The College of Idaho football program now has a two-person coaching staff.
After head coach Mike Moroski was hired by the school back on Jan. 9, the Yotes announced Tim Keane as offensive coordinator on Thursday.
"I can’t think of anyone I’d rather have as my first assistant," said Moroski. "Tim was an outstanding center for our teams at Davis and a super-smart player."
Prior to taking over the Yotes football team, Moroski served as the offensive coordinator at UC Davis for 15 seasons. Keane was Moroski’s offensive line coach in 2007, before he returned to serve in the same role in 2010.
Between his stints at UC Davis, Keane spent two seasons at Tulane University.
Keane also played under Moroski at UC Davis. During his junior and senior seasons, Keane started 23 straight games and captured the team’s Bob Oliver Award, given to the program’s “unsung hero,” both years.
"(Keane) played an integral role in the biggest win in UC Davis history, defeating Stanford in 2005 - locking down former NFL defensive tackle, Baba Oshinowo."
In 2006, Keane was the center on an offensive line that allowed just 13 sacks on 419 pass attempts.
Keane will also serve as the Yotes offensive line coach.
Both Moroski and Keane were in attendance at the Boise State football team’s practice on Thursday morning.
It has been well documented that Bronco head coach Chris Petersen - who also played college ball at UC Davis - has been instrumental in helping the College of Idaho football program get off the ground.
When asked how everything is going, coach Moroski said “good,” adding that he has started to settle in in Caldwell.
