Boise State president Marlene Tromp announced the furloughs in an email to staff on Monday night. 'I hope our swift action now can help us avoid what could be more grave action later and provide for the long-term well-being of both our community and the institution,' Tromp wrote in the email, which was obtained by the Idaho Statesman. The university said 12-month employees earning more than $40,000 per year are required to take furloughs between May 3 and July 31. The highest-paid employees making more than $150,000 annually will have to take 10-day furloughs. Broncos football coach Bryan Harsin, who earns $1.65 million in base salary, will forfeit about $63,000. Most of his assistant coaches are also subject to the 10-day requirement, along with men's basketball coach Leon Rice and women's basketball coach Gordy Presnell. Rice's base salary for 2019 was $705,292, and Presnell's was $242,128. 'I don't think it's going to be an unusual step as the days pass,' Mountain West Conference commissioner Craig Thompson told ESPN on Tuesday. 'Every day there's a different institution announcing a salary cut and those keep mounting.'"
