 2012), beam (Gher, 2011) and floor exercise (Redmon, 2010) in the past seven years. 2014 saw two gymnasts qualify for the national meet again, with Kelsey Morris advancing on bars and Ciera Perkins on floor exercise. Kelsey Morris qualified again in 2015, competing in her second year in the all-around. Remme qualified to the national meet as a freshman in 2016 after winning the balance beam title at the Tuscaloosa Regional.
Bird and Resnick have produced 14 WAC individual event champions, nine MRGC individual event champions, 21 All-WAC First Team, 16 All-MRGC First Team, 20 All-WAC Second Team and six All-MRGC Second Team honorees. Their gymnasts have also earned 17 WAC Gymnast of the Week, eight MRGC Gymnast of the Week, 22 WAC Specialist of the Week and 23 MRGC Specialist of the Week nods.
Since the pair took control of the program, the Broncos have earned 20 of the school's top-25 all-time best team scores. The Broncos also set the school's top team mark on vault, earning a score of 49.575 at the 2010 NCAA Regional meet. Resnick helped the team achieve its highest team bars score, a 49.575 done against Alaska Anchorage in 2015. The program’s top score on floor (49.575) has been achieved twice (2013 and 2016) in the pair’s tenure. Individually, three Broncos have set school records under the guidance of Bird and Resnick, including Glass (season all-around wins, 9; and season beam wins, 7), Jacobsen (season bars wins, 9; bars school record, 9.975), Perkins (season floor wins, 9), Redmon (season floor wins, 8; career floor wins, 21), and Lindsay Ward (career bars wins, 20; career beam wins, 18), while five (Kelsey Black, 2013; Collantes, 2016; Krentz, 2016; Brittany Potvin-Green, 2012 & 2013; Sarah Smith, 2008) have tied the school record on floor (9.950). In her senior season, Ciera Perkins recorded a perfect 10.0 on vault, done against Utah State in 2015.
In conference and regional competitions, the Broncos have set multiple school records, including the team's conference vault performance in 2013 (49.40), the bars’ score in 2016 (49.450) and the floor score in 2016 (49.575). In regional meets, the team has earned scores of 196.40 overall (2011), 49.575 on vault (2010) and 49.300 on bars (2014) for school records. Individually, Redmon holds school records in regional vault score (9.975), Morris set the regional bars score in 2014 (9.950), Perkins set the school record for regional floor score (9.900), Glass holds the best regional all-around score (39.450) and Remme (2016) and Gher (2011) both share the regional beam record score of 9.9.

In addition, the 2015 Broncos earned the No. 3 spot in the NACGC/W team academic rankings, the highest in school history
