REPORT: Idaho places Verlin on administrative leave

According to a report from the from the The Spokesman-Review, University of Idaho head basketball coach Don Verlin has been placed on paid administrative leave. This comes after the university received a consultants report which detailed three possible NCAA violations from within the men’s basketball program.

From The Spokesman-Review, “Verlin’s administrative leave is initially for 10 business days. But the situation surrounding it remains fluid, and the leave could be shortened or extended, according to (athletics department spokesman Mike) Walsh, and it might result in Verlin being fired.”

Verlin has been the head coach at Idaho since 2008-09 where he has compiled a 177-176 record. This past season, the Vandals limped through a 5-27 (2-18) campaign, after going 22-9 the year before.
