Q: Was it appropriate to terminate Idaho coach Robb Akey’s contract mid-season? Should the decision have been made after the season concluded?
“It’s better to hurt a little more this season and have the time to find a coach that can build this program and lead us to victory. The athletic department is looking forward, as they should be.”
—J Jacob Marsh
“After. Akey didn’t deserve the cheap shot or getting fired during the season. He deserves respect.”
“I like Akey and I wish him well in his future endeavors. However, I will agree that it’s time to go forward. Just one thing is lingering in the way. Spear should resign today so that U of I can be better tomorrow.”
“Changing coaches mid-season ruins the morale of a team. We are not going to win anymore games just because he is gone. What we need is more belief in our program and better recruiting.”
