FBS bowl game NAU connection

Post by mtjack » Wed Jan 06, 2010 5:00 pm

NAU's old defense coordinator from back in the day, Robb Akey, leads the U of Idaho to it's first bowl victory since moving up to Division I.

I always got a kick out of watching him on the sideline in Flagstaff as he obviously loved what he was doing. Great "football" voice for a coach, also.

Congratulations, Mr. Akey.

Not only that, but Idaho's Offensive Coordinator is none other than long time NAU head coach Steve Axman
