The College of Idaho is restructuring leadership roles within its athletics department, with longtime C of I coach and administrator Reagan Rossi to become the Coyotes’ first female athletic director.
Rossi is in her 18th year at the college, the last four as associate athletic director. She previously served as head women’s basketball coach for 13 years.
Rossi earned a BA in athletic training at Saint Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa in 1994 and went on to earn a master’s degree in sports administration from Morehead State University in Kentucky in 2000. She joined the C of I staff in 1995, assisting Todd Corman in reinstating women’s basketball at the College. She returned in 2001 as head women’s basketball coach, a post she held until 2014.
As a head coach at the C of I, Rossi won 244 games and a pair of Cascade Conference Tournament titles (2010, 2012) while leading the Lady Yotes to five consecutive NAIA Division II National Tournament appearances. Since being promoted to associate athletic director, Rossi has served as the C of I’s Title IX Officer while overseeing budgeting, facility scheduling and compliance.
Athletic Director Marty Holly is stepping down after 35 years in the role.
