The College of Idaho will play its football in the Frontier Conference. The Coyotes in May announced they would reinstate their football program for the 2014 season.

The Frontier Conference, an NAIA league, will have nine football-playing members in 2014. Those schools are: Carroll College, Dickinson State University, Eastern Oregon, Montana Tech, Montana Western, MSU-Northern, Rocky Mountain College and Southern Oregon University.

The College of Idaho plays its other sports in the Cascade Conference.

“This is an ideal match, and we look forward to the excitement that Yotes fans will experience as we develop rivalries with our fellow members of the conference," College of Idaho President Marv Henberg said in a statement.

The College of Idaho disbanded its football program in 1977.

The next order of business for the Coyotes: Hiring a coach. The school hopes to begin its search in September and hire a coach in December.

Agreed

I'll certainly take in a game or two per season when the Broncos are on the road. Hopefully it feels a little less "corporate."
