The College of Idaho football team will have a new look when the 2016 season kicks off on Sept. 3 against Montana Western, unveiling today a new helmet color and logo, along with two different sets of game pants.

After wearing a gold helmet with the College’s alternate “CI” logo on the sides, the Coyotes have changed the helmet color to an anodized purple, accompanied by a large Coyote head on either side and a metallic silver uniform number in the back.  The look is similar to that of the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings.

“I do not like to make changes every year and I am quite the traditionalist,” said head coach Mike Moroski.  “But the design is the artistic conception of our popular Supervisor of Equipment, John Grove.  I think he has captured a design that appeals to our players, alumni and fans.  We are all very excited about the new style.”

C of I will also have the option to wear either white or black pants for their games – with the word “YOTES” used as piping on either side of the pants.

The Yotes will continue to wear purple uniforms at home and white uniforms on the road.
