Former Vandal Coach Files Lawsuit Against University

UPDATE: MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - Fired University of Idaho football coach Robb Akey has filed a lawsuit against the school.
    
The Idaho State Judiciary website lists the suit as having been filed April 16 in Latah County and names the University of Idaho, University of Idaho Board of Regents, and the Idaho State Board of Education as defendants.
    
Akey was fired in October 2011 with the Vandals 1-7. He was 20-50 in five-plus seasons as head coach.
    
Akey's contract approved in 2010 and extending through 2014 paid him a  base salary of nearly $165,800 in state funds, with an additional $190,000 in media compensation from private donations, for a total of $355,800. It's unclear what Akey is seeking in the lawsuit.
    
School officials didn't return a call from The Associated Press.
