In an email sent to Idaho State University’s faculty and staff Thursday afternoon, ISU president Kevin Satterlee said Thiros, the school’s interim athletic director, will be considered for the permanent position – a shift in stance from Satterlee’s original statement that Thiros was merely an interim fix and would not be a candidate for the permanent position. Thiros was tapped as ISU’s interim athletic director Aug. 30, five days after former athletic director Jeff Tingey was placed on administrative leave. On Aug. 28, ISU announced that Tingey would not return to his post as the school’s athletic director. He would instead be replaced by an athletic director found via a national search. Satterlee’s first few months in office and Thiros’ stint as interim athletic director have coincided with an exciting start to ISU’s football season. The team has won four of its first six games and is in third place in the Big Sky Conference standings – unfamiliar territory for a program that typically struggles and sticks near the bottom of the standings. The team is surrounded by noticeable buzz throughout the community, including a revamped pregame tailgating environment spearheaded by Satterlee. – Madison Guernsey, idahostatejournal – Read More
