MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — Fired University of Idaho football coach Robb Akey has filed a lawsuit against the school.

The Idaho State Judiciary website lists the suit as having been filed April 16 in Latah County and names the University of Idaho, University of Idaho Board of Regents, and the Idaho State Board of Education as defendants.

Akey was fired in October with the Vandals 1-7. He was 20-50 in five-plus seasons as head coach.

Akey's contract, approved in 2010 and extending through 2014, paid him a base salary of nearly $165,800 in state funds, plus an additional $190,000 in media compensation from private donations, for a total of $355,800.

In the lawsuit, Akey contends the university has failed to pay him for media participation, and he seeks an unspecified amount to be determined at trial. Akey said he fulfilled his contract with the university by participating in all required media programs and public appearances.

Athletic director Rob Spear declined to comment.
