In 1967, Ed Troxel moved north to the University of Idaho in Moscow as an assistant coach in both football and track. He was the head coach for the track team from 1970 until 1974, stepping down when he became the head coach of the football team, which lasted for four seasons. One of his notable hires was his first offensive coordinator, a 27 year-old Dennis Erickson, hired away from Montana, who stayed for two seasons. After a successful 7-4 season in 1976 (5-1 in the Big Sky), the Vandals fell to a disappointing 3-8 in '77, and Ed Troxel, age 52, was fired during the week of Christmas, ending his eleven seasons in Moscow.
