Seton Sobolewski
Idaho State Women’s Head Coach

Sobolewski was hired as the 12th head coach in Idaho State women’s basketball history on May 27, 2008.

He quickly established a winning culture and soon became the winningest coach in program history with his 94th win on Feb. 1, 2014 against his alma matter Northern Arizona. He also led Idaho State to its fifth Big Sky Conference Title and was named Big Sky Conference Women’s Basketball Coach of the Year during the 2021-22 season. The Bengals repeated as regular-season Big Sky Champions in 2021-22. Idaho State went 19-12 overall on the season. Idaho State earned an invite to the WNIT where they faced the University of Wyoming in Laramie, falling just short in overtime 76-73.

Through 13 seasons at Idaho State, Sobolewski has compiled a 249-181 record overall with an 157-94 Big Sky record. Prior to the change in the Big Sky conference tournament structure where every team makes post-season play, Sobolewski led ISU to 11-straight tournament appearances, the second longest streak in the Big Sky during the same time period.

Grant Leep
Seattle Pacific Men’s Head Coach

In 2022-23 Grant Leep enters his seventh season as head men’s basketball coach at Seattle Pacific. He is in his 14th year on the staff after serving seven seasons as an assistant coach.

Leep’s career record is 97-58 through the 2021-22 campaign. He directed the Falcons to a 14-13 record last season and a sixth-place standing in the GNAC at 7-8.

The Falcons fashioned a fine 10-3 record in the pandemic-condensed 2021 season that was contested entirely between January and March in empty arenas as spectators were not allowed. No conference season was contested and SPU’s opportunity to participate in the NCAA Division II Tournament was nixed by a campus rule forbidding out-of-state travel due to Covid-19 concerns.

Leep, 42, has strong basketball connections throughout the Northwest. He was an All-America player at Mount Vernon (Wash.) High School before lettering four years at the University of Washington. His coaching resumé includes stops at Eastern Washington University and a pair of community colleges. Leep is married to the former Allison Richardson, a volleyball standout at Washington. They have two young daughters, Avery and Harper.

Mike Burn
Boise State University Assistant Men’s Coach

Mike Burns has spent six seasons as an assistant coach with Boise State men’s basketball. Burns has made a huge impact for the Broncos, as his expertise on the defensive end has helped to establish Boise State’s championship identity.

In 2021-22, Boise State leaned on its defense all season on the way to claiming the outright Mountain West regular-season championship, the conference tournament title and a spot in the NCAA Tournament.

The Broncos finished the season with the nation’s 20th-ranked defense according to KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency metric.

The Broncos ranked 13th nationally in scoring defense, allowing 60.9 points per game, including limiting 15 opponents to fewer than 60 points this season. With Burns on staff, Boise State has posted three of the program’s top six adjusted defensive efficiency marks in the KemPom era (since 1997). Burns spent the 2015-16 season as the interim head coach at Pacific. He was also previously the head coach at Eastern Washington. During his 22 years of collegiate coaching, Burns has spent time in the Pac-12, West Coast and Big Sky Conferences. Burns and his wife, Mary, have two children – Bode and Kylie.
