Spokane, Wash. -

We have confirmed tonight that former Head Football Coach Robb Akey is suing the University of Idaho after being let go midway through last football season.  The move came with just four games remaining in the 2012 football season.

We reached Akey tonight and he declined to comment on the specifics on the advice of his attorney, but he did confirm that the law suit is happening.  Akey told us that he's just trying to get what he believes is fair.
