UC Davis assistant football coach Mike Moroski was set to be announced as the new head football coach for the College of Idaho at 11 a.m. today, according to multiple Idaho news agencies.
The 1979 UCD graduate has been on staff since 1988 with former head coach Bob Biggs, who retired after the 2012 season. Moroski, a California native, played in the NFL from 1979-86 as the signal caller for the Atlanta Falcons, Houston Oilers and San Francisco 49ers.
The College of Idaho is restarting its program after an approximate 30-year hiatus. The NAIA program, which hung up its cleats in the 1970s, will open play in 2014 in the Frontier Conference.
According the campus website, adding football for the Coyotes — who play in Simplot Stadium near the Caldwell campus — will bring the current men’s and women’s varsity teams competing in the NAIA and USCSA to 19. Additionally, it sent four of its alumni to the NFL.
