The University of Idaho has announced that Paul Petrino will be its new head football coach.
The university said Monday that Petrino has produced some of the most prolific offenses in the nation as an assistant coach at several other schools.
Petrino replaces interim coach Jason Gesser, who guided the Vandals during the final four games after Robb Akey was fired.
Petrino spoke Monday of recruiting young men of good character for the Vandals. “We're going to make sure that we go out and get the very best character we can,” he explained.
