The University of Idaho has extended its administrative leave for its athletic director Rob Spear.

The university said Thursday said the leave was extended until an external review into how the department handled past allegations of sexual assault is completed, the report has been reviewed and a decision into Spear's employment is made.

Spear was put on a 60-day administrative leave in April after several former female athletes brought to the university’s attention past sexual assault allegations.

“It is never easy to examine one’s own actions critically,” said President Chuck Staben. “We know we have made improvements in how we approach sexual assault allegations but we need to know that we are doing all we can to keep our students safe. That is our number one priority.”
