Robb Akey knew his Idaho coaching staff needed a pick-me-up after a 70-28 loss to Louisiana Tech on Saturday. So he called a staff meeting for Sunday afternoon to suggest some changes, find some bright spots and go over recruiting plans heading into the final four games of the season. Before he got to meet with his staff, however, Idaho Athletic Director Rob Spear fired Akey. "I didn't expect it in the middle of the season. I knew we needed to win more games. We needed to win more — and that was an ugly game on top of it," Akey told the Idaho Statesman on Tuesday evening. "I expected to be able to finish the season"/Brian Murphy, Idaho Statesman.

Question: Should AD Spear have waited until season's end to fire Coach Robb Akey?
