POCATELLO — Idaho State University Athletic Director Jeff Tingey has been relieved of his duties but will continue to be paid his full salary until June 2019, according to ISU spokesman Stuart Summers.

“During the course of an operational review of the Idaho State Athletic Department, President Kevin Satterlee felt that it was in the best interest of the university to place Tingey on administrative leave,” Summers said in a Friday press release. “The university will announce an interim athletic director soon.”

Tingey was placed on administrative leave around 5 p.m. Friday, Summers told the Journal during a Friday night phone interview. The announcement came just a week before the start of the ISU football season. Tingey will continue to receive his annual salary of $150,467 until his contract expires in June 2019 while on paid administrative leave, ISU said.
