Reagan Rossi will replace Marty Holly as College of Idaho’s athletic director, the Yotes announced Tuesday. Holly, 70, who has been the athletic director since 1981, swaps offices with Rossi and becomes the associate athletic director in charge of fundraising.

Before spending four years as the associate AD, Rossi was the women’s basketball coach for 13 years, winning 244 games.

“I don’t really consider myself out of coaching — I consider it more coaching the coaches and the athletics staff. There will always be things that I miss about coaching, but I believe there are opportunities in my new position that can fill that void,’’ said Rossi, a native of Mukwonago, Wisc.

Holly, a member of the C of I and NAIA halls of fame, was the longest-tenured college AD in Idaho history.
