At Boise State, Mullally succeeded longtime athletic director Lyle Smith in the summer of 1981. Less than a year later, Mullally resigned in March 1982 following criticism of his proposed ticketing policy for the school's football and basketball games. Assistant athletic director Gene Bleymaier was promoted by university president John Keiser and held the post for more than 29 years.
