Ed Knecht was Idaho’s athletic director from 1969-74, as well as the Executive Director of the Vandal Boosters. Knecht was in charge of the athletic department when Idaho built one of the unique college arenas in the nation, the ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center, also known as the Kibbie Dome. Ground broke on the project in Knecht’s first year with the school and finished in 1975, the year after he left. During his time at Idaho, the football team took home the 1971 Big Sky title. In Knecht’s last year with the school in 1974, both the women’s basketball and volleyball programs debuted at Idaho.
