Idaho AD Rob Spear fired by State Board of Education

The State Board of Education fired University of Idaho Athletic Director Rob Spear on Thursday, Aug. 16 — ending more than four months of speculation about his future with the Vandals. Spear had been on paid administrative leave since April 3 while U of I hired two independent investigators to study the athletic department’s handling of sexual assault and harassment complaints. Spear was placed on the initial 60-day leave the day before the ASUI student senate voted 10-5 to ask for his resignation.
