Mike Keller guided Idaho track & field through some of the most successful times in program history. Keller earned Big Sky Coach of the Year honors five times and Big West honors once.
He led the men’s track & field team to five Big Sky team titles in 1981, 1983, 1984, 1995 and 1996 and the 1997 MPSF indoor championship. When the team moved into the Big West, Keller’s team made themselves right at home, winning the outdoor championship convincingly. While Keller was head coach, Idaho student-athletes won 116 conference titles, earned six athlete of the year honors and 16 All-America honors.
