Local football fans will have their first opportunity in more than 35 years to tailgate at a small college game when The College of Idaho’s reinstated program kicks off this fall, and spots are on sale now.
The College of Idaho, KTIK AM 1350 and Jon Carson Productions are teaming up to provide live radio broadcasts of the Coyote football team’s return to the gridiron this fall. All 11 regular-season C of I football games will be broadcast live on KTIK and streamed live online at www.ktik.com.
The College of Idaho football program today offered the first glimpse of what its players will wear on the field when the Coyotes return to the gridiron this fall.
The Coyotes will sport gold helmets with a purple C of I logo on the sides, head coach Mike Moroski announced following the team’s spring showcase on campus. The final design was decided by a vote amongst C of I students, alumni, faculty and staff.
College of Idaho Athletic Director Marty Holly has announced the resignation of Reagan Rossi as head women's basketball coach in order to assume full-time duties as associate athletic director. Rossi just completed her 13th season at the helm of the Lady Yotes and led the team to five NAIA Division II national tournament appearances during her tenure. Her top assistant, former C of I men's basketball head coach, Mark Owen, will assume the head coaching position in July.
College of Idaho Athletic Director Marty Holly has been named the 2013 NAIA Athletics Director of the Year, the national office announced Monday. This prestigious award is given annually to an athletics director for his or her accomplishments in all facets of athletics administration over the course of the previous year. Holly will be formally recognized at the 73rd Annual NAIA Convention Awards Luncheon on Saturday, April 12 in Kansas City, Mo.
The College of Idaho has received a $25,000 gift from Jacksons Food Stores to help fund construction of the Wolfe Field Baseball Stadium, a state-of-the-art baseball complex that will rival any in the Intermountain West.
College of Idaho head football coach Mike Moroski has announced the hiring of Chris Jewell as the Coyotes' defensive coordinator.
“I am very excited to announce the hiring of Chris Jewell as our defensive coordinator,” Moroski said. “Coach Jewell is a great person and a very detailed and thorough teacher. In addition, he embraces the standards of excellence of The College of Idaho, our athletic department, and the football program.”
A total of 240 days separate College of Idaho fans and the debut of the school’s newly reinstated intercollegiate football team as the Coyotes will open their 11-game 2014 season on Sept. 6.
The Yotes will open the season on the road at Pacific University, returning to the Treasure Valley for their Simplot Stadium debut Sept. 13, hosting Montana Western.
The opener in Forest Grove, Ore., will come 13,438 days after the final game played by the original C of I team Nov. 12, 1977 – also against the Boxers. The Yotes were victorious in that final game, 24-23.
