A new $4 million facility supporting The College of Idaho’s athletic program will be named in honor of long-time Athletic Director Marty Holly.
The Marty Holly Athletics Center, now under construction on the C of I campus, is slated to open late next summer and will be the first new building on campus since the Village Apartments were completed in 2002.
The College of Idaho is launching a new weekly radio show hosted by Voice of the Coyotes Mike Safford and featuring head football coach Mike Moroski. “Yotes Den with Mike Moroski” will air Tuesdays from 7-8 p.m. on KOOL Oldies 99.5 FM through the end of the football season.
“Yotes Den” typically will air live from Stewart’s Bar and Grill in Caldwell, and fans are encouraged to attend. The first live show Oct. 29 will be held in the J.A. Albertson Activities Center prior to the “Meet the Yotes Night” basketball tipoff event.
A new era of Coyote basketball begins this fall at The College of Idaho, and the C of I basketball coaches want students, fans, season ticket holders and the entire Caldwell community to get to know their teams before the regular season tips off.
With that in mind, first-year men’s coach Scott Garson, women’s basketball coach Reagan Rossi and their respective teams will host “Meet the Yotes Night,” a basketball tipoff party set to begin at 8:15 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29 inside the J.A. Albertson Activities Center on the C of I campus in Caldwell.
The College of Idaho has received a $100,000 gift supporting its planned Athletics and Outdoor Education Center, slated to begin construction later this year.
The gift from the Larry and Marianne Williams Foundation will go toward the $3.5 million facility that will provide training and support facilities for the C of I’s student-athletes, including the reinstated football team that will begin competing in fall 2014.
A $100,000 gift supporting construction of The College of Idaho’s Athletics and Outdoor Education Center will honor former Coyote football coach and player Ed “Buzz” Bonaminio.
The head football coach’s office in the new facility will be named in honor of Bonaminio, who served as head coach of the College’s football team from 1965 through 1971. Bonaminio also played halfback for the Coyotes and graduated from the C of I in 1956. He received the College’s Alumni Service Award in 2002.
Longtime College of Idaho athletic director Marty Holly has been named the Cascade Conference Athletic Director of the Year, announced June 14 by CCC commissioner Rob Cashell. Holly, who recently completed his 32nd year at the C of I, earns the honor for the second time in the last five seasons. He also will be a nominee for the NAIA Athletic Director of the Year award, to be announced later this summer.
Football is officially back at The College of Idaho, and it’s time to celebrate! All C of I alumni and friends – including former football players and student-athletes from all Coyote teams – are invited to join us June 27-29 as the College hosts the Coyote Reunion celebrating the return of football as well as the soon-to-be-built Athletics and Outdoor Education Center.
College of Idaho athletic director Marty Holly has announced the hiring of UCLA assistant Scott Garson as the 15th men’s basketball head coach in program history.
“I am honored that President Henberg and Marty Holly have given me the opportunity to lead the men’s basketball program at The College of Idaho,” Garson said. “I feel very fortunate to be at an institution with such an outstanding academic reputation combined with a tremendous passion for its athletics programs across the board.”
When the reinstated College of Idaho football team returns to the field next fall, there’s a chance Cesar Montes will be the first Coyote to touch the football. Montes, a kicker and punter from McCall-Donnelly High School in north-central Idaho, is the latest member of Coach Mike Moroski’s initial recruiting class, and he’ll also play soccer at the College.
