After a 10-day search, the University of Idaho has found its next head football coach – eight miles away. Washington State defensive coordinator Robb Akey (pictured above) has accepted an offer to become Idaho’s coach, multiple sources said Tuesday afternoon. Akey, 40, has been an assistant coach at WSU since 1998. He was promoted to defensive coordinator prior to the 2003 season. Akey’s duties also include coaching the defensive line. Akey assisted at Northern Arizona from 1995-98 and Weber State, his alma mater, from 1988-94. The Vandals reportedly narrowed their list to two Tuesday – Akey and Portland State coach Tim Walsh – before deciding on Akey — Jim Meehan/Spokesman-Review.
Question: Do you approve of the choice?
