Hoover to retire as College of Idaho prez

Former University of Idaho President Bob Hoover, who has served as president of the private College of Idaho in Caldwell for the last five years, has announced that he’ll retire in June 2009, or sooner if the college’s board of trustees finds a replacement earlier. Hoover, 66, said he wants to spend more time with his family. Hoover was a popular president at UI until the university became embroiled in a financial fiasco involving an attempt to build a Boise branch campus, a ruckus that led to Hoover’s departure.
