Back to the Future: It’s Erickson

A cool picture of Dennis Erickson's first stint with the Vandals in 1974. That's Head Coach Ed Troxel with assistants Erickson (kneeling left), John McMahon, Gary Knecht, and Andy Christoff. Above, Erickson as head coach of the Seattle Seahawks.

"The University of Idaho has scheduled a press conference for 6:30 p.m. MST today to announce Dennis Erickson as their new football coach. The popular Erickson is returning to the Moscow campus, where he won 32 games and a Big Sky Conference championship in four previous seasons with the program (1982-85). He went on to win two national championships at the University of Miami and became a head coach in the NFL with San Francisco and Seattle."
