Vandal Athletics has projected a million-dollar deficit for 2017 fiscal year
MOSCOW, ID —
The University of Idaho Athletics Department is in the red. According to documents from the Idaho State Board of Education, Idaho Athletics has projected a million-dollar deficit in its 2017 fiscal year.
The university exhausted its reserve fund this past fiscal year, and is now asking the ISBOE to raise the cap on institutional funding for the state.
According to its Chief Communications Officer Blake Youde, the board will not make a decision until April. They want more information from the U of I on the deficit, and measures to prevent the shortfall in coming years.
