PULLMAN - A familiar face strolled the sidelines on the Palouse Thursday afternoon.
Former Idaho head football coach Robb Akey was a visitor at Washington State practice. Akey says he's been 'on vacation' and enjoying extra time with his family.
Mike Leach extended an invitation to Akey to visit practice. The former WSU assistant says he plans on visiting more programs during his down time, in hopes of picking up new ideas and growing as a coach.
The Vandals fired Akey during his 6th season in Moscow last Fall. He doesn't expect to find a new coaching gig until after the 2013 season.
